day 4 of 30 days of truth

Day 04 →? Something you have to forgive someone for

I'm pretty bad about holding grudges. However, since it's something i am aware, i am trying to work on it. There is one person that I need to forgive. It's been an ongoing process for a couple years now (I'm sad to admit) but for some reason i just have never fully let it go. I think because she was once my best friend is why it stung so badly, and also why I just couldn't let go. But it really is time to forgive and move on.... What happened is in the past. Now I'm just looking towards that forgiveness that erases all the pain. :)

I can understand you there girlie! I have a girl who was supposed to be one of my closest friends and she betrayed me, and I'm still working on forgiving her for it. Forgiveness is necessary, but hard to do sometimes. Good luck with it!

been there my friend and I were fighting for about five months. We have made up since then, but it was so hard to control my anger and I failed so many times. Forgiveness is something I had to do daily.

I can totally get where you are coming from on that. I'm horrible at holding grudges too. I've let a lot of them go in the past few years... but it's really hard when it's your best friend that does something... I'm one of those that if it's something little and stupid I try and just brush it off... but I have a feeling I've gotten to the point where I've brushed it off so much that the thing that she did to me recently really hurts... and I'm having a hard time getting past it. I know I have to do the right thing and just move on from it, but sometimes it really is hard.

ah i hear ya. I do try though but there are times I remember back to what happened and start disliking the person again....and I have to start all over one more time. It's an ongoing battle!
