I don’t know what gave me this grand idea to document my private moments in my blog; the moments that I’ve been capturing in my blog for years.
I guess it is for people to see me…see even deeper into all that I encounter. To see the stages that I’ve journeyed through over the years. To understand that the road to recovery isn’t an overnight thing, but it is indeed a journey. A very painful journey that comes with more downs than ups.
And it’s hard to look back because looking back is painful.
I had no idea how painful.
I had no idea I would feel different emotions than I felt then; that the pain of old would morph into a newfound, different type of pain. One of sorrow and pity. One where I really felt for myself…as if it hurts more now than it did then.
To go through something is painful, but to have to look back at it – to have to admit just how painful it was – that’s almost downright torture. But I’ve forced myself to open a vessel of vulnerability in order to help someone else. To help someone see that they’re not alone with illogical thoughts. To help them see that Christians also suffer with this painful condition.
Hopefully, as I take you through this journey, you’ll get an understanding of just what it was like. This may be hard for me, but I hope that through this memoir, you and those around you actually find some type of solace in your struggle; whether it’s depression or some other type of struggle, I hope that through my story, you find an inkling of hope that this too shall pass.
