I lived in misery for thirty years.

Every damn day I burst into tears.

I was angry when my sister was born so I prayed for her to die.

One week later she passed away, it was the only time I saw my dad cry.

I blamed myself day after day when she died.

I couldn't forgive myself no matter how hard I tried.

But after going to therapy, my guilt has come to a halt.

My therapist has assured me that my sister's death wasn't my fault.

The pain and guilt I endured was too much for me to bear.

I shoulde've known that God would not answer such a prayer.

My life is so much better now that my guilt and pain are gone.

I'm at peace and now my life can finally go on.
