Thirty Days of Truth: Day 10

Day 10: Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn't know

Almost to the second week! Hubs is surprised I've not become bored of this. I think he has been trying to make me forget about the blog...Last night we had a lovely evening meeting some friends of ours that are also clients of his, came home enjoyed a movie and some Mancala. Have you played that game? It is soooo addicting!

My brother gave it to me a couple years ago for a gift and I've played it a few times, but we have a heated competition going on in our home. A simple game that even our lil guy is loving! 
Ok, back on track: Day 10: There was a guy back in college-oh no not that kind...haha
Well, this guy had some major issues, and I ended up being at my friend's house (who happened to be his roomate) when he decided to get wasted and beat up on his girlfriend. A VERY long story short-I ended up holding him back- think: barricading him with my body...until the police came.

I had phone calls from his fraternal buddies, and himself threatening me if I showed up in court. And ended up with a restraining order and police escort on campus a few times because he found out my schedule and was harassing me. I lived in fear-I had just gotten out a bad relationship, and was thrown into this!? All I could think was that I was supposed to help her. I wish there was a way I could have helped her without knowing him. That is the crazy truth. His family ended up spending probably my entire college tuition on getting him a slap on the wrist, so sad.

But I do, I need to let him go. I still worry to this day whether or not she ever got back with him, or if he still lives in my town. All I can do is live in the light of love and hope that they have figured out a better way to live as well. It makes me want to find all the little kids whose parents don't love them the way they deserve, and just do the minimum, or worse, and say "I'm doing my best" those are the kids that need more love. Some people's worst is better than other's best...all it takes is a look in the news to see it. Let alone a look in the playgrounds... True love can move mountains, and know no bounds.
