Statements to Ponder

Posted by heaeliper , 26 March 2013 · 99 views

I don't feel comfortable with not feeling like myself, but I hate myself.
I don't think anyone should endure my life, but I feel in a small way I deserve it.
I hate being angry, yet I feel justified in my anger.
I hate feeling broken, yet all evidence points to this.
I think blind faith is mythical, yet so much of my recovery depends on it.
I don't like relationships that touch me in a way I cannot control emotionally, yet deep down it is all I have ever wanted.
I don't like the status quo, yet I strive for normal.
I love without limits, yet I put up an emotion front.
I want more, yet I am afraid of it.
I can do more, yet I continue to hinder myself.
I am warmed by the efforts of others, yet I question their motives.
I hate lying, yet I lie to myself everyday.

I am a beautiful puzzle of contradictions. Take gentle care.



I identify a lot with these. Especially "I don't like relationships that touch me in a way I cannot control emotionally, yet deep down it is all I have ever wanted.", "I want more, yet I am afraid of it.", and "I can do more, yet I continue to hinder myself."

Thank you for sharing these.

Thank you Kyrie It is good to know that I am not the only one who feels some of these. Please take care and remember you also identify with the last line (beautiful Puzzle of Contradictions)!

Important information

While it is true that I am a licensed psychologist, I am here as a survivor, I do not work for pandys and anything I say should be taken as advice from a survivor and not that of a professional psychologist. Please refer to the crisis information within the site and know that everyone heals differently.

I do not wish to offend anyone reading my blog, however sometimes I cannot express my view by filtering my entries. Please read everything in my blog with care. Please know that I support all of you and I wish you well on your path to well and whole.
