A Reunion of Sorts

Have you ever been in a situation when you feel that you are owed an apology? When an estrangement came out of the blue, without provocation, and you were left speechless?

What do you do? How long do you wait for them to make amends? Do you want to reach out and risk rebuke?

Forgiveness is a choice. You might never be able to forget the pain that this person caused you. You might never be able to understand what you did to deserve this kind of treatment. You might even look back on your relationship and find that you were never fully trusting or compatible with this person. For what reason did you let this unsatisfying relationship to continue?

So the question is, do you do anything? Do you hide in your cave for a little while to recover, do you lick your wounds, do you get even? What do you do when your heart has been broken by a "friend"?

How you react and what you do (or don't do) is your choice. It is one of the hardest things that you will have to do, because in your action or inaction you will define who you are. Are you a Big enough person to move on or will you allow your hurt to turn you into a non trusting child?

One day, it is inevitable that your paths will cross. When one of you or both are in need of a further lesson. When that day comes, who will you be?
