Releasing the pain:

Photo by Philip Barwikowski on

I honestly feel like I have had so much weight lifted off of my shoulders. I’m very low key when it comes to my feelings. You may say that’s not true because I write how I feel, yes I do but I keep a lot of my feelings inside. Because I don’t like judgment or criticism. But yesterday I felt compelled to speak my heart with my husband and tell him all that I have been feeling. A part of me was fearful that he wouldn’t understand and just look at me differently. But he didn’t he totally understood and supported me and even said that we should talk like this more. WOW, a huge weight dropped at that moment. I’ve always had to be strong and keep my feelings to myself. I mean things that have truly hurt me from my past that has nothing to do with my husband. And there are things that I’m trying to learn and understand to help me move forward and be the wife that I want to be. It was encouraging that when I told him I wanted to go to counseling he was in agreement. I don’t know why I was so afraid to open up to my husband. He knows about my past but he doesn’t know how it’s still bothering me. This is one step in my journey of being a better me and having the time to journal, think, pray and have open honest conversations.

  2. Well done! That takes a lot of courage to open up like that and make yourself vulnerable, but you took the first (huge) step – I’m so glad your wonderful husband accepted, listened and wanted to work together with you through your feelings. Your relationship will only grow stronger.
    It is hard to be open and vulnerable, lies we believe about ourselves can play over and over in our minds until a complete falsehood becomes our truth and steals our joy. Don’t believe the lies that are whispered to you! You are a strong beautiful woman with a husband who loves her very much! When the lies try to sneak back in, combat them with truth ❤
