3. Something you need to forgive yourself for.
Ok, now this is really infringing upon my comfort zone. I think these questions are getting more personal. Harder. I guess they are doing their job. Sigh. Here we go….
When I was going to marry my second husband, we made promises to each other. He promised to never leave me in the manner of my first husband, and I promised to help raise his three small children.
We both failed in our promises. For the sake of people’s privacy, I will not get into the ugly details. The whole thing messed me up pretty bad. It colored my life, my world pretty dark, for a very long time. I did not know if I would make it through to the other side, for a very long time. I did not CARE if I would make it through to the other side, for a very long time.
But I did. And I can see how circumstances caused certain things to happen that I need to forgive myself for. I would like to say that I learned something from the whole experience. And I did. But it wasn’t positive. It was negative, and very, very painful.
Therefore, I’m shaking myself internally and giving myself permission to forgive myself.
That’s all I really want to say on the subject.
