my parents recently divorced. i'm 14, and im old enough to understand their divorce was not about me or my sister. however, he has been abusive both physically and emotionally to me and my mother for as long as i can remember... i even called the cops on him once. he lives a few minutes away now in an apartment, but i havent gone to visit him at all since the divorce 2 weeks ago. i hope i can find it in my heart to forgive him like my sister has, but its so hard.

Forgiveness is a trait everyone needs because its what holds the country's of the world together. People should always learn to forgive and forget, because forgiveness allows you to move on to better things to greater dreams and stronger relationships.
Lila , Curtis MI usa

Your life experience IS what it IS and ISN'T what it ISN'T - so don't make your life experience what it ISN'T...ie...don't turn your life experience into marvelous dramas or into horror stories. EMBRACE life - LOVE it - LIVE it! (forgive and forget what you can't) You'll be surprised what a difference it makes!

When defenses come down, we are able to relate more authentically with our fellow human beings. Out of this type of relating comes joy, love and peace.
