    It has taken me some time to forgive, but I see no point in not. For years I noticed that I was hurting myself by not forgiving. I can't say that it has brought me complete inner peace but I'm slowly getting there.

    But Not All

    There are some people who have hut me that I have a hard time forgiving. Mostly because they refuse to change. How can someone be in therapy for so long and make no progress? I try, but I am frustrated by it.

    He Was My Closest Friend...

    And things got crazy...we fought all the time. He was exceptionally hurtful, in both thought and deed. Never have a felt so demoralized, dehumanized as a person, and a person of worth. We don't talk at all, but I've forgiven him, and I hope on some level he can forgive me...
