To every child of imperfect parents — 4 Comments

  1. Good stuff! I believe I have worked through my anger issues towards my parents. I have forgiven them even though they are both deceased. At my age it’s not worth harboring any ill will towards them. Thanks for your wonderful words of wisdom.

    • Thank you, Dave. I’m glad you have arrived at a place of forgiveness.
      It’s nice to have you visit Today Can Be Different. I hope you drop by often.

  2. Thanks for sharing, Dave. I used to have a lot of anger issues. Sheryl and Bert sent me a book, Total Forgiveness, which I am reading along with my Bible. I find that one of the hardest things to do is to forgive yourself. So if I may paraphrase, Sheryl: Be kind to yourself, tenderhearted, forgiving yourself, as God in Christ forgave you.

    • Hi, FellowBeliever. Nice to hear from you again.
      Forgiving ourselves is indeed an important step toward wholeness. I appreciate God’s compassion each time He convicts me of behavior that isn’t pleasing to Him. His grace enables me to move forward which includes accepting His forgiveness. I’ve found forgiving myself gets easier when I yield to His direction on how to live my life differently (obediently).
