[stepping of a cliff…]

[stepping of a cliff…]

I did it.

I did something I should’ve done a long time ago.

I apologized.

Granted, it was through a text message.

It still cost me a lot (not in the money sense.)

It cost me my pride.

It cost me my self-righteousness.

It cost me my safe comfortable life.

Hitting “Send” for that text message was like stepping off a cliff.

And you don’t know what’s beyond that cliff – will you plummet towards the valley below or will you find solid ground beneath your feet?

I have no idea what the result will be.

I made the first step and raised my hands up in surrender.

Will it be accepted or rejected… I don’t know.

All I know is I could no longer pray “…and forgive us our sins like we forgive those who sin against us” and mean it.

And I wanted to mean it.

I am tired of living with this burden hanging like a millstone around my neck.

It was scary… yet it was freeing too.¬†

My part is done. What will the other party say?

Have you ever done something like this? I mean, when you have absolutely no idea what will the other side do? How did it go? Any advice you care to share?
