I don’t know if this will get posted or not.
Sometimes I’m not too sure about this whole blogging bit…I long to have deep discussions…to hear from others that may be facing some of the same issues I am…and yet…I’m terrified to. Scared to share deep thoughts on a public site.
But I’d like to hear from you about being honest and transparent. (send me an email if you don’t want to comment here –firstname.lastname@example.org.)
How do you do it?
How do you allow yourself to be open and real with people around you?
How do you cope, when people that you’ve been transparent with in the past reject you?
Or when you find out that a relationship you really put your all into, the other person isn’t interested in investing the same in building that level of relationship with you.
How do you move on? And how do you allow yourself to try again?
How do you discover who you were really meant to be, who God wants you to be, and aim for that, rather than trying to be the person you think everyone else wants you to be. Or pleasing every one around you.
How can I stop believing lies and really accept myself for who God wants me to be. And believe that He knew what He was doing when He made me the way that I am, with all my faults & failures, when I’ve been programmed to believe that I have to perform a certain way to be loved. And if I don’t get it right, I’m not worthy of being loved.
How do you really begin to build meaningful, fulfilling, and God-centered relationships?
So many questions are floating around in my head…and then I think…maybe I’m the only one who thinks stuff like this…
I found these words from Psalm 146 (end of verse 7 and verse 8) particularly encouraging
The Lord sets the prisoners free;
the Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
the Lord loves the righteous.
All the answers I need are in His Word, I just need to find them. And claim them for myself!
