I always hear the saying “I’m unbothered”, and I think, why did you feel the need to tell the world that? Then I found myself about to write this long social media post about how I was good on all the people who left me. I was good on all the people who turned against me or left me behind. I was writing it in my head as I looked for my phone. But y’all guess what God did?
He stopped me in the kitchen, the Holy Spirit said, but you are Not Good. You are hurting and in pain and until you admit that, you can’t heal.
Guess what I’ll be doing the next few weeks? You got it, I’ll be taking the steps toward HEALING ❤️🩹
I’ll be allowing myself to feel the hurt and all the other feelings so I’m not trapped by these feelings. I’ll be thankful for the people who didn’t abandon me physically and emotionally. I’ll be thankful that God does not allow me to cover those things that I don’t want others to see. I’m not always OK and that’s ok too. I’ll be letting these things go so I can receive love and give it freely. I can’t be free if I’m captive to hurt, pain and false pride.
I’ll take the time to heal so I can break the cycle of hurt people hurting people.
“The Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
2 Corinthians 3:17 ERV
“My brothers and sisters, God chose you to be free. But don’t use your freedom as an excuse to do what pleases your sinful selves. Instead, serve each other with love. The whole law is made complete in this one command: “Love your neighbor the same as you love yourself.” If you continue hurting each other and tearing each other apart, be careful, or you will completely destroy each other.”
Galatians 5:13-15 ERV
