“Time present and time past/ Are both perhaps present in time future/ And time future contained in time past./ If all time is eternally present/ All time is unredeemable.” Four Quartets, T.S. Elliot
PLEASE FORGIVE ME.
I LOVE YOU.
The process of forgiveness is never straightforward. It took me an entire year to process a loss that I initiated. I think forgiveness comes once we integrate – when we realize our errors in addition to that of others. I never rushed myself nor gave myself a forgiveness timeline. I held on to anger, resentment, and self-righteousness for as long as I needed. With a little help from a beautiful external source, I was able to receive the little push that I needed to complete this healing cycle.
