The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong – Gandhi
I see that the weather today was much nicer at Maple Lake than it was here in the Chicagoland area. That is always nice to see.
I’m still working on forgiveness (see above). I read recently that if you love someone, you can forgive them. Not sure if that is entirely true. I find myself thinking, Why? Why would I forgive them? The answer is, for me. For me to stop running over in my mind the events that transpired. I’m inclined to just let the pain run its course. Life is too short to dick around with people that I’m not sure ever really did love me and I’m pretty sure give no f@cks about me now.
I never, never, never thought I’d be estranged like this. I used to say I couldn’t understand how that could happen. Now I do. I can see when someone lacks a moral center, that there’s no way for me to connect with them. There’s just nothing there. And as sad as it is, facts is facts.
When I left my abusive husband when I was age 25, I felt no remorse. I never missed him.
Going to continue to try to follow Gandhi’s advice. To honestly say, they cannot hurt me because I have no connection with them. It is a step in the direction of letting go of the pain which is the only way any semblance of forgiveness may be attained.
Update: Done and done. One reconciliation initiated by me and welcomed by the other party.
One toxic person gone forever from my life. I feel so much better on both fronts.
It is such a waste of time to dwell on things you can’t control. Letting go means letting in the good stuff.
