The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: The Heart of the Matter

Quote of the Day:

True forgiveness is when you can say, “Thank you for that experience.” ~Oprah

The Single Woman Says:

Love can be crazy, and unexplainable, and sometimes unforgiving in its relentless pursuit to grab hold of your heart and squeeze until you’re sure you can’t take one moment more of the exquisite pain; but at the end of the day, when the turmoil and the madness and the passion fades, and you’re left facing only the reflection of yourself in the mirror, when you get down to the Heart of the Matter, it really is all about forgiveness. Forgiving others for being careless with your heart…forgiving yourself for the mistakes you’ve made…forgiving the past for its unrelenting need to drag you into a future without the person who once stood by your side. It’s all about forgiveness, and the ability to let go of those that are no longer there. If they were meant to be there, they would be. And despite the blows to the pride and the blows to the heart and the very human need to shield yourself from even one second of pain…the pain reminds you that you’re real, and it reminds you that it’s time to move on, and it reminds you to let go of the something or the someone that no longer needs you. Their part in the story is through…the curtain has closed…the screen has faded to black…but when you look closer, you will see that underneath it all is a glimmer of hope, and love, and truth, and happiness…just waiting to be discovered. As much as they might have hurt you, they also helped you, by showing you how strong you REALLY are. Thank them. For changing you, strengthening you, showing you the way…even if they didn’t stay. Then move on to your new day.

    I wonder sometimes if I will ever heal. After 9 1/2 years with the man that I loved , and then to have him abruptly , without CONCIOUS, leave me for another woman, marry her and move to Houston. God , how can people be so convincing and yet at the same time be such a LIAR. Double life’s suck!

    I think at some point it gets to really resenting them for causing you so much pain, wasting your time and not appreciating all you put into your relationship. All in all, filling hate in your heart will only eat u up,slowly killing you at the end of the day. We should pray for God’s Grace to forgive them and move on. In the end they did us a huge favour anyway!
