If you say you forgive, then let go and let God

By Frankie Darcell

There are hundreds of situations relative to relationships where partners disagree with each other, hearts are broken, feelings are hurt, trust is lost and forgiveness is hard to find. No matter how deep the pain or depth of the situation or problem there is always room for forgiveness. When you have been deeply hurt or betrayed by your beloved and the pain is unbearable, you must always recognize that you have the option to choose.

First you must search deep within your own heart and spirit and ask the question without the help of others “if” this relationship deserves to be saved, what is the benefit of its value in my life? Will I and can I live with or without regret based on the decision I make? Many women are perplexed at the decision by Hillary Clinton and Carlita Kilpatrick, who in front of the world dealt with the infidelity of their husbands, but for their reasons alone they fought for their families, their marriage and their husbands. Why did it work at the time for them? There was some forgiveness. I’m sure there were tears, I’m sure there was screaming and heart break, but I’m equally sure there was a commitment to work though the tough times to reap the personal reward of a renewed love, commitment and forgiveness. I know it can be hard but is it worth it, if both people are willing to do the work to make it.

If you make the decision to stay in the relationship, resolve first that you will allow and open yourself the spirit of forgiveness and move on. If you need a counselor, seek one out; if you need spiritual guidance, call your pastor; if you need strength, call on God. Regardless of the situation or your partner’s position or opinion, you ultimately can determine the direction for your life and for your happiness. Our decisions are sometimes based on extenuating circumstances — be it children, finances or image — but at the end of the day, you must be happy. I can respect anyone that will work hard to rekindle the love they once had to save their marriage or relationship, but not at the expense of losing themselves in the process. If you are in a situation where you have chosen to stay in your relationship, forgive your partner, let go and let God.
