Heart of the matter even if you don't care it's about forgiveness

Tenderness ��

Laying cross from my husband whom I love but hasn't forgive for all we've been/still going through. This song is just what I needed to hear.

I am living this right now I keep breaking up with this man that is clearly no good for me but the thought of him being with someone else and it working hurts because it didnt work with me and I sacraficed alot. Life does go on and I am trying to get over the eating me up inside part but I forgive him even if he doesnt love me anymore. I love this song it is so perfect.

OH THE WORDS ARE AMAZING!! TOUCHES MY HEART EVERY TIME I HEAR IT...THANK YOU INDIA :)
Report as inappropriate
I'm amazed how I can connect the words to my actual life story with my marriage of 25 years. I know he still loves me but his pride won't allow him to act on what's truely inside of him. He carries so much anger that it's hard for him to move forward with someone new. If only he would forgive me as I have forgiven him. Jose, let go of the past so you can set yourself free. I wish you all the best always and you'll always be the love of my life - It will always be - MyGString4u & Joeshmoe4u
