How do you let go of bitterness when you have been hurt badly by somebody?
I don’t always feel that way but sometimes it sneaks up on me and I end up feeling that hurt and bitterness again?
He was my husband. And then one day he wasn’t. And the person that I trusted to look after my children who was also a good and trusted friend, the very next day was his girlfriend. I was pushed out. How do I ever fully get over that?
It’s also tough whenever I’m in the house that was my home for 13 years, I see so many changes. Slowly I’m being erased from that house. He’s starting a new life.
I am starting a new life too but I suppose I’m not entirely used to it yet. I struggle when I’m not having the kids. I try to cram as much in as possible so I’m not sitting around navel-gazing. But then bedtime comes and no matter how tired I am, my mind always comes back to sadness – wondering if things could have been different, remembering all the things that have happened in the last year, feeling lonely, feeling hurt. My mind just won’t seem to leave it alone when I’m in bed.
Have you been hurt badly? How do you move forward without being consumed by sadness, bitterness and the like?
