365 Writing Prompts: Forgive and forget
Share a story where it was difficult to forgive the perpetrator for wrongdoing you, but did it— you forgave them.
This is one of those prompts where I have to admit I did not and cannot forgive the perpetrator. It left a lasting impression in my heart.
When you sincerely help someone and find out she’s been lying about you to anyone who’d listen, it’s very difficult or impossible to forgive them.
This is what happened in my case, let me use as much detail as I can possibly write. They “say blood is thicker than water,”
It is not true in my case, I had this person in my home for a number of years, when I went to work she took advantage by making collect calls to my other relatives, she complained I was starving her, making her work like a maid, she did not hesitate to write to my mother as well.
The sad part is everyone believed her including my mother. No one asked me if I was really treating her this way.
I knew she was unhappy I wanted to send her back home, my husband did not agree. There were a lot more things she did I do not want to write everything, I’m happy I won’t see her again, but forgiveness is out of question!
