Anger is not just ubiquitous, it is also popular. Many people think it is impossible to care sufficiently for justice without anger at injustice. Many believe that it is impossible for individuals to vindicate their own self-respect or to move beyond an injury without anger. To not feel anger in those cases would be considered suspect. Is this how we should think about anger, or is anger above all a disease, deforming both the personal and the political? In this wide-ranging book, Martha C. Nussbaum, one of our leading public intellectuals, argues that anger is conceptually confused and normatively pernicious. It assumes that the suffering of the wrongdoer restores the thing that was damaged, and it betrays an all-too-lively interest in relative status and humiliation. Studying anger in intimate relationships, casual daily interactions, the workplace, the criminal justice system, and movements for social transformation, Nussbaum shows that anger's core ideas are both infantile and harmful. Is forgiveness the best way of transcending anger? Nussbaum examines different conceptions of this much-sentimentalized notion, both in the Jewish and Christian traditions and in secular morality. Some forms of forgiveness are ethically promising, she claims, but others are subtle allies of retribution: those that exact a performance of contrition and abasement as a condition of waiving angry feelings. In general, she argues, a spirit of generosity (combined, in some cases, with a reliance on impartial welfare-oriented legal institutions) is the best way to respond to injury. Applied to the personal and the political realms, Nussbaum's profoundly insightful and erudite view of anger and forgiveness puts both in a startling new light.

This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to learn to forgive. Anger is a human emotion. It is strongly linked to rage, and all of us have experienced it in some form since we were children. We are taught as children that anger and rage are not OK, and so we learn very early on to hide our anger and our rage. Anger is also linked to fear. It is often a fear response that triggers an angry outburst, and is part of the fight or flight response. But fighting and retreating are actions that we take in response to an external threat. These actions are built into our system, and exist in order to preserve our life-they are a function of the part of our brain known as the limbic system. When the limbic system is triggered, we find we have acted before we have realized it consciously. On the other hand, fear and anger are responding to an internal thought or perception about a situation. Since these are an internal representation of what we see, we can usually do something about these types of reactions before they create a problem for us. Being hurt is part of life. Most people have pains and hurts and sometimes, we tend to be so overpowered by it we often swear we will never forgive the person who hurt us. The more we dwell on the pain and hurt, the longer it will not give us peace. It is only in forgiving that we can finally move on and free ourselves from the bondage of anxiety and anger - that is the magic of forgiveness. In fact, the magic of forgiveness will help us become free from hatred, anger and vengeance. You could have thoughts about revenge, and the longer the thought comes to our minds, the longer you will keep the feelings of resentment with you. And the longer we become attached to the feeling, the longer it will take us to be truly happy in life. Also, emotional baggage that we carry throughout life can prevent us from living our lives to the fullest. If you are one of those who have kept grudges throughout the years, you can learn a few steps in achieving your total happiness, and the first step is forgiveness. If you allow the negative feelings that come along with resentment to take over your life, you will eventually be swallowed up by negative energies that will eventually put your physical body at risk. Also, you're feeling of bitterness and your search for revenge can be carried towards your new relationships with others. Of course, it is hard to forgive someone especially if you were hurt deeply, but then you have to think of the great things that forgiveness can do for you. Although forgiveness may not be something that can happen overnight, it is important that you work on it and try to work on it little by little. Forgiveness is a process.

To BREAK the CYCLE. . . Love Yourself First Whenever asked, Katie Lizowski had always said, “Sure, I love myself.” In her naiveté she assumed that had made it so. But the challenge of loving herself was not that simple. To love herself required trust in the unknown, honoring her feelings in the face of intimidation, and surrendering her ego. And what had Katie done the better part of her life? Caved in to what she had really wanted to pursue and kept quiet about her true feelings and opinions. And why had she done that? It would keep the peace and make everyone happy. Or so she thought. But in its wake, she had built up colossal layers of anger and resentment. Now ask yourself this? Do you have goals you’ve dismissed because of fear of the unknown or from another’s intimidation? Do you have feelings and opinions about something no one else knows about but you? And those feelings and experiences get replayed over and over in your mind? Is your life stuck in neutral? Julia Thornbrough’s journey as seen through the eyes of Katherine Lizowski shows how she removed huge layers of anger and hurt not only from this lifetime but from beyond. And what kept her former husband and her returning for seven lifetimes? It was their inability to forgive. Every experience has molded who you are today. They’ve defined you and have shaped your reaction to life’s circumstances. What matters most is that your new life, the one you were to meant to live, can start now. If your life isn’t happy or you find yourself repeating the same relationships, why not shorten your learning curve? Read Julia’s story. Discover how forgiveness, combined with claiming your emotions, can take happiness from a dream to reality.
