Forgiving what you can't forget : discover how to move on, make peace with painful memories, and create a life that's beautiful again / Lysa TerKeurst.
"Lysa TerKeurst helps readers address how to stop suffering from what others have done to them while exploring what forgiveness is, what it isn't, and how to deal with difficult relationships"-- Provided by publisher.
You deserve to stop suffering because of what other people have done to you. But you may be stuck in a cycle of unresolved pain, playing offenses over and over in your mind. TerKeurst has wrestled through this journey, but she has discovered how to let go of bound-up resentment and overcome the resistance to forgiving people who aren't willing to make things right. Here she shares therapeutic insight and Bible teaching to help you learn how to move on, disempower the triggers hijacking your emotions, and embrace the two necessary parts of forgiveness. -- adapted from jacket.
