At a time that I judged myself the most...my sisters supported me the most!💕 Being in a Christian marriage with abuse can be such an alienating experience because not only do you feel the normal feelings of anger, doubt, depression, anxiety and fear...you also feel the added fear of rejection from those around you because you want to do the very thing that goes against your beliefs...LEAVE!😖😖😖 I was scared to share with ANY of my friends because I thought my non-churchy friends would just tell me to leave and my churchy friends would just tell me to stay & work it out....and the scary thing about that was that I agreed with both of those statements!!😫 Sharing with anyone just led to more questions that I had no answers to....so I kept it to myself....much to my offenders delight! By protecting myself in the outside world, I was also enabling him behind closed doors! 😠 #betweenarockandahardplace 💩
Until finally I couldn’t take it anymore & I opened up to my churchies; and even though the fear of their rejection was great - the need for their love, support and faithful understanding was greater! ....and boy was I surprised by the response I got! ...Instead of the judgement, lectures and rejection that I feared...I got love, support, prayer and practical help for my situation! I will always remember that day...it was a major turning point for me! 🦋
The moral of my story is this: Don’t let fear lead your steps & learn to not only recognise, but also utilise the blessings that God places in your path. ❤️💋 #overcomingdomesticabuse#roadtorecovery#selflove#noteveryonewillunderstand#sistersinchrist#findyourtribe#domesticabuse#verbalabuse#emotionalabuse#spiritualabuse#financialabuse#gaslighting#narcissism#itsreal#yourenotalone#ibelieveinyou ❤️🦋❤️ #love and #marriage#christianmarriagesarehardworktoo ✌️
#tb to these peachy roses 🥀... I dunno why I’m posting this... I sincerely don’t know where my head is at the moment... whether whatever goes on inside my head reflects the reality of the situation or I’m just making a narrative up coz I desperately want it to be true... I guess that’s what I need to figure out... whether my subjective perception aligns with the outer going ons of the world around me... 🤷🏽♀️🎱🗝🔮#BetweenARockAndAHardPlace#INeedANewFrameOfMind#FreedomPlease
