To say I was devastated is putting it mildly. It took five years to open my soul to someone, to lay it on the line. And what happened is how I was rewarded for trusting again. Trusting the wrong person.
I know that Karma is a bitch, and I know his day and that of the Skanky female will come. I came across info that would ease Karma along, even delighted in the wickedness of planning, nothing huge or major, but enough to cause a little bit of grief, small potatoes compared to what I have endured. Let them squirm and hurt, thought I.
And so we have Christmas, a time of joy, happiness and peace. Quite a while ago, I had sent a note to him saying I had forgiven him. But was I truly living the forgiveness in my heart? I think by now, you know the answer.
Now, today, I make the final peace in my heart, the peace that God and Jesus have gifted to me. I have no doubt that someday they will get theirs, because as ye sow, so shall ye reap. And I want to reap kindness, love and joy. I want peace, harmony and tranquility. By wishing ill upon others, no matter how much they deserve it, I will only keep the thorns in my side and in my soul.
And so my challenge to you on this glorious Christmas Day, the day when hope was born, is to forgive someone who has hurt you. If even from afar, love that soul, and wish that soul peace. No one says you have to be with them, talk to them or even think much about them. But embrace the peace and joy of the season by letting forgiveness fill your heart. It is the best Christmas present you could ever give yourself.
A truly blessed and peaceful Christmas to all.
