For me it involved some writing and meditation but anyone can do this, it doesnt have to be a 12 step thing. I have written letters before and then burned them. I just do not believe in giving power to things I cant control-especially people in my life. If they are toxic I remove them from my life, if I have to deal with them I come to a place of peace and know that I did what I have to do and they are the ones responsible for their own feelings or behavior. I hope I do not sound preachy. I am not trying to sound like that.
I, too, have written letters to those I felt hurt by and sent some of them out. It was what I did and the way it was, not going to beat myself up for it. I ripped a lot of the letters up, too. I read one at someone's grave, too. I have made many amends and people still didn't forgive me. I guess that's a problem with them and not me. I am not an ax murderer as some of them acted like. I find it hard to deal with some people and do get away from them if I feel too uncomfortable with them.
