We get hurt. Sometimes people do and say things to hurt us on purpose.  Sometimes they do not mean it, but it hurts anyway.   Holding onto hurts is not good for us.  Forgiveness is hard but we do our best to forgive and let go because to love is to forgive.

  • Pick up a tablet and hold it in your hands.
  • Think about those hurt feelings and about the person who hurt you.
  • Say a prayer for this person.
  • When you feel ready, drop the tablet into the water.
  • As you watch the tablet dissolve imagine forgiving the person who has upset you and the hurt disappearing.
