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.

Jared Sichel is the VP of Communications for Prager University and a journalist. He has written dozens of news stories, investigative reports, and feature pieces for the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles, the PA Independent, and Watchdog.org. Raised in North Potomac, MD, a sleepy suburb 30 minutes outside Washington D.C., Jared attended Tulane University in New Orleans, LA, and received in 2012 a masters degree in accounting and a bachelors degree in finance. In 2011, he interned for Dennis Prager's radio show in Glendale, CA, an experience that told him that media and journalism were a better fit than accounting. He lives in Los Angeles, CA with his baseball glove, football, fountain pens, and most importantly, cigars. If you say anything bad about the New York Yankees, New York Giants, Downton Abbey, or The Americans (both the FX show and the people), Jared will write mean things about 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.
