I truly believe: God doesn’t give you the people you want, he gives you the people you need. to help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you and to make you the person you were meant to be.
You don’t need the cooperation of those who have wronged you. Heck, they don’t even have to be sorry or admit the error of their ways. Forgiveness doesn’t excuse their behavior. Forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart. It’s time to rise above these cruel emotions. This is for you, Shane.
Don’t lie hostage to your past circumstances. Rise above them. For pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
May’s Happiness Goal is not as easily measurable as April’s to Relax, but I am content with that. I am done with the restless nights, tossing and turning. Waking up at 5 am, mind racing, never to fall back asleep. I am done letting these bad memories control my life. I’m ready. Bring it on, May!
