Heart Of A Wounded Woman....

He was the father of my children, the watchman (pastor) of my soul. But he lied, and spoke words that would haunt me to this day. The pain cut so very deep that over time it would reshape my life forever. Wounds do heal, but memories last a life time....

Yes, I know what you mean. I loved my children's father much more than he did me. The split was so hard on us all. The memories do last forever, but I refuse to let them hurt me forever. I'm sorry for my children but we have all moved on in the most healthy way we can, that's by talking about it. God Bless you, may God surround you with the "White Light of the Holy Spirit" for healing. You are blessed as I am, always remember that. : )

He spoke words that cut deep because the nature of your relationship meant you were vulnerable. His betrayal hurts, there's no changing that. But did those words come from truth, or from a flawed human being?
There's a space between what life dishes out at us - and how we (eventually) choose to respond. In that space is the control of your life.
I suggest that whatever he said was not from love, not compassionate, and reflected his own flaws - not who you are. I'd be searching for the place inside yourself to treat those words with the contempt they deserve. I'd get indignant. How dare he treat you like that?

Tks. Trust me, I rose above it (him) along time ago..... I give No One Power over me.

Good to hear. But i'm not minimising what you said - memories do last a lifetime...

: ) . Enjoy your night.

Must have been enough to alter the course of your life. I wonder what was said to do that?

Oh yes, it did alter the course of my life. But to know I can see or speak to him without ill feelings gives me a great sense of wholeness.....

Same here, been years but they memories stay fresh for some reason. Glad you are ok with it also :)

: ) Blessing and Peace.

Thanks, peace for our hearts is what we all need :)

Honnor and truth go hand and hand...

Indeed.... Tks.

Wow, does this sound familiar to me. Sorry to hear you went through this also. So true, they do last a lifetime.

It's been yrs since this has happened. But the memories are still there. I made it...... So will U or the person you may know that have experience this. Tks... Enjoy your weekend.

Yep, you hit the nail on the head! We can forgive but forgetting is a super-human effort. On the other hand, if we let that hurt damage us daily then we become responsible for our pain. It isn't what others do to us or what we let them do to us as much as how we then react to it that defines us.

Tks. I must say it was a hell of a journey, but I made it.....

Totally true, I can be my own worst enemy , wallowing in the past. It doesn't happen often but when it does I let it take over so am working on that. I think the older I get it gets a bit easier to take my own best advice .

Well, VoteForPedro, if you trust the source it's easier but many people think they don't have enough this or that to trust themselves! lol

No kidding! Trust your own self, your own intuition and instinct. So many times I did not, to my regret.

If something is not going to serve you well, DONT DO IT! Easy to say, not so easy to do...but give it your all and you should come pretty close.
