Sometimes cleaning up the scene of the crime helps the healing process.
I previously wrote about knowing too much of the dirty details may make forgiveness impossible. Knowing the who, what, where, and when and other dirt can mess with your mind and trigger PTSD-like symptoms.
However, sometimes you cannot forget and you may have a daily reminder in the living room. You are left with 3 options:
- You can choose to forgive.
- You can choose NOT to forgive.
- You can BURN the Couch.
Forgiveness takes time, choosing not to forgive takes a commitment, burning the couch takes a lighter.*
Matthew Thompson is a Mississippi Divorce Attorney and reminds you that if you are going to burn the couch, do so outside, in a safe manner and in full compliance of all applicable laws.*
