I'm from the United Kingdom and last year my daughter got beaten up really badly. My daughter is a lovely gentle University student and it has torn the family apart. The person was convicted, but because she admitted liability, didn't have to go throught the British court system. Instead she may have a police record but seems to "have got away with it". The effect on the family has been devastating, but for some reason I can't let go. My anger consumes me and all I want is 'justice' I didn't know I had so much hate in me and all I think about is settling the score. My family don't know, they just think I drink too much, but all I can see is my darling daughter bruised and battered and feel let down so much. What I really want is to just let the vile person who attacked her go. Any tips? Thank you.
Letting go is the key to your current anger which although you may feel is justified... If you keep it on board it will do more harm to you than the person who harmed your daughter.
I am not in a position to tell you how to do that. For we are all different when it comes to letting go. It may be that you don't wish to do so, if that be the case then in my opinion, you will not acquire the peace of mind You need to get over such an ordeal to move on.
Just sharing my thoughts on such matters!
