My brother has not spoken to our (biological) dad in close to five years. For reasons that I, as his sister totally understand and that others may not think as right. But as you grow older and life’s situations cause you to cherish life and relationships more closely, the hardness and hatred that you hold in your heart starts to soften and the fact that forgiveness and family IS powerful makes things that hurt you in the past trivial.
I say all of that to say that I chose to forgive my dad at a time in my life when things were falling apart and I needed him to be apart of my tight family circle.
