Forgiveness is a necessary step in healing. Why? A stroke is a tremendous blow to the body. To heal, the body needs to muster all of its resources--an impossible task when some of those resources are tied up in the stress of unresolved angst from past injustice and hurts. Towards this end I read that one physician wished that he could write a prescription for a forgiveness pill. As far as I know, there are no such pills now.but there are strategies to promote forgiveness and I will address these in future posts to this blog.
