Bestselling author Ned Hallowell shows that forgiveness is strength— and it's also essential to living a healthy, happy life.
Forgiveness is not turning the other cheek, it is not running away and it does not mean that you condone what someone has done, nor does it invite him or her to do it again. Forgiveness doesn't mean that you don't want an offender to be punished, it doesn't mean that you'll forget the offense, or that by forgiving you tacitly invite bad things to happen again. And forgiving doesn't mean you won't defend yourself or that you must love (or stop disliking) the person you are forgiving."
Forgiveness is not a sign of weakness but of strength. Bestselling author, Dr. Edward Hallowell also argues that it's healthy, brave, contagious, and sets you free.
In Dare To Forgive, Dr. Hallowell not only explains why forgiveness is one of the best things you can do to heal your body and mind; he also offers a practical, four part plan for achieving it. Whether you're holding a lifelong grudge or being eaten alive by the daily frustration of modern life.
True stories illustrate the power of forgiveness in real lives, from a wife who forgives the hurtful words of her husband, to a mother who forgives the man who kidnapped and murdered her daughter.
