◆Forgiveness, the Bridge to Happiness is a self-help book for people who have been deeply hurt by another and caught in a vortex of resentment, depression, and anger. ◆
As a creator of the first scientifically proven forgiveness program in the country, Lauren Terrence shows how forgiveness can reduce anxiety and depression while increasing self-esteem and hopefulness toward one’s future.
Have you ever felt stuck in a cycle of unresolved pain, playing offences over and over in your mind? You know you can’t go on like this, but you don’t know what to do next.
This groundbreaking work demonstrates how forgiveness, approached correctly, benefits the forgiver far more than the forgiven. Filled with wisdom and warm encouragement, the book leads the reader on a path that will bring clarity and peace.
Because of what other people have done to you, and you deserve to stop suffering.✓
Terrence is careful to distinguish forgiveness from “pseudo forgiveness” and to reassure readers that forgiveness does not mean accepting continued abuse or even reconciling with the offender. Rather, by giving the gift of forgiveness, readers are encouraged to let and confront go of their pain in order to regain their lives.
Lauren Terrence has wrestled through this journey. In surprising ways, she’s discovered how to let go of bound-up resentment and overcome the resistance to forgiving people who aren’t willing to make things.
