Build a Bridge...

A brief lesson for today:

Have you ever heard the saying, "Build a bridge and get over it"?

This quote (not sure how famous it is) is normally used whenever someone is constantly dwelling on to a particular issue instead of moving on from it. The same principle can be applied when dealing with difficult family members or those who have wronged you in the past.

If you would like to have your sanity, it would be wise to at least make plans for getting over the grudge you're holding. Otherwise, you will always be too bitter over what has transpired between you two (or three, or four) to make any progress.

Dysfunctional families of any sort are no fun. It's when you learn how to deal with issues and most importantly, forgive and forget that you will truly be able to mend that situation.
