My T want me to work on my inability to forgive myself for my CSA and also not being able to forgive myself for my acting out because of my CSA.

I am great at blaming myself for everything that I did and did not due in the past. I know it has also shattered my self-esteem and my feelings of guilt.

If anyone has any good books or articles on FORGIVENESS and SELF FORGIVENESS, I would welcome your comments.

Thanks,

Ken

Hey Buddy.

I don't have any good titles on forgiveness, but I have been working from a book called Feeling Good - it has given me some clarity on some of my negative self-talk and given me some strategies to help deal with it. The author is David Burns. It has some good exercises in it.

Hope you are well.

Dan

Guys,

I did get some help on chat yesterday. A book called Forgive For Good, by Frederic Luskin was suggested. I found it on Amazon this morning.

Sounds like it may be of help to me. Guess I am the only survivor with forgiveness issues.

Ken
