    the first thing you need to do Is want forgiveness and be willing to forgive those who have hurt you as well this goes hand in hand then out loud or in your head use the lords prayer and believe you received as well as you gave the very same forgiveness and you can begin learning the word agape which means unconditional love at least this is what I understand the bible is the knowledge.
