To a friend

Sometimes bad things happen to us through no fault of our own.

Sometimes children are taken advantage of by people they trust, people who should be protecting them instead of hurting them.

Later in life, the hurt never having left, the sense of outrage sometimes builds to a desire to avenge the outrage.

In times like that, we can only go off by ourself and come to terms with the damage. Will we allow the betrayal to affect us forever? Or will we resolve not to give it continuing power in our lives?

In such times, the only right thing to do is that which will bring us the most peace, regardless of what others close to us urge us to do.

Sometimes the only true justice to be had is in letting go and moving forward.

The farther forward you move, the farther behind you will leave the hurt.

Try to take control. Keep your own counsel and stand by the decision that you know is best for your own well-being. Remember that many people care for you and wish you well.

"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it."

—Helen Keller
