review Moving Forward Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB summary ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Everett L. Worthington Jr. summary Moving Forward “I can never forgive myself” she said “Every time I think about it I get sick to my stomach” I knew that feeling I had felt it due to my own failures and shortcomings I also knew I could help her because I know that sometimes the hardest person to forgive is yourself The partial truth about us is hard to accept We hurt those we love We fail to step in when others need us most We do wrong and we need forgiveness From others and from God but also from ourselves But the full t A great read for anyone who suffers from the crippling shame and guilt of their faults and mistakes that prevents them from moving forward The author specializes in psychological research on self forgiveness and self acceptance which he includes in the book He also includes his testimony on dealing with shame after the death of his brother There is a lot of heavy and complex ideas discussed in this book but he makes his 6 steps to self forgiveness very simple and understandable to anyone This book has a spiritual aspect but since I am a Christian I find that it makes it an even complete approach to self forgiveness It s hard to find good self help books within the Christian market because they only use the Bible as the guide I don t have a problem with the Bible it s just that when discussing psychological issues it s best to have a psychologist or research included in these conversations I have been looking for practical steps to forgive others and forgive myself This book was an answer to my prayers after I randomly picked it up at my local library I recommend you read it if you have been struggling with guilt shame self forgiveness and self acceptance
