30 Days of Truths: Day 4

Day 04: 

Something you have to forgive someone for.

So here's yet another one I don't like.  When are we going to get to the happy ones?  I don't even want to go into detail on this.  I want happy stuff.  

I am hesitant to write this but here it goes... 

I forgive my dad.  He wasn't the greatest dad growing up.  The exact opposite actually.  You know how I wrote about how I was with Suraya when I was in my dark time?  Multiply that times 100 and you have my dad.  

I didn't have a good childhood.  I couldn't wait to grow up and move out.  I blocked a lot of it out.  I remember some things but they are not good memories for the most part.  I don't want to go into detail but it was just not a good 18 years of my life. 

I left when I was 18.

I forgive my dad now.  When Suraya was born he changed.  I can talk to him now.  It's still a little awkward because we didn't have a good relationship when I was little but he tries.

I know some people will not understand and may never understand why or how I can forgive.  I chose to move past it and make amends.  I don't want to be angry for the rest of my life and let it consume me.  

I forgive him.
