Amen!! And then sometimes you just have to walk away even after they're forgiven. You can never forget some people's actions, just simply try to forgive and then separate yourself from their web of lies dysfunction and manipulation. (I speak from experience on this one as you may see...lol)
I know nothing of GOD's timing. It doesn't concern me anymore. But I know that the way we look at stress can FREAKING KILL you! Scientifically, it's not the stress, but the attitude toward it. So embrace it. It's gonna happen. Stoicism can save your life.
This is important to understand. Something I've noticed about my "generation" is that they just "like" something, but they have no idea what it actually means. I was always different to the others… you don't just like a song for the way it sounds, for who else likes it or for who sings it - you like it because YOU like it and the meaning relates to you. I'm sorry I had to put this out there
