Some of you might be surprised to know, that I have been unkind to someone, and I have been unkind to her for a very long time.
I have treated her poorly. I have hated her. I have chastised her. I have denied her forgiveness. I have thought that she was the ugliest, stupidest, lowliest creature who did not deserve my attention or my love.
And today…I am sorry for that. I realized this morning during my meditation, that I have spent such a long time just being mean to her and denying her the love and kindness that she deserves. I do not forgive her, because she has do NOTHING that demands forgiveness.
I am talking about myself, of course. I have treated my family, and my friends way better than I have ever treated myself. So today….that is going to start to change.
