Scar Tissue Never Really Goes Away…
HURT…remains long after the wound has recovered, even after the pain is no more and the actions have long passed on being only a faint memory to those involved. However, there is always someone for whom this “scar tissue” remains as it is never truly gone away.
Long beyond the recovered abrasions, the insistent and aching pain, the memory of the malignant words, the actions and the intentional hurt of a particular moment remains as keen and clear as the day it occurred.
Protected by my mind, yet driven by my heart; I choose to speak the words upon my heart and smirk at people who toss random quotes of “forgiveness” at me. Replying in my sugar sweet manner…”forgiveness ain’t for everyone.” In my world forgiveness begins with sincerity, stemming from acknowledgement of having committed a wrong…a hurt.
There are moments in life “once in a life time” moments that can never be relived, never again enjoyed, never savored in their truest form of love and bliss. It is these such moments that when ruined by the shear pettiness of others that I refuse to extend my heart in forgiveness and that’s a decision that I can live with.
