I announced a bit ago on instagram that the blog would be slowing down due to unforeseen & life-uprooting circumstances. perhaps someday I will be able to shine a bit of a light on the horrifying, healing, disastrous, delightful, unwanted, unbelievable journey we’re currently on… but as a wise woman once said (love you, G!): write from your scars, not your fresh wounds.
so… I’m just gently taking this journey day by day in the most loving & grace-filled way I know how. we shall see where it leads. 🙂
I’ve talked a little bit in the past about what spiritual abuse is and how we can recognize it & combat it in our faith families.
but today I woke up and decided all I wanted was to offer up a bit of encouragement and hope for those who might be leaving a situation where they experienced spiritual abuse… to those who are trying to heal from the hell they experienced, to those who have walked away & feel completely disillusioned by it all.
10 AFFIRMATIONS FOR SURVIVORS OF SPIRITUAL ABUSE.
- I am loved by someone Higher than my abuser.
- I am safe.
- I am healing, and I will heal.
- I am not their perception of me.
- I am a human being- more precious than their theology.
- I am full of hope.
- I choose to reclaim my beliefs, separate from their lies.
- I choose to believe that God is for me.
- I choose to deconstruct.
- I choose to be who I am.
