Thank you for sharing these things that I have read at wordpress.
I am honored. I am touched.
I have realized that I am stuck in two of the stages of grieving : guilt and bargaining.
I regret so many things I did as a young mother!
I can’t forgive myself. I won’t forgive myself. I keep thinking I can make it up to my adult kids if I punish myself and grovel enough.
If I punish myself enough, I can somehow make up for betraying my true deep self by the ways I acted as a young mom in the grip of mental illness and addiction. Right?
I need a breakthrough. Please pray for me if you’re talking to God’s right now. 💛
I don’t want to live like this: it hurts too much.
I plan to start lstening to the only sermon I’ve found so far that addresses this without being militarily cheerful
By rt kendall: totally forgiving yourself
Also plan to look again into the writings of Richard Rhorh
Thanks for listening.
