Putnam County Times Interview: 

What led to the writing of this book?
Great question! I began to look at particular resentments that I have been struggling with for decades, and I realized how much negative impact they still had upon my life. As much as I wanted relief, I couldn’t bring myself to let go of the hurt. I I was particularly struggling with forgiveness issues concerning my mother. So, I decided to explore this relationship from a broader lens, including what her perspective might have been concerning our struggles. This was the starting point that evolved into a book.

What is your background?
I have undergraduate and graduate degrees and calcium psychology, and I have worked as a counselor. I also have other certificates including life coaching.
Who would benefit from reading your book?
Anyone who is sick and tired of embracing the pain of chronic resentment will benefit from this book. They need to be ready, and understand that forgiveness is a choice for so feeling and personal growth. Forgiveness is for the forgive her, not for the person that they are forgiving. It is the highest form of self-respect and self-love. It is my hope that my readers can avoid some of the pitfalls that I experienced. If they follow the steps and explore the topics explained in my book, I believe that they can successfully release their own resentments.

Why is topic is important?
 I think that most of us struggle with forgiveness, and our misconceptions add to this struggle. We seem to think that if we forgive, then the offender has won. We need to expand our perceptions of forgiving. We don’t forgive for the offender’s benefit. We do so for self-healing.  When we insist upon embracing resentments, it erodes our ability to live our lives fully.
