An Additive Impact of Relationship between Gratitude and Forgiveness: A Review
The present paper is an attempt to study gratitude and forgiveness in unison in order to better understand their conceptual links and to confirm the query that how might combining two or more strengths produce additive effects in the pursuit of well-being and happiness in one’s life. Most importantly, the population for whom a strengths-based approach seems particularly invaluable is adolescents, who are at a critical development stage of making key choices about their future. Hence, identifying gratitude and forgiveness as a complete ‘package’ during this stage of life will equip adolescents with both intrapersonal and interpersonal resources which would aid at facilitating adaptive negotiations of the complex adult world.
