Forgiveness Methods
Five steps for granting the gift of forgiveness (R. Klimes)
A. Acknowledge the anger and hurt caused by the clearly identied specic oenses.
B. Bar revenge and any thought of inicting harm as repayment or punishment to
the oender.
C. Consider the oender’s perspective. Try to understand his/her attitude and behaviour.
D. Decide to accept the hurt without unloading it on the oender. Passing it back and
forth magnies it.
E. Extend compassion and good will to the oender. That releases the oended from
the oense.
Four stages of forgiveness (Enright & Fitzgibbons)
1. Uncovering
Gaining insight into whether, and how, the injustice and subsequent injury have
compromised his or her life. Confronting anger and shame. Becoming aware of
potential emotional exhaustion. Becoming aware of cognitive preoccupation.
Confronting the possibility that the transgression could lead to permanent change
for them. Discovering how the transgression changed their view of the world.
2. Decision
Gaining an accurate understanding of what forgiveness is, and making a decision
to commit to forgiving on the basis of this understanding
3. Work
Gaining a deeper understanding of the oender and beginning to view the oender
in a new light (reframing), resulting in positive change in aect about the oender,
about the self, and about the relationship. Showing empathy and compassion.
Bearing the pain. Giving the moral gift of forgiveness.
4. Deepening
Finding meaning in the suering (post-suering growth). Consideration of times
when we have needed other’s forgiveness. Knowing that we’re not alone. Becoming
aware that forgiveness allows us to feel more connected with others and to experience
decreased negative emotion.

AFFECTION IN A MARRIAGE

Affection is one of the most important emotional needs to be fulfilled while in a relationship as significant as in a marriage. Not everyone knows how to give it and not all know how to receive it.
Affection is not always something that we are wise about but must learn it. Affection, in spite of not being able to give and receive it, is something we all need. Affection is learned and unfortunately, not all grow up in families where it is given spontaneously. When in a marriage some spouses have to learned how to demonstrate this important emotional need and it must learn by practicing it.
Below is a list that may be practiced by spouses. At first it may not feel real, but practice makes perfect. The simple exercise of practicing it and repeating it until it becomes more spontaneous is an effort to be respected and appreciated. For those that do not know how to receive, practice receiving with caring silence and enjoy.
1. Hug and kiss your spouse and tell them you love them every morning while you’re still in bed. Rub their back for a few minutes before you get up.
2. Tell them that you love them while you are having breakfast together.
3. Kiss them and tell them you love them before leaving for/to work.
4. Call them during the day to ask how they are doing and that you love them.
5. After work, call them before you leave to tell them when you will be home, and tell them you love them.
6. Buy her flowers on the way home occasionally, with a card that tells her you love her.
7. When you arrive home from work, give them a big hug and kiss and spend a few minutes talking to them about how their day went. Don’t do anything else before you have given them your undivided attention.
8. Tell love them that you love them as you are having dinner together.
9. Help clear off the table and wash and dry the dishes, giving them, a hug and kiss at least once, and tell them, that you love them.
10. Hug and kiss them and tell them you love them in bed before you both go to sleep.

These are only a few of the ways to express your affection. Time and repetition will help make it more spontaneous and real. Enjoy it, appreciate it and benefit from its gifts.
