kajel: (Me)
Do we prosecute her or not? After all the lies, the betrayal and everything, I think we should. I know you’re worried about her husband and kids. I understand the hesitation. I had those thoughts too. In her apology letter, she tried to reinforce those thoughts. It’s one of the ways she manipulates people.

Does it help to know the officer told me she will only receive fines and community service? Even after all she has done, I don’t actually want her to go to jail. She has to know that there are consequences for her actions. Why should we compromise our values to protect her family.

What happens if we let this go? You know that she will do it again. The next person might not be as savvy as us. She can do so much damage. If she has a record, she may think twice about doing this again. That's what it boils down to. We let her go; we live with the knowledge she will do this to someone else when we could have stopped it.

We’ll need to stand tall and be firm through the end. We’re strong, we can do this. I’m not anyone’s bitch to be used this way. Kindness does not equal weakness. I will never be a doormat for anyone.
