RE: Reframing your mind to battle depression and CBT
kbell, here is something you might find useful. Don't think of "forgiving" as some active new thing that you have to do, or a new state you have to enter; instead, think about letting go of the grudges from the past that are still in your mind. Just reflect about these grudges, realize that they are useless to you, and let them go.

It's not easy to have something new like forgiveness come into your life on demand; it's something that can just happen one day, like a state of grace, but you can't exactly will it. But what you can always do is to look at things that are already in your mind -- like old grudges from the past -- and just let them go. It's like a cleanup of your brain where you are deleting bad old files that are clogging up memory and slowing the whole operation down. Let them depart and leave behind a blankness into which other things can enter over time.

same old shit, sixes and sevens Shaft...
