I have recently been hit by the realization that phrases like, "He's not heavy, he's my brother" and, "Am I my brother's keeper?" have limitations. I am not only human, but a flawed human. I can only handle so much. I can only forgive so much. I can only forgive what has been asked of me to be forgiven. I am working on forgiving in the face of continued offense. I'm working on it.
I may not be able to resolve my daddy issues, but I still hope to resolve my brother-issues.
I realize that this post was all over the place, but I had to get it out of my head to think straight again. Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to join the discussion and leave a comment.
