I just got off the phone with a woman who has been dealing with guilt that consumed her for the past 20 years. The pain of an abortion that she has been living with day after day, month after month, and year after year, and no peace! Can you imagine that! First of all, how does one find peace for themselves? I guess so many of us carry years of guilt, that we really have no clue.
I can remember a time that I asked my mother at the tender age of 6, if she could spend some time with me to talk. She looked at me and said I don’t have any time to talk with you, go find something else to do. I can recall that conversation very well. I was deeply hurt, I never saw my parents because of the parties they attended when my dad was in the military. I carried that pain for 22 years and honestly felt no feelings towards her for a long time.
When my mom was dying from cancer 22 years later, on her death bed she asked me “do you remember the time you wanted to talk with me and I said that I didn’t have time for you”. I said yes mom I do, she then asked me to forgive her for saying that to me. Imagine how she felt all those years with carrying her own guilt about me. I think she felt better talking about it. She confessed it, and I felt better.
