Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014 Focus: I choose to let go of cynical attitudes and beliefs.

nice1
To break out of patterns of cynicism we need to look at the underlying causes within ourselves. By forgiving those we feel hurt by and becoming reconciled between our need to create good and the fear which blocks us from going ahead, we can then switch our focus from cynical thoughts and responses to life-enhancing ones.

We can learn to trust that there is a basic goodness in people; yet, still make wise provisions for dealing with those who might not live up to it. We can like people, yet still insist on having clear contracts with anyone we do business with. We can trust our life partner; yet still want clear agreements that underpin that trust. We may sometimes be let down, but we learn, make adjustments and move on without getting bitter about it.

Letting go of cynical attitudes and beliefs gives us a chance to see the goodness in others and the goodness in life. It also gives others a chance to see the goodness in us and to help us express it.

In this manual on how to forgive, there are insights and exercises without a preachy message or assumption that people “should” forgive. With chapters that explain what forgiveness is and how to deal with obstacles to it, it also addresses reconciliation with others and one’s own self. Practical and accessible, the book does not require religious practice or philosophy; it simply shows how to forgive in order to enhance self-esteem, be happier, and break free from limitations that can hold a person back.
