There are hundreds of situations relative to relationships where partners disagree with each other, hearts are broken, feelings are hurt, trust is lost, and forgiveness is hard to find. No matter how deep the pain or depth of the situation or problem there is always room for forgiveness. When you have been deeply hurt or betrayed by your beloved and the pain in unbearable you must always recognize that you have the option to choose. First, you must search deep within your own heart and spirit and ask the question without the help of others “If” this relationship deserves to be saved. What is the benefit in my life? Will I and can I live with or without regret based on the decisions I make?
Many women are perplexed at the decisions if Hilary Clinton and Carlita Kilpatrick who dealt with the infidelity of their husbands in front of the world, but for their reasons alone fought for their families, their marriages, and their husbands. Why did it work at the time from them? There was some forgiveness. I’m sure there were tears, I’m sure there was screaming and heartbreak; but I’m equally sure there was a commitment to work through the tough times to reap the personal reward of a renewed love, commitment, and forgiveness. I know it can be hard, but is it worth it if both people are willing to do the work to make it. If you make the decision to stay in the relationship, resolve first that you will allow and open yourself the spirit of forgiveness, and move on. If you need a counselor seek one out. If you need spiritual guidance call your pastor. If you need strength call on GOD!
Regardless of the situation or your partner’s position or opinion, you ultimately can determine the direction for your life and for your happiness. Our decision are sometimes based on extenuating circumstances, be it children, finances. Are image, you at the end of the day must be happy. I can respect anyone that will work hard to rekindle the love they once had to save their marriage or relationship, however not at the expense of losing themselves in the process. If you are in a situation where you have chosen to stay in your relationships, forgive your partner, let go and let God!
