Forgiveness: Letting Go

Dr. Stephen Muse is back on the show to continue the conversation about forgiveness that we started this past December. He speaks with Fr. Chris today about the role of acceptance in forgiveness. Stephen is a pastoral counselor and marriage and family therapist who works with combat veterans and their spouses, persons suffering from abuse, and also with clergy and their families.

Questions include:

* Do you think there comes a point when we have to just stop thinking about something and force ourselves move on?
* How can the idea of “live and let live” free us up to get back to our own lives instead of staying locked up in our anger and hurt?
*How can we be responsible about taking ownership for our part in a hurt?
* What are some tips we can use to try to check in with ourselves when we first feel anger creeping up so that we can stop a situation from spiraling?
