How do I go about forgiving someone that I despise? Particularly a MIL? She is rotten to me!! And not just with words!! This woman has done things such as trying to convince my husband that our first son was not his because to her “the dates don’t add up”. She told our priest that she refused to give her blessing to our marriage, resulting in him not marrying us. AndI could go on and on. I’ve tied talking to her, and it doesn’t do a bit of good. I stole her “perfect angel” away from her, so to her, I’m the devil.
I can’t seem to get past things that she’s done. Moreover, when I do start to “forget” about them, she does something else that just brings everything back to surface again. My poor husband is caught in the middle. I want to get past these feelings, but I just can’t. We moved 14 hours away from them this year, and now I have to deal with visits. I have three weeks to brace myself before I see her again.
