This is to parents, husbands, wives, children, exes, anyone who has messed up. There isn’t a person reading this that hasn’t made a mistake throughout the course of their life. If you feel you haven’t well just keep on living. But for those of us who have said something without thinking, or doing something on impulse and then realizing whoops! Even if it was methodically thought out, then the realization of the egregious errors. But no matter what the mistake or the intention, you have to apologize and make amends to the best of your ability. But if you don’t first forgive yourself, then you can’t truly receive forgiveness. There is only but so much you can say and do to rectify whatever the situation may be, but after beating yourself up of ways to say I’m sorry or for ways to reach out to show your contrition. There are only so many ways to say we were wrong, and you can’t make it right without empathy from the wronged or the circumstance that was later regretted ….whatever the case may be one way or another you must move on to a path that brings you a peace with yourself …without it how can you bring peace to anyone else. Some may say I’ll never forgive or I’ll never move on. If that’s the case let that person be. There is no way to make a determined unhappy person rationalize the validity of making amends to bring self-peace. To some this may be brash but I say it for those who may be carrying the load of guilt over whatever it may be. Be strong and realize that there are only so many ways to say we were wrong. Jesus said to the degree that you forgive is the degree to which you will be forgiven. Look in the mirror and decide which person you are and if your the unforgiver please release that person from the daily guilt and regret they walk with because you are holding their ability to move on. And if you’re the one holding on to not moving ahead because of someone holding whatever it is over your head, move ahead and get from underneath it. Romans 12:18 says “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men”. So sisters and brothers sometimes in order to have peace with some men…(or women) you have to live them be…as harsh as it may sound, your peace is just as important as theirs. THERE ARE ONLY SO MANY WAYS TO SAY I (WE)WERE WRONG
