But I am not searching from the depths of despair or from a negative place in my life.
Just a periodic self-check that I think is necessary and good.
I am so grateful for the abundance....and so hyper-aware that this is position of responsibility.
I don't get into a dark place when I acknowledge my families' 'dark secrets'; in fact, I am very open about the topic because I know that my experience is one that many other people have experienced. I open up and find that others who have had similar experiences with family members are able to open up for the first time. Because they feel embarrassment and shame, they have kept silent...and when I open the door to my story, they feel freer to let go of that and experience the freedom of the release of all of those oppressive feelings. I know that by sharing my experience.....I give others the opportunity to vent, ask questions, learn and let go of their secret shame.
I feel that I have a RESPONSIBILITY to share and that God leads me to others who need to hear my story.
Yes...my simple outfit post took an unexpected turn; but perhaps it is for the benefit of someone else.
