What has been the most difficult thing you have had to forgive?
I have been told the reasoning behind my mothers action when I was a child. Understanding and forgiving is very hard.
If some of my readers are unaware, I was born and raised by my mother as a single parent in till I was 7 years old. At which point circumstances changed in her life and she was unable to care for both my brother and I. We were sent to my fathers. Of course going to my father was the best thing for us at the time.
Perhaps deep down I had hoped one day my mother would have asked/wanted us back once she was back on her feet. That time never came. She moved on with her life, remarried, relocated and was happy in her job. Having children didn’t fit in the picture.
I missed out on that mother daughter relationship so many women talk about, the cooking, the shopping, the hair and nail, the girly chats. It was either rare or didn’t happen at all. I missed the support of a mother while going through my teens.
Over the years I have learnt to forgive but I will never forget.
Was there ever a difficult situation you’ve had to forgive?
