This prompt allows me to express something a very wise woman said to me when I returned from overseas in a rather broken state.
My husband had left me for another woman.
Of course I was mad, of course I was furious! In fact I felt I could kill him, I was so crazy with grief.
This wise woman said, ‘don’t let it eat you up! If you don’t forgive him, you will become bitter. This is something that can change your life for the worse. You are in charge; don’t let him get the better of you. Once you forgive him, you can let go of that anger. Then you can resume a positive attitude and you will get back on track. Everything will fall into place for you.’
And she was right!
