Toronto had an ice storm that begun about Sunday morning December 22 with about 80,000 people living in the dark and cold. The first few days I had spent them with boyfriend.
Today I had spent a few hours at my cousins home. It was so nice to see them. Always a pleasure to be in their company. Being around them like I did today, there is one thing I hope to have more of in the future: wisdom.
I’m still not looking back even though some argue that I should forgive the family. Forgiveness isn’t enough when the family is a dysfunctional one.
My life is better without them in it. I am happy, healthier (especially mentally) and doing things that promote a better future for me. With them I have recurring nightmares. There are only bad memories associated with them. It’s a broken family. Even if I forgive them one day, I still won’t be visiting them.
As for my current relationships, I am not taking it for granted that it will be forever. The only person I’m going to be with until the end of my days is me.
