The Love Dare Day 25
Today's dare was to forgive our spouse for something. I have nothing to forgive Michael for, but I used to hold grudges. Early on in our relationship I had found out that Michael and lied to me about something big, and then I found out about more lies. It destroyed my trust in him and caused a lot of issues as our relationship progressed. I held on to the pain and I didn't forgive him for it even though I said I did. I think I held onto the grudge for about 3-4 years and it ate at me until finally I had to decide to either forgive him or let him go. I decided that forgiving him was the best option and so I did. It was hard, to just let go of all the pain that he had caused me, but I prayed to God to help me work through that pain and God is awesome and God answers prayers. I won't say it was easy but I know He played a part in my ability to forgive. It's made our relationship stronger, and Michael doesn't lie to me anymore, and has rebuilt my trust in him.
