I got your letter on time as usual. The first paragraph filled me with sadness. What happened was unfair! A birthday is an important day; the fact that our parents forget your birthday is really bad! But understand that parents are also human and capable of forgetting even the things we don’t expect them to.
Now that you just returned to school, maybe they were preoccupied by the task of looking for money to pay for your tuition fee, plus other scholastic materials that you need.
But the fact that they sent you belated birthday massages and gifts means, it just slipped their minds. Please I beg you to accept their apologies and let go of the anger.
Keeping anger is not only un-Christian but also bad for your studies; you will not concentrate on your studies well when you’re still angry at them.
Forgiveness is the most important lesson you have to learn in life! We liberate ourselves of all kinds of negative emotions when we learn to forgive ourselves and others.
It’s not healthy (physically, emotionally and spiritually) to hold on to resentment, anger or any other type of negative feelings. It’s very important to learn to let go of all that baggage and pain.
Do you remember when you took mum’s diamond necklace without asking and lost it at a party? Even though that necklace was so expensive, she understood that we all make mistakes and forgave you.
You should learn to forgive so that you will also be forgiven when you mess u. They promised to make it up to you on your next birthday.
