Learning to Forgive Letter

My Dearest Lotte,

It's tough I know.

It takes time to forgive. It takes time to be strong. Take it a day at a time, it's just one of those things you can't force, you can just hope that one day it grows back into love. Its up to you to allow it to happen.

Forgiveness sometimes is not just about the other person, but finding peace for yourself, finding closure for all the pain you went through. Sometimes holding onto hate is just harmful, so learn to let go, do not wait till your love runs dry. We have frailties like everyone else, and on some days we have to deal with that flash of resentment or unhelpful intrusive thoughts. It gets bad, sure. We're all vulnerable like that. There isn't a right or wrong answer to get to that road of forgiveness. But I really do hope you both get to where you need to be.

Be strong with the choice you make.
