    I was asleep when you took advantage of me, changing my views on myself.
    I resent you for stealing my confidence, young fun years, and for treating me like your property.
    I forgive you, as I know you had your demons. I forgive you, as now I see you were deeply mentally ill. You were not born abusive, something changed you. I hope you find yourself.
    I don’t blame you I turned to alcohol for coping.
    I don’t even blame myself anymore.
    I am working towards clarity, peace, and the light within.
    I found love. In another and myself. I will rise again.

    I too wrote a letter to my ex. Writing this letter made me address many things that were toxic in the relationship, things I buried with alcohol. It also brought up feelings of guilt, shame with myself – how could someone who is (allegedly) intelligent allow themselves to be treated in this way? I think forgiving is going to take some time. I’ve been reading about co-dependency and I think some of the suggestions in there will stop me making the same mistakes again, take responsibility whilst not completely blaming myself. Hopefully then I can forgive and move on.

    Forgiveness is a favor you do for yourself. Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself. Forgiveness frees you. Forgiveness is not something you are doing for your ex. It is a way to stop letting your ex continue to take up space in your mind…..without paying rent. At least, that’s what I am learning from thos current journey.
