THE SAME F WORD

Yesterdays blog dealt with forgiving oneself for real or imagined imperfections.

The same is really true in dealing with others. Obviously, a few actions or words that others do or say may not be forgivable. But I always liked what Oprah said a few years ago(though I am not a big fan and no one person should earn 300+ million a year). What she said once was, "Just because you forgive someone doesn't mean you have to invite them over for potato salad."

What that means to me is that you can forgive someone and thereby get rid of the angst and the anger, but don't have to be their friend or have anything to do with them again. I like that idea.

Hope you do too. If not, I forgive you none-the-less.

Bye For Now,

Bill
