balm of gilead

Have you ever been so mad at multiple people that all you can do is cry, shake, and yell? And in the process said things that needed to be said, but would have gone easier had you not been angry? And know that you should apologize, but also not because you said what everyone else was thinking but didn't have the guts to say out loud? And to top it all off, can't get unmad because your child is involved? And even though your child did something wrong, the other party is acting like your child should be in a max. security penitentiary? And your child wasn't the only child who did something wrong, but is the only one being vilified? And even though you know that the anger is only poisoning you, and no one else cares that you are mad, somehow you can't let the anger go even though you keep praying for peace and relief?

I have used the atonement so often in my life to let go of hurt. The other thing that works for me is to hate the sin (bad behavior) and love the sinner (put it in a category of personality fault!). Then just get on with it. It is now their problem; not yours! Love Ya!!!

Or you can just kick something (preferably a cat), and mutter made-up curses under your breath....lol
I know you can get through this, Viki! I love ya!!

I hope that time and the atonement will heal all wounds. It hurts the most when your children are involved. You just want everyone to see how wonderful your children are, even if they have made a mistake. The mistake is NOT the child!

Hang in there. Sometimes you have to feel the hurt before you can feel the peace. The Lord is aware of you and your trials. You are loved by many people.
