‘Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got.’ Robert Brault
This quote is perfect, complete, and true. If you are the one left to struggle with an apology that will never come, move forward when you can. It will likely be a slow process and a very long journey.
To leave an unacknowledged hurt behind us is one of the hardest things we will ever do. Be patient with yourself as you unshackle yourself from the past. It is tedious work because essentially you are doing the work of two …. because the other person who should be carrying half the burden- has abandoned their post and left you all alone.
There will be days where you will want to quit and lash out. Resist this…instead carry on and stay quiet.
Your dignity is the one thing you have that nothing else can ever touch.
