    I Need to Forgive My Ex For Wrongs to My Son

    To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.  Lewis B. Smeades Today as I read this, I knew that this meant that it was time to let go of my anger and resentment in this issue.  It has served its purpose - I have addressed the wrongs of...

    Letting Go of Sasha

    Before my husband was my husband he was my best friend. We did everything together, but not in that clingy- can't breathe if we are apart-sort of way. Just two people who like each other a lot spending time together. I made no attempt to hide the fact that I was madly in love...

    Needing To Let Go Of The Past Already

    I've wasted a lot of time being obsessed about my man's ex girlfriend. I met him years ago and we had a few dates, and then he got back together with her. I was not heartbroken because we only had a short time together and I wasn't over my ex either. So it was pretty mutual. Then...

    Will I Be Able To?

    There are a few people I need to forgive. Each will be very difficult in their own way. Each one has abused me to different degrees and in different ways. I don't know that I hate any of them. Hate is such a strong word and emotion. Is it hate when the mere mention of one person...

    I just can't bring myself completely to forgive them. I mean, in the end who was hurt? Me. Who got lied to? Me. Who believed every word you said? Me. I'm paying the price now.... I can't believe I let myself fall into the trap. But the point is, you don't seem to care. You don...
