I have to be honest, I thought about it for quite some time. I tried to weigh how I feel about everything. I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t tempted to just let my pride win me over because it’s easier to just stay away and not do anything.
But this little voice inside my head kept on yelling “you’re better than this, be the bigger person.” I was reminded that the greatest tragedy in our time today is to not show compassion and not forgive even those who wronged us.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re any different from all the others. No, this doesn’t prove that you’re different, but it proves that I am. I’d like to think that I’m a different person now.
What sets you apart from all those that came before you is the fact that right now I’m ready to bury the hatchet. Maybe not forget about what happened, but at least move past it with a more peaceful and hopeful outlook on a lot of things.
I believe that kindness is the best gift anyone can give someone else. So on this day, I am choosing to give you that. Happy birthday.
