Moving Forward: Six Steps to Forgiving Yourself and Breaking Free from the Past Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“I can never forgive myself,” she said. “Every time I think about it, I get sick to my stomach.”

I knew that feeling. I had felt it due to my own failures and shortcomings. I also knew I could help her, because I know that sometimes the hardest person to forgive is yourself.

 

The partial truth about us is hard to accept: We hurt those we love. We fail to step in when others need us most. We do wrong—and we need forgiveness. From others and from God, but also from ourselves.

 

But the full truth about us is liberating and freeing: while we are more deeply flawed than we can imagine, we also are far more valuable and cherished than we can comprehend. To reach the place of self-forgiveness, we must  embrace this  truth. The gift of God’s acceptance frees us from self-blame, guilt, and shame.

 

In this practical, inspiring book, Dr. Everett Worthington identifies six steps to forgiving yourself:

·         Receive God’s forgiveness

·         Repair relationships

·         Rethink ruminations

·         REACH emotional self-forgiveness

·         Rebuild self-acceptance

·         Resolve to live virtuously

 

Weaving his own story of struggling with his brother’s suicide and his overwhelming feelings of regret, together with psychological insight, scientific research, and biblical truth, Dr. Worthington opens a clear path to freedom from self-condemnation to self-acceptance and most importantly, to the full life that Christ promises.

Review:

"The author (A Just Forgiveness) draws from the personal experience of the murder of his mother and the suicide of his brother to examine moving on after trauma or tragedy. Writing as a Christian and a clinical psychologist, he identifies the source of problems as three ruminations: Satan, sin and self. Drawing from research he has done over his lifetime as well as other research plus scripture and good common sense, Worthington, who teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University, constructs a narrative for living a life beyond guilt. Through his work with the Templeton Foundation Campaign for Forgiveness Research and his life as a clinical psychologist, he presents a path worth following, the REACH method for emotional forgiveness (Recall hurt; replace unforgiveness with Empathy; give the Altruistic gift of forgiveness; Commit to it; Hold on through doubt). His exposition is full of easy to follow formulas for the individual seeking to get through a crisis. This book is for people of faith facing difficulties in their lives.
