GT, can you tell me about a time someone hurt you and how you forgave them? Like did you have to say your peace to them first? Did you just wake up one day and think, heh, they suck, I rock, let's move on? I need some thought process details.

This past week, several people came up in my life that I'd purposefully not thought about. The post about the kids who stopped communication with their mom brought up memories of my dad, who died 15 years ago. A close friend who said some horrible horrible things and then moved out of the country suddenly returned. And this abusive co-worker came back from sabbatical.

So hi, it's life, here's all your issues with forgiveness, all at once. I hate it when that happens.
