Letting go of the past was one of the hardest lessons I have had to learn, yet it is a practice I need to connect back to often. Are you starting to shift in your chair uncomfortably just thinking about forgiveness? When I discuss this stage of healing in lectures or with my individual clients, I hear deep sighs. Then I hear the response I used to give myself, "Yeah, but..."
"Yeah, but you don't know how unfair my ex-boss was to me." "Yeah but you don't know how long it took to diagnose my medical issues."
