One cannot force love to happen before its right time…
The same way that one cannot force oneself to forgive or to heal at will.
Love, forgiveness, healing–they all take time.
A month, a year, a snap of a finger, a lifetime, who knows?
But they happen.
In that order.
At least in my case.
Just one act of love,
That extra mile for love,
Might actually lead to the road of forgiveness.
And when that happens
You might be surprised to realize
That completes your healing.
Grateful to the people who taught me this life lesson.
