The soul cannot forgive until it
is restored to wholeness and health.
In the absence of love - how can one forgive?

With an abundance of love, starting with one's self,
forgiveness becomes a viable opportunity.

1992 - Entry Four – Estrangement

From a 1992 letter to myself:

……….I know how hard it is to break away from your mother and to give up on the dream of a loving, nurturing family. But she never has been a mother. You will never have her love. Don’t spend the rest of your life trying to get it. You’ll only get hurt.

I know that everyone keeps telling you that family is family and should be held together at all costs. I don’t think that cost should be you……
