Outstanding read! A must for anyone who has ever suffered a trauma, or simply struggles with the everyday challenges of living and learning to mentally release and let go of things they can't control, to include the hurtful, harmful, often unwitting behaviors of other people. Forgive them, for "they know not what they do", even though it may seem quite the opposite. Forgive yourself for not being whatever it is you got programmed from childhood to think "you weren't enough of" for this or that person, or got programmed to think others owe you or are "supposed to be" like in order to be acceptable in society. Letting go and loving yourself, accepting the gift of forgiveness for yourself, not because these others necessarily "deserve" forgiveness, but because YOU deserve it so you can reclaim your own well-being and peace of mind. I got a lot from this book. Working to apply the principles in it to my thought life.
