I realized something today...
Life is too short to let pain consume your soul.
I'm not going into any details about what brought this on, or how it has affected my life... the people who really need to, will understand this post, when and if they read it.
For everybody else, I'll just say this...
Everybody in this world has their own ideas of what "right" and "wrong" are. If somebody hurts you in the course of doing what they truly believed was "right", even if you don't agree, or if you know that their decision was based on information which was skewed, incomplete, or otherwise incorrect, then there's no point in hanging on to the pain. Let it go.
At some point, any emotional pain will start to feed on itself, where just feeling that pain makes you hurt even more. It can even reach the point where the original cause of the pain is almost meaningless, and the pain exists for its own sake. This can be hard to recognize, especially when your thought processes are being affected by the same pain. Let it go.
