i realized this morning that i've reached the point of forgiveness.
this is big.
i wasn't specifically aiming for it, but i felt it when it happened.
at first, i just needed keep breathing. that was difficult enough some days.
then there was processing the seething anger. i was afraid that alone would consume me.
although it doesn't excuse shit, or change what happened, or erase the boundary lines, it is so liberating to know that...i forgive.
