I despise colds. They come at you out of nowhere at the most inconvenient times and make your life miserable for days. Your head feels full of cotton, eyes water, breathing becomes a labor. That is where I find myself today.
I find that past wrongs are kind of like colds. We all know we should forgive and forget, right? But then you see that person...the one that borrowed money and never returned it, that broke your heart, that stole your girl, that shared a secret, that told a lie. That in some way wronged you.
Old feelings flood back. Anger swirls, remnants of a fire once intense, puffed back to life. We question ourselves, thinking we had let it go, finding ourselves incapable of deleting the memory. Maybe we have been told to leave it "at the altar", but find no release. It always seems to sneak back into your heart at the most inopportune times, kinda like a cold.
How do you forgive and forget?
