Working It Out
Dr. Hallowell says this step is difficult, but you need to analyze your anger and put your life back into perspective.
  • Flatten the hook (what's holding you back) and rid yourself of the anger that is keeping you from forgiveness. Praying and mediating can help.
  • Take inventory and give thanks for all the things you do have.
  • You can imagine vengeance—just don't act on it.
  • Think of your future. Know that you and your loved ones will be better off once you have rid yourself of any vengeful thinking.
