30 Days of Truth


Day 4. Something you have to forgive someone for

I have two things I have to forgive. The first is the most difficult. I have to forgive my ex- husband for the way he handled our divorce. It was unbelievably traumatic and 8 years later I am still not over it and still trying to forgive him. But he was such a bastard about it that it is terribly difficult to forgive him. I know it it important to forgive for yourself, so you don’t hang onto the poison grudges cause. So I am working on forgiving him.

The other thing is forgiving my daughter for throwing me out of her house last year after I had house-sat for her and her dog bit me and I got a terrible infection. All anyone cared about was the dog in quarantine. No body cared that I had been sick from the bite and had taken care of their house. This one is easier to put behind me, because I understand she was upset about the dog. But to throw your mother out of your house after she has done you a favor…

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

  1. Divorces are so hard, for anyone to go through. I’m sorry about your daughter, maybe one day you can forgive her and get things back together. Family should be there no matter what. Thinking about you, and sending positive thoughts your way.

    At least you’re on the road to mental wellness, young lady! Let the healing continue.
