Truth be told, delivering or confessing shortcomings to loved ones may end up hurting or destroying relationships. Decide your actions using caution. Always use kindness and love, especially towards yourself. ❤
Been hostage long enough.
Guilty as charged.
Exhausted from holding onto it.
Self-sentenced internal punishment served.
Time to forgive myself.
Time to love myself.
Time to let it go.
I accept my gift of self-forgiveness.
Thank you very much.
The months of August to January were a whirlwind of life events. First time meet-ups, new friendships, impending divorce, holidays, then marriage reconciliation. A new discovery of feelings and self-love had risen within me. Courage and strength surfaced and peaked to their highest levels. A voice that was once suppressed is now clearly heard loud and proud. I’m falling in love again and on a daily basis. It’s only the beginning of my new life. Good things happen each day, and still, the best is yet to come.

Concealed emotions once supressed now accepted
Twenty years of silent suffering finally surfaced
A blow to the ego was never intended
Understanding and sincere apologies appreciated
Forgiveness, yes. Admittedly, this cannot be fixed
Want to give me the world you took from me
Gifts a-plenty and kind gestures galore
Too much to bare and too late to serve their purpose
Humbled by realization of past mistakes
Eager to acknowledge and validate
Ownership of blinded hurtfulness
Years of devoted loyalty wasted
Love enough to let go
Thank you for the goodbye
Time for my new hello
My eyes were open, but may as well have been squeezed closed tight. You appeared, and my eyes came into focus once again. The connection had always been there, but I had been blinded with distraction. Believe it or not, our paths have crossed in the past, but not to this extent. Naturally orchestrated, all was meant to be. Adoring pain, guilty as charged. Graciously, your affection, kindness, patience and understanding are admirably expressed. Although our paths may never cross again, I am eternally grateful, for my soul has been saved, and you don’t even realize it. With my complete sincerity, thank you.
“I’ve read that dreaming of your own death may be interpreted as facing the end of something – career, marriage, or other life-altering change. Also, symbolizing a new chapter in life.” – Excerpt from my post published July 31, 2015, Peaceful Serenity.
