Do you find it hard to forgive? If your answer is yes, then you are not alone…
At a very young age I have learned resentment. After I was molested at nine years old, not by one but two relatives, I stopped to be a normal child. I had a lot of hate inside me. I was bitter because no one was able to protect me. I hated my father for being an irresponsible and absent father. I kept the bitterness inside me for almost all my life and because of this, forgiving other people is something I always struggle with.
But what if sadness has already taken control of our lives? I don’t have all the answers, but I believe that we always have a choice to dwell in sadness or do something about it. It might not happen overnight, we might struggle, we might be exhausted and we might want to give up but it’s better than not to do anything. Do we really want to change our situation or are we already comfortable with being sad? Have you honestly tried your best to change how you think? Yes, other people wouldn’t exactly know what you are going through but the truth is, we only live once and how we live our lives is our sole responsibility.
