Quote of the day
"You show up on time. When you say you're going to do something, you try to do your best at it. You don't backstab people.  You don't bitch and complain about what you're doing. Being compassionate is big. And it's always important to act like a gentleman."
~  Scott Eastwood on the code taught by his father Clint Eastwood, American actor

I have two ex-husbands, each of them the father of one of my children.  On this day that is devoted to forgiving an Ex, I poke my feelings towards them.  A long time ago, I realized that the opposite of love is not hate, and I worked on achieving indifference as far as what happened between them and me.  Forgiving what they have each done to their offspring?  That comes a bit harder.  My son has come to a place where he accepts his father for what he is and doesn’t have any negative emotional investments in the relationship for the most part, so I have been able to let my first husband go completely.  My daughter?  I do not understand how her father can live each day without speaking, without knowing about her health saga and his granddaughters, and so I am annoyed with him even after 34 years.  I’m not sure how to forgive him for his intransigence and arrogant pride that causes the rift between him and our daughter, but it’s no skin off my nose and he is the loser thereby, so is forgiveness even mine to grant or withhold?    

*looks a little sad*

I don’t think either of them have forgiven me for my part in the failed relationships.  Sometimes, if I think about it, knowing there are two people who might actively wish me ill is rather dispiriting.
