Dr. Friedman emphasizes in The Forgiveness Solution that at the root of almost all emotional problems (depression, anxiety, guilt, anger, sadness, rage) is unforgiveness (grievances, judgments and attack thoughts)-- towards others, ourselves, our circumstances, God, anyone or everyone.
The Forgiveness Solution offers a process whereby we are released from these feelings - and not just the thoughts that go with them - by:
· giving up the beliefs that generate these emotions
shifting our perceptions and learning to see things differently
genuinely choosing and deciding to forgive
developing positive, compassionate feelings toward the person or circumstance that we previously perceived as hurtful
finding within us the capacity to feel an authentic sense of peace and contentment when thinking about the person or situation we previously perceived as hurting or harming us
giving up the desire for retribution, punishment or harm
interpreting - and then realizing - these experiences as opportunities for profound personal and spiritual growth

Dr. Friedman writes in the Introduction, "Don?t be daunted by the long list! My point is that the process of forgiveness is a profound one. It isn?t something one dimensional, with a simple beginning and end. It is a thorough examination and repositioning of oneself that leads to lasting feelings of peace, love and joy and a sense of inner balance and calm."
