I recently found myself in yet another abusive relationship, and felt I had no other choice but to leave, and file for divorce.
After all the years of counseling, and self-help books, I still ended up married to a man who wanted to dismantle me mentally, devastate me financially and intimidate me physically.
I’m not sure why people do the things they do, why some need chaos and turmoil to be happy…why a person would need to control and hurt those closest to them, just to feel powerful.
What I do know, is how to recover. Over the years of being stuck in this cycle, despite my best efforts to break it, I’ve developed amazing skills at overcoming adversity. At picking up the pieces of my shattered life, walking out with dignity, and starting over.
I’m making a COMEBACK, and with this as my new theme song, I’m starting this online ART JOURNAL.
I have to say that there are things that this man said and did to me, that left some very deep wounds in my heart. To truly forgive him I need to draw close to God, move into HEALING THROUGH ART and let THE LORD mend the broken places.
I’m going to make every effort to make at least two posts a week, sharing with you my progress both emotionally, and in drawing/painting/photography.
Please join me, leave a comment, and help me through this process of recovery. Although for a while I lost sight of who I am, I know with absolute clarity WHO’S I AM.
~Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, and He saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
