This morning I decided to read the Friend...I love the Friend and always look forward to reading it from cover to cover just as I do the Ensign. So, I came to this story called "Forgetting the Notes" which looked interesting and started to read. The story opens with a scripture..."Let your hearts be comforted, for all things shall work together for good to them that walk uprightly..." (D&C 100:15) I had one of those "AHA" moments...a moment of clarity and understanding. All things...meaning the good. the bad. the ugly. ALL THINGS. As I have endured the trial of being falsely accused and being taken advantage of I have always clung to the scriptures..."The truth shall set you free" and "Pray for them that despitefully use you and persecute you" as a means of reacting in these situations and enduring them. However, that is as far as I got...just accepting that the Lord new the truth and that is what matters most. But, when I read this line this morning I gained a new understanding...EVEN THESE are working together for good in my life...something good is resulting in my life because I am enduring them. I guess those of you who read this will think..."of course" but it has been very difficut and painful for me to find any good coming from losing friendships and being falsely accused...until now. As I read this scripture it brought instant peace and comfort to my some way, some where GOOD will be restored to me through these trials, as I endure them well, of course :)

I love when I get one of those "A-Ha" moments. I am sorry that things haven't been so easy for you, but I am glad that you remember that our Heavenly Father is always with you!

Just reading your post reminds me of the beauty of your spirit. It is true that God is out to teach us something even through miserable situations.
That being said, I find it extremely hard to imagine anyone accusing you of ANYTHING because you are so open and forthright. I have also experienced false accusations and have felt the betrayal and pain that inevitably occurs.....hopefully it is something that WILL resolve itself over time. In my experience time was the great revealer. I love you!!
