Today I was compelled to write a to y’all about eating disorders. It is known that you can PERMANENTLY damage your internal organs by taking too many laxatives. Don’t do it on a regular basis. The good thing is that it would take years of abuse to do any real damage. *Though I would also say you should be careful of abuse by people who work in kitchens at restaurants and think its funny to put it in your food. Especially if you already have a sensitive stomach - Some young people these days have a hard time thinking things through & have a hard time discerning reality from fantasy. That’s a different story back to what I wanted to say.*
I know that sometimes people can make you feel little. Well okay sometimes they try their darndest. Most people like that make you feel that way have issues themselves. Today I learned about Lucretia. Her story was heart breaking. That story gives you the fuel that you need to FIGHT to LOVE yourself. Don’t let some self-hating HYPOCRITE tell you you don’t Love yourself. They are so busy hating themselves & trying to mess you up the same way they messed themselves up that they don’t know the first thing about who you are. I say to you be strong. Remove yourself from those people. If you are being abused, bullied, shunned, talked about, have been abused, lied to, lied on, cheated on, raped, etc ITS NOT YOUR FAULT! The problem is not you. You may also want to draw on the story of St. Anthony. He was tormented by demons while in the wilderness trying to do God’s work. I would say if you are relentlessly pursued by people who have nothing better to do than to try to make you feel little to make themselves feel better. Pray and read about some of the other people of the church. I also learned about the legend of Pope Joan, but that doesn’t really fit into what I’m trying to say.
If you see your rapists face everyday you can tell them NO I won’t let you intimidate me. You may make me uncomfortable for a time being, but you don’t run anything here! Tell them who you are! I AM A CHILD OF GOD! I am more powerful than ANY hateful plan you have. My Heavenly Father wrote me a Love letter. 1 John 4:4 “You, dear children,are from God and have overcome them,because the one who is in youis greater than the one who is in the world.”
So I would say keep praying. Stay covered in God’s armor. Read the Bible. Tell your haters that they are only showing you how small they are in their own eyes because they are trying to pull you down. You only seem so big to them or sit so “high on your horse” because you are fortified with the Love & power of God.
No long drawn out post today babies. I only had an hour, but know that if no one else Loves you God does and I do. Be blessed.
