I'm FEELING like the world is against me.
I'm FEELING like I can't do anything right.
I'm FEELING like I'm being picked on by life.
I'm FEELING like a drama queen - I pulled the muscles in my back and thought I was having a heart attack. Seriously, 4:10 in the morning, sobbing uncontrollably, afraid to call and wake anyone out of fear for crying wolf and alienating myself any further.
I'm FEELING as if I'm nothing but a wretched, pathetic person.
I'm FEELING lonely though I requested the separation and sent my child on a two-week vacation to his grandparents' home.
It seems that when I speak that I'm not heard or that what I say is not valued.
I don't know how to move forward on my path and wants and fall back on trusting what others say.
A bout of depression has crept in and I see it and am trying to fight it with my weakened self.
I am so thankful for friends that help me recognize that I'm under attack. Who remind me that this is just what it is, my feelings - nothing wrong with 'em but what I do with them is what is important. I was tempted to wait to post until I could be more chipper, more upbeat, more joy-filled but I'm also trying to be more real in this outlet, to express more of my vulnerability, to get it out. And now, to fill up with the truth. God's word.
Jeremiah 29:11 - Romans 5:5 - Ephesians 5:1 - I Peter 3:18 - 1 John 3:1 - 1 John 4: 8 - 12, 16
Now, to cling to it rather than my feelings...
