Forgiveness is a gift I give myself. It evicts the person/event from the space they are taking up in my head/heart/soul. But, it is hard to forget. Life is full of constant reminders, often when I least expect or want them. It is almost as if I am cleaning out the space to get ready to fill it with something else. As I move that in… I come across a lost item that the previous tenant left behind. Or I get a postcard or letter in the mail that somehow escaped the ‘address change’ process. Then, my forgiveness process has to start all over again. I honestly dont think it will ever end. But life goes on. I get stronger. I learn new skills. And I don’t give up.
