Prayers by D. White
Cup Half Full: Molested as a Minor
To think that forgiveness is easy to give is
unreal. To think that forgiveness helps me so much is mixed. During trials
the victim always suffers more than the accused. But the accused suffers
if the victim wins. Forgiveness is not a one two punch of, I forgive; now
hurt me again, because I am a doormat. Forgiveness is the understanding
that the abuser is acting out the abuse he/she experienced somehow.
Forgiveness is being on guard, and saying what you did is not about me,
but about you, and you have to deal with that. You have to deal with hurt,
and pain, because I refuse to accept it again. I refuse to allow it again.
This may have happened to you, but you do not have to pass it on. You can
stop the pain, just like I can stop the pain. Why continue something that
is not good? God, we learn so much from your forgiveness.
Hope You were encouraged.
Please come back anytime.
