That night I read something on Facebook that said that once you love someone you never stop loving them. You may no longer trust them or like them, but you still love them. And I immediately thought of one person who I'd once been very close to, and believed this to be true. I will probably always love them, regardless of the horrible mess they put me through.
OK, now back to the story...
So I woke up in the middle of the night a few weeks ago with the profound feeling that I should somehow let this person know that they were forgiven. It was as if a voice was speaking to me, I think it was God. I’ve heard it before.
It is very plain, nothing fancy or frightening, but it is intense and it just “speaks.” I fell right back to sleep, but I thought about it again when I woke up. And I asked why I needed to do this. And what did I want this person to do as a result of it. The response I got was that doing this was not for them, but that I was doing this for myself.
So I sent the bum, I mean this person, a text just saying that it was unfortunate what we went through and that I hoped they were healthy and happy and well and moving on with their life.
You know I’ve been having trouble sleeping, but ever since then I’ve been sleeping like a baby.
Anyway, I’ve yet to hear anything from this person and I even wondered if they still had the same phone number. So just now I called the number, first blocking my number, of course, and they answered.
So they got the text but I guess they're still too angry or too embarrassed to respond. It really doesn’t matter, I didn’t send it for them. I sent it for me.
