Forgiving Someone I Can't F-ing Stand: The Series

I'm embarking on a project in forgiving someone over the next 14 days, and I'll be chronicling it here. First, let's get the reader up to speed ....

I'm on a mission to forgive a woman in my home group whom I will refer to as P.

I have known P for almost a year, and during that time, she has

  • Openly gone after BF
  • Called BF's ex wife to report to her about us when he blew her off
  • Started going out with my ex (admittedly, this is their prerogative since I have moved on)
  • Once she felt my ex was paying too much attention to me, she called everyone on our group's phone list to tell them I was sleeping with him behind BF's back
  • Then drunkenly threatened to kill me during a meeting I was chairing
Knowing her has been like having a season pass to the Museum of Crazy.

So yesterday she calls and leaves me a voice mail, asking to meet me for coffee so she can make an amends to me.


I would rather have a bikini wax and then wade in a pool of rubbing alcohol than do that!

So I called my sponsor. She instructed me to let P know that I would call her once I was ready. Then, I am to pray for her every day for two weeks as described in the BB on page 552 of the 4th edition. Then, barring any new and especially insane developments, I will meet with her.


Last night I prayed for her for the first time....

I'll hop on the prayer train with you. Some are sicker than others...

I love this post and have had a few interesting folks in my recovery that I have to pray's not easy...I do love the "museum of crazy" thought though! Thank you and I will be following your posts!

One should try and avoid alcohol with Viagra or Viagra soft tabs. This combination can increase your chances to obtain vertiginous or to lower your blood pressure.
