Taking what is not yours, to take,
Materially or emotionally is a big mistake.

Leaving emotional scars, of what you did,
Makes it hard to forgive.

No matter what you take,
You are still a snake.

You always.....

say it so succinctly. Love your candid thougths, and like Terrie, I can relate to this as well. We live and learn, forgive and move on. Thanks Barb. Hope you had a great holiday, and that your new year brings you many blessings.

gals that's how I learned things. went through things but then moved on and paid attention the next time,in other words I was made a skeptic. and am paying attention to the red flag that pops up.

so true

Thieving is not just of your possessions, stealing emotions can be far worse.

hey hey

Baaarb! Hey there! Strong. Powerful. A Thief. You know, I heard the saying, "once a thief, always a thief"...I don't know. I do believe a person can change. However, that trust you've had in them before their unrighteous deed, will be hard to gain back.

Right on Barb, right on!

Thanks Meridan Yea once the trust is gone they have to work hard to get it back.
