Day Sixteen: Looking at forgiving family

08 Mar

I slept like a log last night!

I’ve been thinking aout my sister since last week, so there’s obviously something there.

I can’t work out whether I want to forgive out of a sense of keeping everything hunky dory or if I really want to forgive her.

Maybe time will do the trick because it ws a silly argument.

I don’t like arguments and I don’t like confrontation.

However, being non-cnfrontational makes me feel like a looser.

I want to be able to stand my ground and not run.

‘Give the other cheek’?

Has anyone ever done this? Is it workable?

It doesn’t sit well with me.

‘Forgive them Seventy time seven’…’Forgive them for they do not know what they do’…forgiveness is turning out to bevery difficult.

Now I’m angry with my sister for putting me in a situation whereI have to practise forgiveness!


I’m in silent meditation this weekend – last night ended up like a party sort of – people singing and telling stories. It was nice.

“Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.” Luke 23:24

    I’m fighting for my life.

    I never dealt with my drinking… It’s on hold. I’ve never gone more than a few months. I had this thought that I could manage five. That I could handle transforming my life for a year, two years, five years. Of being different in five years. By fifty. Not that I think how I am is bad but I want to see – can I do what I want?

    And then the porn. It’s an issue for me now. I don’t feel shame but…. What is purity? It confuses me. I know the deal…. Let Simon be enough. Have a drink when it comes. Let life guide you, don’t go dictating.

    Do I have the courage to let this message stand?

    Lent. I promise to give up certain things, that’s his it goes. I’m taking at that.

    I’ll give it another go.

    Kenny. One day at a time. There is nothing wrong. You can do it.
