Turning the other cheek

November 15th, 2008 (08:59 pm)

This isn't toward any in specific.

I feel like I've grown up a lot this summer. I've learned how to handle different situations. I've seen things that I wish I didn't have to. I used to hold grudges. I'd forgive but never forget. There are some situations I will never forget but I'm learning to get past them.

I've made some mistakes, and I've owned up to those mistakes. I've apologized to who I needed to and I like to think that I've made amends.

You don't have to like me, you don't have to love me, you don't have to respect me, you don't have to wish me well, you don't have to care. But I will always do that for you. No matter what happens, I'll always do right, whether you reciprocate those feelings is completely up to you. I'll always turn the other cheek. Its not worth anyone's time to stay angry or stay hateful. Those feelings usually just make matters worse, at least that's always been the case for me. I've found that its just so much easier and makes for a better life to just love.

I hope people can find it in their hearts to get past the past and get over the mistakes that we've all made. If they can't do that then I accept that. I'll always continue to love and I'll always be here for you.
