Part I: Holding On…
How long has It HAD YOU…
You know, that thing you’ve been holding on to…that heartache… that heartbreak you felt when they……….
It’s been almost 20 years since I stood in my cap and gown for my graduation from Bonnabel High School in Kenner, LA…
I made it!!
Robbed of my childhood by alcoholism with my father and crack cocaine with my mother, taken from my parents at age 11 by child protection, and placed in the loving arms of my grandmother… Whew!!
It was a rough start, but there I was…
Full of excitement about heading to Lafayette, LA for college… full of sadness, disappointment, and hurt because my mother did not show up for my big day.
Unfortunately, this was just one of many more disappointments to come as I faced other “big days,” challenges, setbacks, obstacles, and hardships without the love and support of my mother or father.
THERE IS NO PAIN LIKE THE PAIN OF REJECTION… NO PAIN LIKE THE PAIN OF BEING ABANDONED!!
I am convinced that kind of pain is what sends SO MANY PEOPLE into unhealthy relationships with other people, food, sex, drugs, gambling, and ultimately…UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEMSELVES!!
Have YOU ever been down this road? If so, let me assure you, THERE IS HELP, THERE IS HOPE, & THERE IS A WAY OUT of this endless cycle of self-inflicted wounds.
Life Coaching Tip #1: Take Responsibility for Your Own Healing Journey!
I’m sorry if this sounds insensitive, but take it from me…NOTHING WILL CHANGE UNTIL YOU DECIDE to stop looking for everyone else to understand you… comfort you… fix you… heal you…
IT’S UP TO YOU NOW!!
I want you to take a good hard look in the mirror and say, “ENOUGH!!”
“I will NOT WASTE another day…”
“I will NOT GIVE UP another week, month, or year of my life LIVING IN YESTERDAY!!”
“I will NOT spend any more time FANTASIZING BOUT WHAT USED TO BE or WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN…”
“TODAY I CHOOSE to ACCEPT that I CANNOT CHANGE WHAT HAPPENED to me or how I have chosen to deal with it in the past.” BUT “I have EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE what I do about it TODAY, TOMORROW, & FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!!”
Well… Did you like the sound of that??
CONGRATULATIONS! If you’ve made it this far, you’re off to a Great Start in Letting Go & Letting God…
