Most say, leave the past in the past.
I’m going to say something a little strange. I like to be a rebel, I guess. 🤪
Sometimes the past needs to come forward.
You have to face your past so you can participate in the present.
No, I don’t mean you dwell there in the past. Don’t continue to rehash the same old thing. Face it, Conquer it, THEN MOVE ON!
I know you are scared to ask your family member the question. Why did they do that? Why did they allow that to happen to you? I know deep down you know the answer, but you still need to HEAR the words.
So ask the hard question that you think you already know the answer to. God is right there with you. He is your strength!
Grab your journal and write out how much anxiety that brings you; thinking about asking that question.
Then once you ask, you will realize you’re okay. You did the thing. You got the answer. Then write down THAT feeling in your journal.
Sweet friend, you are so much stronger than you give yourself credit.
I’m proud of you.
Blessings and Love,
