The dictionary definition of the word ‘forgive’ is: [verb] stop feeling angry or resentful towards (someone) for an offence, flaw, or mistake.

Stop feeling. Interesting.

A feeling is an energy and energy can’t be stopped, it can merely be transformed.

For many years I believed I needed to forgive my abuser to move on. I felt bad because I couldn’t forgive him. I felt worse because I didn’t want to forgive him. I felt bad because everything I read said I should forgive him to free myself up.

Was I dooming myself to a life of pain because I had no idea how to forgive?

If you try and contain an energy it causes damage. It builds up to something bigger and bigger, pushing at the edges of its container. If it remains inside of you it becomes toxic and damaging.

    …Yo’ Dawn…Some trespasses are so deeply personal that it can break a heart. I don’t think the trespasser can get forgiveness, here on earth, any more than a cold blooded killer can. In some ways, a broken heart, is worse than getting killed. These kinds of predators will be confronted by their innocent victims, face to face…before this is all over.
