Dear Pastor Sam Column
Dear Pastor Sam,
Please don’t let my identity get out because I have a very personal question. I don’t want to go into it but something very bad happened to me when I was a young girl. I have never said anything about it but now I am hearing all these people coming out and sharing these things that happened to them and the people getting what is due to them. The person that this terrible thing happened with has in now very wealthy and they could pay a good settlement. What should I do?
Dear Still Angry,
I don’t know what exactly happened but my take on this is let it go. Deal with your anger and forgive. Not sure how many years it has been but bringing up something that was done years ago is not going to fix your anger. You won’t get what you are hoping for but forgiveness will help your anger and will help you in the long run. Please write me back and let me know what you do. I will keep your name out of it.
