Description : We live in a culture of apology and forgiveness. But while there are a few thinkers who criticize forgiveness in favor of retribution, philosopher and intellectual Martha C. Nussbaum is unique in criticizing the supposed virtue from the other side: forgiveness, Nussbaum asserts, is at itsheart inquisitorial and disciplinary. In this book based on her 2014 Locke Lectures, Nussbaum hones in first on anger and then on forgiveness, so vigorously championed today as a replacement emotion. Arguing that anger includes not only the idea of a serious wrong but also the idea that it would be a good thing if the wrongdoer sufferedsome bad consequence, Nussbaum asserts that anger, so understood, is always normatively problematic in one or the other of two possible ways. One way makes the mistake of thinking that the suffering of the wrongdoer restores the thing that was damaged. The other requires the victim to see the injuryas about relative status and only about that. While anger is sometimes useful as a signal that things have gone wrong, as a motive to address them, and as a deterrent to wrongdoing, its core ideas are profoundly flawed: either incoherent in the first case, or normatively ugly in the second. Neitheris anger as useful as it is often taken to be.Nussbaum goes on to strip the notion of forgiveness down to its Judeo-Christian roots, where the primary moral relationship is that between an omniscient score-keeping God and erring, penitent mortals. The relationship between a wronged human and another is, she says, based on this primary God-humanrelationship. Nussbaum agrees with Nietzsche in seeing in Judeo-Christian forgiveness a displaced vindictiveness and a concealed resentment that are ungenerous and unhelpful in human relations. The process of forgiveness can bolster a narcissistic resentment better eschewed in favor of a newparadigm based on generosity, justice, and truth.

Description : 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.

Description : 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.

Description : This work explains the importance of forgiveness in mastering the difficult emotion of anger and how to use God's help in preventing anger from destroying one's health and happiness. Building on her signature message of using the mind to master difficult emotions, the author focuses on the most destructive, insidious one of all: anger. It is responsible for broken relationships, sleepless nights, high blood pressure and ulcers. It destroys friendships, marriages and families, not to mention peace of mind. Anger is especially hard to handle for many Christians who have learned from childhood that "good Christians don't get angry." She argues that properly handled, anger is an alert system that something is wrong and needs to be resolved. In this book, she delves into the important process of forgiving, explaining its positive impact on the roots, the forms and the results of anger. Why forgive? She explains that forgiving is the only thing that can free one from the terrible turmoil that anger causes to spill over into every part of life. She understands that life will never be fair, but that is not a reason to let anger destroy our well-being and health. This is her guide to navigating that thorny territory and finding true peace.

Description : In the first book of the Bible, every patriarch and many of the matriarchs become angry in significant ways. However, scholars have largely ignored how Genesis treats this emotion, particularly how Genesis functions as Torah by providing ethical instruction about handling this emotion's perplexities. In this important work, Schlimm fills this gap in scholarship, describing (1) the language surrounding anger in the Hebrew Bible, (2) the moral guidance that Genesis offers for engaging anger, and (3) the function of anger as a literary motif in Genesis. Genesis evidences two bookends, which expose readers to the opposite extremes of anger and its effects. In Gen 4:1-16, anger takes center stage when Cain kills his brother, Abel, although he has done nothing wrong. Fratricide is at one extreme of the spectrum of anger's results. In the final chapter of Genesis, readers encounter the opposite extreme, forgiveness. Here, Joseph and his brothers forgive one another after a long history of jealousy, anger, deception, and abuse. It is a moment of reconciliation offered just before the book closes, allowing readers to see Joseph as an anti-Cain--someone who has all the power and all the reasons to harm his brothers but instead turns away from anger and, despite the inherent difficulties, offers forgiveness. Although Genesis frames its post-Edenic narratives with two contrasting outcomes of anger--fratricide and forgiveness--it avoids simplistic moral platitudes, such as demanding that its readers respond to being angry with someone by forgiving the person. Genesis instead returns to the theme of anger on many occasions, presenting a multifaceted message about its ethical significance. The text is quite realistic about the difficulties that individuals face and the paradoxes presented by anger. Genesis presents this emotion as a force that naturally arises from one's moral sensitivities in response to the perception of wrongdoing. At the same time, the text presents anger as a great threat to the moral life. Genesis thus warns readers about the dangers of anger, but it never suggests that one can lead a life free from this emotion. Instead, it portrays many characters who are forced to deal with anger, presenting them with dilemmas that defy easy resolution. Genesis invites readers to imagine ways of alleviating anger, but it is painfully realistic about how difficult, threatening, and short-lived attempts at reconciliation may be.

Description : 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.
