i am strong .
i let go of that past .
i am not excusing you .
i will always remember . 
i do not require an apology .
i do not expect you to change .
i believe your truth will come to you .
i know forgiveness is just for me .
i affirm my healing journey .
i wish you well henceforth .
i gave my time to time .

i release you forever .
i free myself now .
