7 Steps to Forgiving Yourself (or Anyone Else)

The co-founder of the Chopra Foundation and author of Spiritual Solutions: Answers to Life's Greatest Challenges shows us 7 steps we can take on the path to forgiveness.
1. Responsibility
Tell yourself you will no longer assign blame for the action.

2. Feeling
Recall what the incident felt like at the time. Feel it in your body.

3. Labeling
Put an emotion to that feeling. Was it anger? Fear? Sadness?

4. Expressing
Write down what happened in the incident in the first person, then write it down as the other person. Finally, write it down as an objective 3rd person.

5. Sharing
Look at the person next to you and share your story, or share it with someone you trust.

6. Releasing
Tear (or burn) up that paper.

7. Celebrating
Stand up and celebrate the release. Maybe do a little dance.
