Finally….

Standard

It feels like I’ve been punched hard in the gut.. I feel tired, oh so tired.
Words wound. Laughter at me, at my sacred self hurts.. Why can’t you see it hurts me? Why can’t you treasure me and not make me feel like this.. I’m ashamed to tell anyone as if it’s my fault.. Ashamed I cannot stop it from happening.. Ashamed somehow that I deserve it because I cannot be treated right.. Like I invite it or cause it or don’t stop it…
I shrink low.. I cower and hide and try to forgive.. I will forgive. But it hurts..

You don’t know how it hurts.. For a moment of laughter can come hours of pain.. I try to just shrug it off but it happens again and again and I flounder.. I fail.. I go down like water pulled into a drain..

Please protect me from being made fun of. See me and the way I live and realise I need love too. I need acceptance always especially when I fall, when I fail, when I’m human. See that sometimes it is funny but sometimes it’s not.. I fear hurting you. That somehow I don’t matter.. That these feelings are wrong but they are still there. I feel embarrassed that I’m not stronger so I am brave here telling you.. I don’t want to be the victim anymore..

Lord help me. Help me to rise again.. Help me heal again. Hold me and help me not to shatter.. Release me from the poison of bitterness, depression and self pity.. But help me be brave and speak..
Help me to believe that I do matter, this is real and it does hurt and thank you at long last I’ve written this..
Amen

About eternalpeacechild

I'm a 47 year old single mother of 6 children, 2 currently live with me & 1 in heaven. I am an expressive soul, love GOD, love life and enjoy blogging, creating art journals and social media. I find my world opens up & expands online because I'm hearing impaired ( so severe now I call myself deaf) so I cannot communicate with others in the natural as I would like too.

  1. “I fear hurting you. That somehow I don’t matter.” — I have seen this place. Over and over and over. I have found there is great power is walking away. Not in the sense of a fight-or-flight response. But just a quiet, deliberate decision to seek the company of the wise and loving. Because we can’t change people. Certainly not the people who hurt us.

    Thank you for openness.

    • Thank you yes your right there are some that we must shake the dust from our feet and walk away from.. Yes yes seek the company of wise and loving people! And sometimes family is not flesh and blood but spirit and truth and most definitely love..
