Revelations with Life Lessons

Yesterday I had an epiphany.

More than 20 years ago, a man publicly humiliated me by spreading half-truths and blatant lies about me.

I have never forgiven him.

In January of last year, a man publicly humiliated me by spreading half-truths and blatant lies about me.

I have not forgiven him.

In August of last year, a man publicly humiliated me by spreading half-truths and blatant lies about me.

I have not forgiven him.

In all the cases, I once called them close friends. I have moved beyond it. I don't let their behavior direct how my life flows.

But I can never have a relationship with any of them in the future. Meaning, I can no loner be friends with them. I don't dwell on them at all. I do feel somewhat uncomfortable when any conversational subject carries in their direction.

The one from August seems to have the biggest issue leaving well-enough alone, though. He started additional mouth-flapping this month.

So it struck me that this must be of significant importance in dealing with it on my life path. I just don't know what I'm supposed to do about it.

I thought I was doing good because I don't let it rule my life. It bothers me when I get slapped in the face with it but I move on. So what is the point of this lesson. I can never forgive enough to call them friends.
