It never ceases to amaze me, the things that people go through in life. It is an honor to have people feel so comfortable with me that they share their tragedy, their loss, there deepest fears, and it is even more of an honor to see them push through, continue on, work through difficulties, and succeed.
While you are here I want to tell you; “Never let anyone tell you that your feelings are wrong!” How you feel is how you feel, and 100% of the time, people have appropriate feelings. Any feeling or thought you may have is totally okay. However, I also want to tell you that if you are full of anger and hurt, depressed or afraid, or in any other negative state, you do not have to continue feeling that way! There is a big difference between these two statements;
– You shouldn’t feel that way.
– You should feel what you feel right now, but you don’t have to feel that way forever!
Work through it, process it, if you cannot do it on your own, get some help. It is pretty normal to feel all alone when we feel bad. Intellectually we know that others have gone through the same experiences, but this is us we’re talking about here! So we don’t share it, we don’t talk about it, we just keep it bottled up inside. This is when our feelings get into the “unhealthy” zone. It isn’t the feelings that are unhealthy, it is the fact that we are continuing them, allowing them to keep us back and hold us down, that is unhealthy.
They say “Nothing happens in God’s world by mistake”. Do you believe that? Most often, people who are troubled say that they do believe this, and the real trouble is that they, themselves don’t understand what is going on. “Why did God do that?” “Why is God doing this to me?” these are the questions that we need answered.
I have learned that just because I don’t know the answer to a question, does not mean that there isn’t one. “Seek and you shall find.” If you do not seek, you shall not find.
Many blessings to you,
