When I posted the Mother’s Day article, I neglected to write that I don’t feel like shit on Mother’s Day anymore. This is how I used to feel. I posted the article to help others who have been through what I used to experience every Mother’s Day. I had a beautiful Mother’s Day this year. I spent the day in nature, and took some great photos (my form of creative expression).
I was inspired to write the article because I want to help others to know they are not alone, to honor their true feelings, and to know it is normal to feel badly on a day that is hammered at us as a ‘wonderful day for families and loving mothers.’
After posting the article, I received a comment by someone who wrote that I am “miserable and narcissistic” for writing the article.
It was my mistake for not making it clear that I have healed the Mother’s Day issue. So I want to say thank you to the anonymous commenter for bringing that to my attention.
I value my time more than money. I could be doing hundreds of things with my time -things that would not involve the tough subjects discussed on my Blog, and things that would make me feel much more self-satisfied. The only reason I spend my time and efforts on this Blog is to HELP others who have suffered, are suffering, need validation, need resources, need information, or just need to know they are not alone.
I was given a gift by God and my therapist. I was given life. I was given joy and freedom and the end of years of suffering. My Blog is to now help others to be able to experience the same thing by providing her contact information.
Yes, I was once miserable. Thanks be to Jesus I have healed 95% of my problems and very close to being fully healed.
If it is considered “narcissistic” to post what I do, then so be it. I will continue to be whatever it is I am. I will continue to be true to myself, and with that, to happily accept the labels and name-calling.
