No one knows your true heart but you and God. I’m going to put this out there for those who may be struggling or have been hurt by, often well meaning, people.
I am here to tell you that you are loved, you are accepted, and you are enough. Just the way you are and where you are. Whether facing demons, addiction, or joy filled your worth does not change. One of the things I have struggled most with in dealing with mental illness, other than the illness itself, is the thought that some have that you just have to have more faith to get over it.
Hope and pain can coexist. While I believe my faith is what has kept me alive, it does not take away the struggle with depression. I take medication daily to balance out chemicals in my brain, but I am not any more weak in my faith than someone who takes heart medicine or insulin.
To those who have judged, you are loved and forgiven too. While I do not deny that there are people who bring on their own drama, please do not lump everyone in the same group without knowing or understanding them or their situation. You never know what may be going on for that person. Please help, don’t hurt.
