Learning how to forgive is an important step to relieving burdens that have been brought on by other people. Elisha Goldstein's article on Mindful.org talks about how another persons pain, ignorance, or confusion can be the cause of these burdens. She also points out that the best thing about forgiveness is that it only takes one person, you! It can be difficult to know how to forgive. Elisha suggests to think about the situation that has caused your resentment. while you are immersed in the emotions that that situation caused, observe your emotions and how you feel physically.
