Cat power sea of love

By

Cathy

The past few years I've been going through something I thought I'd never have to deal with. I'm not talking about the usual bumps in the road with my husband and the in-laws.

I've dealt with those, in fact I was so blessed when he met and fell for his future bride that I could finally let go of some of my insecurities.

What I am referring to is the past. In the past 3 years I've dealt with a lot of people I've hurt. People who I've caused them pain and hurt myself. I don't mean in the normal way in which we all fall short of each other. I'm talking about real, intentional, intentional hurt.

So now I'm trying to forgive myself for that. I know I'm supposed to, that it's the Christian thing to do, but sometimes it's a real struggle.

I'm not a mean person. I am a loving, caring person and I believe in the power of positive thinking. But sometimes I do go off on tangents and I've said or done hurtful things.

For example, I once said to a friend "It's so nice to see you because I haven't seen you in so long. I've missed you." What I didn't realize was that I hadn't seen her since I was pregnant with her daughter, and I had been thinking about her on the way home from work one day and how I had been missing her.

I also once told my husband that he couldn't get me anything for my birthday because I'd gotten so many gifts that he didn't want to buy me anymore. I didn't even think about that one until several days later.

I also had a boyfriend in high school who I was madly in love with and that just made my heart ache. But I was too young and too dumb to know it and just thought that he liked me as much as I liked him.

That one hurt pretty bad because I was too young to know the difference.

And I also once said to someone that I was going to "give" her the wrong information. I was trying to help out a friend and she was giving me wrong info. I knew better but I was trying to be nice so I thought she would forgive me.

I think that one was the one that hurt the most, because I had already forgiven my husband for the "same" thing. He had a vasectomy when we were trying to have a baby, and I had forgiven him for that and it broke my heart when he gave me a reason for not wanting to try anymore.

He said it was my fault that we were childless.

That hurt.

Those are the three that come to mind right now. But I'm sure there are many, many more.

I'd like to start right now to ask for your prayers. I'm not praying to "get" anyone. I am praying for myself and for the people who've hurt me. For the people who hurt me before I even realized what they were doing and before they had the ability to do it intentionally.

And most of all I'm asking for forgiveness. Not just for myself, but also for the ones who are still alive and for all the lives I've caused pain and hurt in my life.

Please pray for me, for all of us. And I'll pray for all of you and all your situations.

Thank you.

Love,

Cathy

You're a better person than me...I have hurt many people, myself included. I need to be more careful and more aware of my thoughts and actions.

I will pray for you...and myself.

You are an amazing person, Cathy. Thank you for sharing your journey, because it is always worth it.

That is a really hard thing, Cathy, for me to even imagine. I am not sure I understand how that could happen. I mean, I get angry, and that hurts people, but I don't go around intentionally trying to hurt other people.

The only thing I can think of is being in your shoes. You are a great person, but there must have been a point where you decided that you did not want to be the person you had become, so you made a decision to change. Unfortunately it was not the same decision that the people you had been hurt with had made.
