One of the effects of my abuse was to totally disable my ability to feel love, compassion and any sense of kindness and caring for myself. In fact, one of the effects of my abuse was to set in motion a long term program of destroying any sense of me in an effort to remain safe, to be able only to please.
I've been working on remedying this for decades and have made some progress. But, there is still a long way to go and I do get discouraged at times. Just because I understand it doesn't mean I'm adept at healing it.
Sending you love and support.
Divine Law is not judgment or denial of self truths. Divine Law is honoring harmony that comes from a peaceful mind, an open heart, a true tongue, a light step, a forgiving nature, and a love of all living creatures. Jamie Sams & David Carson, Medicine Cards
