Things I Wish I Had Known About Sex

I wish I had known… The emotions that come with having sex (e.g., feeling insecure, vulnerable, a need to please, possessive, etc.). That as a female you can’t separate sex from your emotions, even if you think you can. That girls care more about the emotional connection than the actual …

Silent Cry

Dear Daughter, As I write this letter, tears fill my eyes. I’ve made so many mistakes with my body, my mind, and my heart, all because I did not truly love me.  I don’t know why some people spend their lives struggling to accept who they are, while others are …

Letter From A Young Girl — LISTEN!!

 

Whenever I hear that “you’re not alone” rubbish, it makes me smile. It isn’t a happy smile. I am alone. We are ALL alone. My father saw my cuts once when I was visiting him. When I got home there was a phone call and “dear old dad” wanted to talk to me. He just kept repeating how [only] stupid and useless people cut themselves, so I lied because I wanted to be a daughter he could be proud of, not disdainful of. I live with my grandmother, and she’s the same.

When I leave school next year (if I last that long), I better be successful or my entire family will disown me. And it’s that pressure that really kills, you know? Especially because my father is the reason I cut myself. Well, one of them anyway. He murdered my mother when I was a baby, and he’s in prison now. That’s where he saw the cuts: when I was sitting across from him at a white prison table. I say that I’ve forgiven him, but… how do you even really do that? CAN you do that? I don’t think I can. I’m not strong enough.

My friends are why I’m staying here, not my family, and even they aren’t enough. I haven’t tried to kill myself so far, but I think about it ALL THE TIME, I dream about it. It’s bringing my grades down. I cut so much I feel like I’m going to develop anemia from frequent blood loss. There are little permanent scars on my thighs and hips, and huge ones on my wrist and forearm. I used to smoke, but I quit, so now I drink more than a forty year old divorcee, and I haven’t even seen my friends outside of school in over five months.

So What?

January 15, 2015 Faith No Comments
Kimberly Pothier

SO WHAT you made some mistakes.

SO WHAT you feel like a failure.

SO WHAT they don’t like you anymore.

SO WHAT they are talking about you.

LIVE so no one believes them.

FORGIVE yourself.

FORGIVE them.

MOVE FORWARD!

As long as you are human, mistakes will happen.  Don’t get stuck in your mess. Learn from your mistakes and GROW!  Now….pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try again!

Beautifully Broken

beautifully broken

My Beautiful Warrior,

What you may see as broken inside yourself, I see as beautiful.  I am the One who makes beautiful things out of broken hearts.  I am the same God who took a brokenhearted orphan named Esther and turned her into a queen who saved My people.  Just as I used Esther’s pain for My purpose, I will not waste a single tear you have shed, My love.  I can and will use whatever is broken in your life for My glory.  My love and mercy will shine brightest in those broken places.  I will not only use what is broken, I will rebuild you to become even better and more beautiful than you could ever imagine.

With All My Love,

Your Father in Heaven
