Repeated Damage

You know who you are.

I try to forgive everything you have done to me over the years and it just doesn't happen. Every time I think I'm on my way to forgiving you, you do something else to open old wounds, and I start to loathe and distrust you all over again. I hate not being able to forgive you because that makes me a hypocrite and it prevents me from inner peace. But aside from doing the impossible (cutting you out of my life), I have no idea how to fix this.

Sometimes I rue the day I was born because of you. And I can never tell you these things.

^ It is about my mother, and yes, I do like that quote.

I have a quote that you may like to see. It goes against this group, but it's a good one. By the way, I know the hurt that you're feeling, assuming that it's about your parent(s).<br />

^ That's the worst part about being wronged- not knowing how to forgive and having it put a damper on your inner peace. Thank you for the comment!
