I’ve been this woman. How many of us are out there and in denial? Ladies, let go of the bitterness and love on yourself. Forgiveness is a powerful thing, and while I know it’s a hard pill to swallow, know that our child’s(ren) Father is deeply stricken with pain; whether he admits it or not. Be the one to show him what forgiveness and healing look like. Perhaps, he hasn’t had that example before him.
Take a look at this powerful piece with Iyanla Vanzant, as she talks to a father of 28 children. It goes without saying, he’s been irresponsible in a major way. His irresponsibility has greatly impacted the lives of several women and children, but also his. His acts cannot be undone, so where does he go from here in repairing that damage? Can he repair it? What role does mom, or in this case moms, play in this?
Sister, I love you and you are forgiven. Your decision to love was not in vain. You are a jewele, no matter what anyone else tells you. Love on yourself, today and be the difference between bitterness and forgiveness.
