Today, I realize that I have made some headway to emotionally dealing instead of emotionally eating!
I recently moved to the same city as my family, sisters, cousins, etc.
Wow! This is a TEST!
I LOVE MY FAMILY; that's a given. We are all close, though I managed to live out of state for 42 years, until now.
It's different with family. Forgive has to be the word that comes right after LOVE, especially in a family setting.
Oh and forgive must be equal to forgetting what happened and never repeating the event again!
I was told that I am stronger, because I didn't retaliate to a possible blow-up. My 'rights' were offended, after all. ;)
I am so glad God gave me the wisdom not to act on my feelings; and I did NOT eat over the event either!
I would go into more detail over the event, but when I forgive, I forget, and that's that!
I was also able to accept the fact that I can be heartless when I discuss others kids and their lack of respect to their parents......
It's really none of my business!
I have decided to 'just be there' for my sister's if and when they need an ear, and keep my opinion' to myself.
Many lessons learned and many opportunities to LOVE and forgive.
After all, God has forgiven me sooooo much!
Who am I to do less?
