He did the best he could…

The best he could…

Sometimes believing in a lie is easier than swallowing the truth…

Acceptance is a strange thing…

I always thought I needed his approval…his validation…

But…

I needed to accept the love he could give….

And the love he couldn’t…

The pain he gave…

I tried a long time to forgive….

Even longer to let go…

But I learned I couldn’t hold on and let love in at the same time…

It may always hurt…

There may always be a scar…

As the pain fades…

Strength and hope replace it…

Love pours in…

Fear falls away…
