Letting go...

Does everyone have it? That one thing that they simply can not forget? That one situation in their life that makes them feel stuck? Does it anger you as much as it angers me? To work so hard at moving on from something and feel like no personal progress has been made? Is it just me?

It makes me feel like such a failure...that I simply can not move forward. I question if I ever will. Can I simply wave the white flag and accept that I will always be stuck?

I have learned to treat people differently because of it. I have learned to swallow my pride. I have learned to demand respect and to act in a way where I, in turn, respect others. These are good things... Great lessons to take away. But that one thing...that one situation still makes me feel so awful and I'm so sick of it!

Do you have one of those?

This message was intentionally vague, I know...but you come to a good point...good and bad things come from having something you're so aware of it weighs upon you every day. Remember not to let go of the good lessons when you let go of whatever it is that has you stuck.

The vagueness of this post also really caught my attention....my mind is reeling with what you might be stuck with. Although I (obviously) respect your privacy!
What really grabs my attention though is that you write about the lessons you have learned from this situation that is so frustrating. I think it shows true character-- going through something difficult and still learning, growing and having hope. I also believe, in the bottom of my soul, that everyone has secrets in their hearts, some good and some not so good....don't be too hard on yourself though, sounds to me that you might be unsticking yourself just by learning about being stuck!
Hey, thanks for your comment on my blog. It means a lot to me that there are people out there who are supportive. It was a hard post to write and even harder to publish so I really appreciate your comment!

Hugs and kisses to you. It makes me sad to know that this still plagues you so much - but your strength is now defining you, and it is evident. Be proud as proud of yourself as I am of you.
