A Necessary Distance 

Many words are spoken about forgiveness but how do we live it? I have devoted a greater portion of the past three years trying to figure out the answer to this question. I have come to realize that there comes a point when one can forgive someone his/her lies and betrayals and the pain caused, but at the same time, accept that for a little while, he/she needs not be in one's life. This series is my way of processing what has occurred in my own private life and these thoughts about forgiveness. My visualization of the idea that I have come to accept, that sometimes what is needed is simply a necessary distance, to allow for life to move on, to allow a space for the heart to heal, and then maybe, one day, I will meet him again and be able to truly say, "Hello my friend, how have you been?"
