Forgiving And Letting Go

Monday, June 24, 2013

Welp I didn't have to help my Dads girlfriend...someone else did...prob for the best..
bc i dont really speak to my Dad much... being around him hurts me more than helps and I've been happier.

It also made me realize how strong of a person I am. Not many people can forgive the person who abused them for 15yrs and allow them back into their life.... I did that...I gave him many chances because I loved him...he is my can you love someone who has hurt you...yet sometimes hate done trying tho because it just held me back....
My moms dying hurt so much but it finally freed me of my Dad...I never would have stopped coming around because I loved my Mom so much.

Thank God for saving me every single day.

Thank God for everything good and wonderful I have and even with the bad it made me into the wonderful person I am..

    emoticon Blessings to you on this journey. Each of us has our own path and I have deep respect for you as you walk yours. I am moved by your post and want to share with you some of my own path. I hope it is okay with you.

My journey includes deciding (every day) whether I will allows my abusers into my life and how much I will allow them to effect me. It is a daily decision for me. Forgiving my Dad and Mom have been the most important decisions of my life. I do it every day. It is a daily practice that helps me remember that I am no longer a victim. I am a survivor with choices. This brings me great freedom, joy, and peace. It also hurts like nothing else.

I am grateful to myself for forgiving them and by so doing freeing myself from the past. They are not part of my present or future, and I am not having to live my past over and over. Forgiveness has brought me so much freedom.

I wish you peace, joy, and freedom on your journey. It is a tough one. You have the power to make choices that are good for you. And, you deserve what is good for you!

    there are a multitude of women out there you can minister too that I can't, cause you understand what they have lived through, whereas I can only imagine. Good can come from any situation if you let it.

    I agree...and also stay away from (sever ties) with those in my life that bring me down.
