Have you ever held a grudge against someone to the point where it caused you emotional, or even physical anguish? Do you, at this moment, find it hard to forgive or just let go of the pain that someone you trusted once caused you? In this five-minute video, with UCLA psychiatrist Dr. Stephen Marmer, you can learn the three types of forgiveness (exoneration, forbearance, and release). Rather than adopting the somewhat simplistic adage, “Forgive and forget,” learn from a professional therapist how to deal with a particularly bitter type of pain–the one that comes when a person you trust, or even love, hurts you.

There are no fees, books, homework assignments, or grueling midterms here - just clear, life changing ideas from world-renowned thinkers. With short videos on political science, economics, history, religion and life, Prager University offers big ideas on big topics. Five minutes is all the time we need to communicate these important ideas. Just as a shot of espresso boosts your energy, a shot of Prager University boosts your brain. Because not only will you have more knowledge - you will have more clarity. If you're ready to grow intellectually, we're ready for you.

Interesting. Thanks for posting this. The "Release" form of forgiveness has been hard for me at times, but I think its essential. Without doing that release, it can be easy to let thoughts of a wrongdoer persecute you for years.

Good advice and something we all need at some point in our lives.
It would nice if the current crop of race baiters (Sharpton, Jackson, et al) would watch this. The probably wouldn't because of your surname. I forgive them.
