It can be unbelievably hard to forgive your ex-wife, but it can be done. One Play of the Day subscriber writes, “I forgave her but it took me a whole year and I had to forgive her in small sums over the 12 months. I paid those sums whenever I spoke to her, and kept myself from rehashing the past. I paid them whenever I saw her with another man and refused self-pity and rehearsal inside for what she’d done to me. I paid them whenever I praised her to others, when I really wanted to slice away her reputation. Those were the payments – but she never knew about them. However, I never knew her payments, but I know she made them. I can tell.”
Bitterness always eats its possessor. So resolve to make small payments of mercy. You and your children will be better for it.
