I have found that when someone innocently causes another person to be hurt, usually an offer of understanding and reconciliation proceeds in an effort to put it right. However, what if the victim has been hurt so badly that forgiveness is too difficult and sometimes even almost impossible? Depending on the severity of the offense, healing could take a very long time and even then, we may try to forgive, but often, we are unable to forget. Each circumstance is different and of course produces a different set of painful consequences.
It is my intention that some of the instances of times in my life when I have experienced hurtful emotional and physical pain, that somehow one of them may be an instrument of help and healing to the reader.
