While each of us must do the work of the Forgiveness Challenge for ourselves, we don't have to do it by ourselves. We are in this together, and the purpose of this Forum is to remind us of that, and to lean on one another a bit. The more you participate in the Forum the easier this will be for you. Participation doesn't mean you have to write every day or even at all. You may gain a lot of support by simply reading what others are writing. Of course if no one writes . . . But I don't anticipate that. I just know that some of us are not drawn to sharing, and that's fine. Give what you can and take what you need.
To get started you might want to share with us your intention for the Challenge—not simply to complete it, but what you are hoping to get out of completing it. And along the same lines, what obstacles you anticipate running into.
In addition, I’m asking that if you do post to the Forum, you remain respectful of the rest of us. The only guideline I offer is this: Don't fix anyone. You may read something that someone wrote and you are convinced you can fix them if they would just follow your advice. Pass on that. Share your story: what you were like, what you did, and what you are like now, but don't take on the role of pastor or psychotherapist. OK. Let's get started!
