Dear God, I have issues with my mother.
She doesn’t like the way I dress and thinks I weigh too much.
For these reasons, I stay away from her and don’t speak to her.
She has hurt me pty in the past, and yet I know I need to forgive her for my OWN sake.
Please help me to forgive her.
Know that even though I may forgive her, I still will not visit with her, simply because she is hurtful and I must exercise discernment to protect myself.
Please help me to strike a balance and forgive her and yet be discerning as well.
Thank You, Dear God.
