You deserve to stop suffering because of what other people have done to you.

Have you ever felt stuck in a cycle of unresolved pain, playing offenses over and over in your mind? You know you can't go on like this, but you don't know what to do next. Lysa TerKeurst has wrestled through this journey. But 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 right.

With deep empathy, therapeutic insight, and rich Bible teaching coming out of more than 1,000 hours of theological study, Lysa will help you:

- Learn how to move on when the other person refuses to change and never says they're sorry.
- Walk through a step-by-step process to free yourself from the hurt of your past and feel less offended today.
- Discover what the Bible really says about forgiveness and the peace that comes from living it out right now.
- Identify what's stealing trust and vulnerability from your relationships so you can believe there is still good ahead.
- Disempower the triggers hijacking your emotions by embracing the two necessary parts of forgiveness.

Look for additional biblically based resources and devotionals from Lysa:

- Good Boundaries and Goodbyes
- It's Not Supposed to Be This Way
- Uninvited
- You're Going to Make It
- Embraced
- Seeing Beautiful Again

Great practical, godly advice. Coming from a woman who has certainly had experience with great traumas, it carries true conviction.

It helped me realize I struggle with forgiveness in general

A beautifully written piece. This book has related to my pain on a level that I thought no one could. Scripture is repeated time and time again to allow for His words to sink in. There are some methods written about that truly helped me overcome some of my biggest traumas. I only wish I also had a hard copy to take notes.

Not horrible nor a waste of time but is repetitive and a bit redundant. As a man, I certainly can see why it's more appealing from a woman's perspective. That's not a bad thing, for the record. I feel that traumatic experiences are opinion-based to an extent, and I felt that some of the things in the book were almost surface-level/exaggerated. Either way, to each their own.
