Putting on My Mask

  1. Zach says:

    God doesn’t inflict anything on anyone. For whatever reason, he has allowed you to experience this but he loves you. Perhaps it is out of this that he wants to draw you in closer, to give you a perspective where you can identify with and help others. We don’t always understand his wisdom and rationale and this isn’t a burden you will bear forever. God loves you, always, the broken down, angry, tired, sinning, imperfect you. He loves you on the good days, and the bad too. Meds aren’t masking who you are, they are restoring a chemical balance your body needs to allow the true you to shine through. Like a painter who wears glasses to complete their masterpiece, the glasses don’t define the painting and the meds don’t define you. Chin up lady, the beautiful you is a wonderful person, even in your darkest days.

    Beth I’m so sorry that you have to go through this and there’s nothing I can say or do that will help BUT I do want you to know that you are stronger than most of the entire world! Partly because your experience makes you strong but also because only strong people can endure such trials. Just keep doing it for your kids! If the only purpose of your life was for your kids,which it isn’t, but if that was the only reason, it would be worth it, right?!(most days because sometimes I want to kick my kids butts). I hope so much that doors will be opened and you will either find solutions or just the strength to endure longer. And keep sharing truth because you know in your heart that others experience the same thing and feel like they are alone. Satan wants that. Heavenly Father wants us to love and serve one another and that is done through compassion and understanding…and that comes from raw experience. You are a giant who will stumble(because that’s what life is) but will grow a little bit stronger every time. Remember, we only fail when we quit trying!

    Though you are hurting from this affliction…this writing was beautiful. I, too, have some of what you mentioned and it gets hard at times. Thanks for keeping on at keeping on.

    I feel your pain sister. I hate having to take my meds too but I don’t feel like the real me without them either. I’m praying for you. Hugs?

What do you think?
