30 Days of Truth - Day 4

Day 4 - Something you have to forgive someone for.

This day, again, took some thought. For someone to forgive, though, the thought wasn't just what I want to forgive someone for, but what I actually don't mind disclosing on my blog. I'm sure some of you know how that goes.

For a long time, I thought I needed my best friend to forgive me. She committed suicide, and I figured anyone who felt they had no one to turn to must have pretty crappy friends.

Now I still spend time - more than a decade later - remembering to forgive her for walking out on me. I spent too many years not letting anyone get close again, and I probably have less friends now as a result. But I don't want to blame her - she obviously already had more than she could deal with. I want to forgive her and reclaim the rest of my life.

I saw this list once before. What made you decide to start on Day 4? Day 2 is much more fun.
