    For Whatever Happened

    To whom this specifically concerns, I know you go on this website to read stories I've written. You say it's because you missed me, my writing, and want to feel connected. There is a lot of misunderstanding when the connection can be made in more direct ways? I would...

    Please someone tell me how to forgive my ex.

    I suddenly remembered months ago: My ex asked me to make him some egg omelette in pita bread- my new invention, like a wrap switch, easy to eat at work. He wants me to make it for his breakfast to bring to work. I was making them every morning for a week or so, even though I got...

    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...

    I Forgive You.....

    Isn't love and life about forgiveness at times? Sometimes in our lives we are often hurt by the ones we love and we hurt the ones we love in return. As I bask in balmy breezes and 100 degree heat on vacation I have reflected on forgiveness and being able to do this 100% with no...

    Forgiveness

    What does this word mean? To forgive...or to forget?? Which is it? To truly forgive invokes haughty ideals of letting go of past cruelties done to you...ok, I can see where that might be healthy to do. To forgive may mean to spiritually uplift your ideals and perameters to be a...

    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...
