Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.

I need to forgive Tim.   I need to forgive him for the past.  For something that I always looked at as a choice, but in reality it was out of his control.   I need to forgive him for not getting help sooner and for not always following the advice of others that had more experience and time, which led him back to his lowest point, many times over.

I know I need to forgive him and I want the past to be in the past, but the past is still fresh.  It’s scary to think where he is now could be gone in an instant.  I have a hard time letting my guard down, so that I can enjoy the now.  I’m working on forgiveness though because it’s important to both of us.

    I struggle with this with my dad…the addiction and the whole choice aspect. I think initially it WAS a choice to get started in all that. But after that? I think it was out of their control. So I struggle a lot because I wonder why he chose to even be involved in something that could lead to horrible paths but then I know all the really bad stuff was also hard on him. YOu’re at least on the right path to forgiving him. xo
