I started therapy for my abuse in December and wonder now why I waited over 25 years. I am felling so much more grounded and my emotions have been fairly consistent now for several weeks and when they are not I have been able to find new ways to bring myself back to a good place.
I owe a lot to the MS site and the men who are here. You all are an inspiration and your stories of surviving helped me see that I am not alone and there is a future.
I was reading the psalms the other day and as I read this one it took on a whole new meaning. (Psalms 37:4-6)
The desires of my heart over the course of my life was to survive the emotional chaos in my head every day. As I have started to heal I am beginning to see other things and my desires are really starting to take shape.
Not sure where I am going with this other than to say that THERE IS HOPE!. I never imagined that I would ever feel normal and as I am continuing my treatment and healing I believe that "normal" is attainable some day.
Anyway... for those of you who might be a bit discouraged this week... hang in there. There is hope. God does have a plan for our lives and it is to be healed.
Psalms 37:4-6 Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday.
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
just a thought
Facing the struggle makes you strong.
