Have you ever noticed that when someone offends you, every conversation, every encounter with that person, is skewed?

They walk by and say, “Hi” but you are certain the inflection in their voice was really saying,”@#*&#%!” That person drops a document off at your desk and you are sure they only came by to spy on you. Yet in most cases, that person never even knows you’re upset with them.

When you finally let go of your offense, all those little incidents you had built up in your mind seem like no big deal. Probably because they weren’t.

Simple Roasted Vegetable Flatbread | ASpicyPerspective.com

I consider myself a pretty forgiving person. I have a vast array of quirky friends and family members (love you guys) and generally put up with all sorts of shenanigans.

They may do things I disagree with, but I can usually lay those things aside as differences that make us unique and move forward. Yet there is one thing I cannot put up with, and that is someone hurting a loved-one.

Easy Roasted Vegetable Flatbread | ASpicyPerspective.com

There is a particular person that hurt one of my family members years ago that I still have to work at forgiving.

Every time that person crosses my mind a deep fiery anger rises inside of me. Every time I meet someone that reminds me of that person, I want to start swinging fists.

This is a problem, not only for me, but for the poor unfortunate soul that walks into my world and happens to resemble the old foe.

Perfect Roasted Vegetable Flatbread | ASpicyPerspective.com

A friend recently made a profound statement that made me realize I needed to deal with this once-and-for-all.

“Holding onto offense is like taking poison and waiting for someone else to die.”

I may have every right to be angry with that person, but it doesn’t hurt anyone but myself to hold on to it.

How To: Roasted Vegetable Flatbread | ASpicyPerspective.com

In order to deal with something you have to allow yourself time to think about it. Then you process, scream, pray, cry, and resolve to move on.

Real forgiveness is something you do again and again… And every time it becomes a little more true.

Now, I know that has nothing to do with Roasted Vegetable Flatbread. *wink* I just felt like maybe someone needed to read this today, but I hate to leave things disjointed. I’ll try to turn this into an analogy if you’d like.

Ahem…

“Forgiveness is like Roasted Vegetable Flatbread because it’s FILLED with pleasant surprises.”

“An offended woman is a Roasted Vegetable Flatbread with no yeast; it may be pretty on the outside but it will never RISE to it’s full potential.”

“LAYER your Roasted Vegetable Flatbread like you offer forgiveness, with intentional delicacy and repetition.”

How was that?

    Dang, that flatbread looks out of control delicious! Yum!

    You can also let out a lot of anger kneading the dough you prepare yourself. I hope you wouldn’t have to prepare it to often.

  3. Meganposted February 27, 2011 at 11:00 pm Reply

    It is comforting to know that other people struggle with forgiving others…and also overcome hurts and growing from it. Great words, I love the quotes you came up with. I will definitely need to remember those. I think it ties in nicely — and what a tasty treat to remember these by! Looks delicious…lucky me, I just bought some pizza dough. :)

    I like this analogy…and therapy! Kneading dough is a great way to release. It IS so hard sometimes, but time does actually work. Sounds like you are on the right path to heal you – never mind that person. In the meantime, totally cool to kick, scream, put that person’s photo on a punching bag and go at it!! And then eat this gorgeous flatbread.

    That quote from your friend is a keeper. I love it and am writing it down to share with my children. I am not too sure I could convince them about the forgiveness/flatbread connection, though :-). It does indeed take a lot to forgive those who have wronged loved ones….

  18. Joyposted February 28, 2011 at 9:57 am Reply

    That is a beautiful sentiment and neatly sums up what it is like to hold onto hurt and betrayal. I don’t know if it makes it any easier to let go of that hurt, some people go their entire life feeling betrayed but I do think it is a start. Why is it so hard to forgive? I guess if I had the answer I’d be rich and probably still talking to an ex-boyfriend or two!

    This flat bread has me smitten. The fact that you added a layer of cheese then folded it over has me absolutely impressed. Dressed up with a salad by its side you have lovely dinner. Thank you for sharing.

  19. Katerinaposted February 28, 2011 at 9:57 am Reply

    I find it really hard sometimes to forgive people that hurt me or my loved ones. I know that anger is a burden that we shouldn’t be carrying only soemtimes it is difficult to get rid of it! Your bread perhaps will help you forget about it at least for as long as it will take you to eat it!

    I like what you said about forgiveness being something that you do over and over again and each time it gets easier. That’s true, we think that once is all it takes but for deeper offenses it might take a number of tries before we are really able to let go of old hurts. I guess the key is to keep trying.

    Thanks so much for sharing this, Sommer. I too feel that it can be really difficult to forgive certain people. After a while though, it’s good to get closure and to let go, for your own sake. I’m glad you are taking the steps to forgive and be more at peace with the situation. And flat bread is not a bad way to get there, hehe.

  63. Stellaposted March 2, 2011 at 11:17 am Reply

    Your’e so cute and awesome, Sommer. You really are. You know, I have someone in my life like that too. It’s hard to forget and even harder to forgive a serious offense, especially when that offense is towards someone we love. Your friend is right though. His saying reminds me of Sicily Tyson. In one of her movies, her character says that if you stay angry with someone, that they have control over you. I think that’s true too…
    Anyway, your flat bread looks wonderful, Lady:-)
