I have so much trouble forgiving

somebody i needed very much and should have been loved by couldn’t love me and left me by the wayside. she hated me instead and i grew up so hurt by it.

i need to forgive her and go on with my life. i need to quit obsessing about it. it is hard for me.

my grandma loved me a whole lot and filled in for her.

still, i remember the pain and blame the brain damage on the hater.

i hope i can learn to forgive.

Dear Judy, a famous person once said “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” I know it is hard… but you accept that not being able to forgive is hurting you… you are almost there… accepting is part of the process of being able to forgive… it is okay to take your time to heal…
