Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 29 People

    After Many Years...

    After maybe 5 years I've decided to forgive my Dad from cheating in that race we had in France. He cheated, and I should've won. He started running on the 'steady' instead of 'go'. I didn't notice he'd started until he passed me, so had to charge after him and he only just...

    My Dad

    I Forgive Him But He'll Never Know

    I went through a lot with my birth father, and while it wasn't as bad as other people have had it, it was bad enough for me to stop talking to him. He put myself and my mother through so much, and I hated him with every ounce of my being for the longest time. But now, I forgive...
