Many of my graduates have found that "the letter" is the key to putting a bad relationship behind them forever. This is a powerful technique that can free you from feelings of anger and resentment almost instantly.
Here is how it works:You to sit down and write the other person a letter of forgiveness. It consists of three parts.
First you say, "I forgive you for everything you ever did that hurt me."
Second, you write out a description or list of every single thing that you are still angry about. Some people write several pages in this part.
Third, you end the letter with the words, "I wish you well."
You then take the letter to the mailbox and drop it in. At that moment, you will feel a huge sense of relief, and you will be free at last.
By the way, don't worry about how the other person might react. That is not your concern.Your goal is to free yourself, to regain your peace of mind, and to get on with the wonderful life that lies ahead of you.
