Quite a few people have asked me this question.
Although she’s still around. we haven’t crossed paths yet. I made a decision to forgive her late last year. This is why I haven’t made mention of her in quite a while, and it’s also why I’ve focused on having a more positive outlook with my posts (for the most part). I felt like if I couldn’t forgive, how can I expect others to forgive me?
I don’t worry about getting her forgiveness in return…there are some things for which I’d like to “clear the air” with her, but it’s not high on my priority list.
One of my co-workers had a very sad family tragedy last week…it made me think about how life can be so unexpectedly short, and how little value (actually, no value whatsoever) there is in carrying grudges and being unforgiving and vengeful. I choose not to be that way, and I’m a better and happier person for doing so.
We shall see what the future brings, but in my book rest assured, Miss Vitriol 2019 did not retain her title as “Miss Vitriol 2020.”
