30 Days of Truth: Day 4

Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.

Forgiveness. I don't think that I carry unforgiveness around. I try to let things go for the most part, although I have carried a few things around through my life. They haven't been the ugly stuff that makes you have a hardened heart, but maybe the more average things that you tend to remember. Remember without fondness.

There is one person though that I should forgive. The problem is that it is not my situation to forgive. I wasn't there when the events in question happened. I harbor these bad feelings without first-hand knowledge, and that isn't fair. It is hard, though, when that person hurt people that I love.

Essentially, it's not mine to forgive, yet I still should forgive.

I really enjoy reading these 30 days of truth blogs--I'm so glad you're participating.

I too have one person I need to forgive for possibly very similar reasons as yours. But actually doing so...sheesh! I find it difficult when the repercussions of this person's past actions keep popping up into my everyday living.

Have the people who were hurt given their forgiveness to this person? If they are holding onto the hurt then the hurt they suffered is still hurting you. That is a hard one. ((HUGS))

I've been in a very similar situation. xo

I'm writing a paper on forgiveness right now.

Don't ask why I am just now doing it at 12:30 AM.

I'm in college - isn't this what I'm "supposed" to do? I figure, I can't drink, smoke, or sleep around, I might as well stay up late writing papers on the importance of forgiveness in deep level healing.

You raised me to be SUCH a party animal.
Ok - I'm done procrastinating now. Thanks for the break :)
