Re: attempting to be a voice of reason...
What I'm saying is, if you're willing to forgive it without a second thought in your own case, you should extend that to other people.
Who says I've forgiven myself? Not me . . .
I'm more likely to forgive another's failings than my own faults.
and whether or not he needed to speak to you at all is the root of the problem. That matter wasn't discussed and resolved clearly.
I was informed of the decision as a fait accompli -- my only options were to accept or leave. I did my very best to accept, but failed. The situation ended up being more than I could bear.
It would have been nice to have been asked instead of informed -- to have been given an opportunity to be generous and giving instead of being forced to accept a situation, will I, nill I. If that had been done, things would most likely have been very, very different.
I can be very kind and generous when properly approached. No one saw fit to do that though. They didn't seem to think it either desirable or necessary.
It occurred to me today what you had said about my adoption ritual...is it possible that this is all pushing an additional button that has to do with family and community?
Yes. And being excluded from it. Deliberately.
There is no place at the table for me.
