I would like to say thank you for addressing such a “painful subject”
Unfortunately, I am not at that stage of “acceptance to call it change” rather than immense debilitating loss.
We all take different time frames to process our pain and heal and you are way ahead of me.
I am a “giver not a taker” rather I was before the loss of my income
Car and health.
The only positive thing I have learned from these changes is who are the authentic gems in my life that are full of integrity because their words match their actions.
I’ve had to process how insignificant I became in their lives
I read that ” charchter is how you treat those who can do nothing for you”
I have cried a million tears from this ” truth”
Ex. I picked up a friend every week for 8 years to take her out
Because she couldn’t drive
I saw her four times last year.
I made everyone in my life a priority when they needed help
From helping build a home, painting more homes than I can count, buying appliances for friends when they needed them
I SHOWED UP
I babysat when a family member couldn’t afford a sitter and actually gave up my home for them to live in.
Not once have they called to see what I might need….how about a visit, or have me over for a meal.
No, they had other family members who did absolutely nothing for them …. But then again they are wealthy and I am not.
I know from readings that when
We EXPECT nothing from anyone we are free!
I am getting their one mindfulness step at a time.
Slowly that heart break is mending and the reality of my insignificance in their lives is too.
I’ve let go of those friendships
Three friends I had for almost 40
I only want people in my life that are authentic.
It’s a gift
Because I know they are in my life because they love me!
It’s that plain and simple!
To those who I can no longer help and don’t bother with me.
It’s humbled me and I’ve had to work very hard on ” not feeling so worthless”
God’s lessons are painful but when you heal you see that they are gifts!
It’s taken me a long time and I’m still not 100 percent their
But I am working daily on only have forgiveness in my heart for them.
again, my worth should not be
Placed by how others choose to treat me!
Every day when I do my readings
I become a little wiser and heal a tiny bit on this journey
