siSTARS with Tikeetha Thomas (Part 2)

In this interview, Tikeetha discusses her understanding of forgiveness with regards to her relationship with her father. Also, Michelle asks her about her process for healing. With Father’s Day just around the corner in the States, I feel this is a timely discussion. Please feel free to add your thoughts about forgiveness and healing and how it manifests in your life.

    1. Thanks for tuning in B! I think that’s what’s missing from so much of life, different perspectives. A lot of times we end up only hearing and interacting with what satisfies our own egos, and for some reason, I think, this can’t be healthy 😉

  1. Fortunately both my brother Stephen and I had a good relationship with our Dad.

    I was Daddy’s little girl. However Dad was a strict but Loving Father. To this day I admire and Love My Daddy. He meant the world to me and even though he passed away in May 1995 and Mom died in August 1998 I have never really gotten over my parents deaths. When they died parts of me died. Both Mother and Father Days are extremely sad 😢💔 for me.

  2. This past week I took a class on Forgiveness at my church. It gave me a lot of food for thought. I have a better understanding of forgiveness from a Biblical standpoint. Of course bringing together one’s heart and mind is a long drawn out process. If I could sweep away the pain, emotions and feelings that would make forgiveness much simpler. Easier. Whether forgiving certain family members or myself this might take months or years for me. I also have been dealing with anger issues for years. Believe me when I say I tried everything to get rid of my anger and move forward. It budged a little but not much. More than likely I will be dealing with these problems for life. At least the class gave me a safe forum to discuss some of my challenges. In my case Healing is not a term that I would use until I see some actual success.

  3. Lively quartet!
    I want to say something I learned about myself one time regarding forgiveness. There was someone who I needed to forgive but I did not want to because I was invested in the narrative of having been wronged [by that person.] I wanted to keep that story alive because I didn’t know what else to do with my hurt….
    Ultimately, it came to me in a dream that I needed to relinquish my feelings and behavior toward this person. When I woke up I knew that I had to do this, yet I was surprised to realize how resistant I was to forgiveness! I felt like a child who wanted to throw a tantrum! I had to get on my knees and ask God to help me.
    In a nutshell: I later saw how much my disdain for this person had robbed me of time, energy, joy, and peace of mind during the period when I was nursing my story of being a victim. (This is like the watered-down version coz I didn’t want to leave a dissertation in your comments section, Kathy! lol!)
