Now that the hidden scars are exposed the power your abusers had over you is going away. As you stand up to the memories of your past you have to make another choice. Are you going to identify yourself as a victim keeping the scars out for all to see, searching for sympathy or do you take what you have learned and try to help others. Some of us choose to set an example living with joy and a loving heart not dwelling on the scars of the past.
Living life to its fullest is powerful and a testament to the choice that you are healing the scars. To live with understanding and sharing is my choice. I can help you understand that you can expose your scars and survive the abuse and that with therapy not self abuse or abusing other is your way out of a cycle that you were powerless to stop or control.
Explore your options you can look for therapist through your church, mental health department or by asking someone in the medical field. Knowing that all is possible with God is the comfort that I rely on in every step I take in my life and healing. God will stand with you giving you strength that you don’t even know you have.
We fear the unknown and the change that might take place, I know that education is power and that doors open when we open our minds to the possibilities of positive change. Over coming the fear of asking for help is the first step. Your answer will always be the same if you don’t asks and there are so many waiting to say yes I am willing to help you.
Mind, body and health are all connected giving us everything we need to enjoy this one life that God has given us.
God selected…what the world calls weak to put the strong to shame. And God also selected what in the world is lowborn and insignificant and branded and treated with contempt,even the things that are nothing, that He might depose and bring to nothing the things that are, so that no mortal man should boast in the presence of God.
1 Corinthians 1:27-29
