Coming to terms with injustice

Do we ever come to terms with injustice, or does it depend on what those injustices are? Although injustices are made, and apologies aren’t always forthcoming, I believe with understanding we can think about and come to terms with injustice.

We can wipe the slate clean and move forward, but for that to happen understanding must be part of that equation. As far as the universe is concerned, we will always be encouraged to find the understanding.

Of course, it is only when we come to understand the person behind the behaviour and the personality that we can begin to unravel the reasoning behind their actions. It is understanding the reasoning that allows us to make an informed choice on whether we choose to forgive or not.

It often takes a certain character to forgive. Coming to terms with injustice is also often based on how strong and what our belief system is. Empathy and compassion are also two key ingredients.

In the end, even if we choose not to forgive, we will have understood our own reasoning for non-forgiveness and that will help us come to terms with the injustice.

  1. My entire childhood was an injustice, so me coming to terms with it hasn’t been an easy task to put it mildly.

    I had thought that with the death of my father things would change, but it didn’t make me feel any differently, or at least that’s the way it felt.

    Once again I didn’t really have the chance to process those feelings, or at least in the way that others thought I should. People expect you to be devastated and heartbroken when a parent passes.

    For me because it was so complicated, I didn’t feel much of anything, other than relief that I didn’t have to deal with the nursing home anymore.

    I’m not sure of when I will come to terms with everything, but I know I need to do it soon, to finally have some peace in my life.

    1. Ditto on your feelings Randy. Truth be known those were my feelings too, one of relief that I didn’t have to work through and defend my corner all the time.

      When anyone deals with what is classed as abuse, you get to the point where you welcome the peace. It doesn’t take away the experiences, but from the moment your circumstances change you do have the opportunity to work through healing.

      You deserve to have your peace Randy and you shall, but first you must come to terms with your experiences. And once you have that, you’ll be better placed to overcome the injustices behind your experiences.
