Until now I never understood the real meaning of forgiveness. I guess the universe has plans to teach you things at the right time in the right manner. Not a lot of people know that when I was around 10 years, my parents got separated. Childhood wasn’t easy and they aren’t many favorite memories if I look back at that time. However, it wasn’t worse because we as in my mother and my brothers were quite knitted together. Deep relationship, I will say. So, fast forward all these years, I grew up hating my father and thinking over how things would have been different if he was around. Thinking doesn’t change reality and the frustration towards him grew stronger until now.
Until now, when my brother and I over some random discussion thought on how he was destined to be a part of our journey and how his deeds taught us some cruel realities of life at such a young age. How his actions have taught us to establish deep relationships and not give up on relationships easily because I don’t want to call like him.
With this realization, came forgiveness. Forgiveness on whatever he did and whatever we assumed. He is no more and can’t describe in words on how miserable I feel of missing the opportunity of walking upto him and sorting this entangled relationship. No matter where you are papa, I just want to say that I loved you, I forgive you and I miss you!!
“Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.”- someone
