Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
Have you ever been so disappointed in someone that it makes you wonder if you ever really knew them? Yesterday I found out that someone close to me did something unthinkable. It is so awful that I don't even want to think about it or say it out loud. Unfortunately, I don't know exactly who it was so now I will forever be suspicious. The only way to move past it is to forgive but it's hard because I gave the person an opportunity to redeem themselves anonymously and they did not. All I know is that someone I love and would do anything for, is dishonest and selfish. I can not tell you how much my heart breaks just thinking about this.
I believe that everything that happens in our life gives us the opportunity to become a better, stronger person. We always have a choice between right and wrong. We also always have the choice to right a wrong choice. I feel disappointed that someone closest to me has not taken advantage of difficult times and learned some valuable lessons. I feel disappointed that they are not the person that I know they are capable of being. My only hope is that on their journey through life, they become the person I always knew they would be.
