Forgiveness: Don't Let Resentment Keep You Captive
By Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D.

Someone steps on your toe and apologizes; you forgive him. But what if someone steps on your ego? On your bank account? On your life?

Rabbi Dr. Abraham Twerski - beloved author, scholar, and psychiatrist - shows us how vitally important it is to sincerely forgive those who have hurt us.

Rage and resentment weigh us down; forgiveness lets us cast off those burdens and be the people we really want to be.

TODAY: Am Ready to Forgive. Now What?, Part II
