So beyond thankful and happy to hear that there is going to be some progress in getting you away from your father and somewhere safe. I know is is going to be a difficult time, but know that you made the right choice in taking about what has happened and you can start healing from that and I am so happy about that.
Praying for you
Your comment made me laugh, you are too funny!
In all seriousness, I don't see myself as a caring and helpful person. I am also not a teenager, but either way, I really do want to know what is going on in people's lives on this site. Because I have been super down, and do not really have anyone to be real with since I moved to a new town for college.
Anyways, I know that I want to be a better listener. In the past when someone has listened to me and not even tried "fixing" any of my problems, but just was there to listen and be there for me it was maybe even more healing than a situation being "fixed."
I hope you understand I have no intention of being anything but honest here, and I value the time I get to know people on this site when they comment or respond.
With that being said, I do hope you are well and have smiled today. I say that because some days lately, especially since I moved, I don't seem to smile much. Smile for me today if you think of it :)
I look forward to seeing you post again soon. You are important and I know right now it does not feel like that is enough to keep breathing, but take it from someone who has been in your shoes saying the same things you currently are.Be patient, endure this tough season, and come out on the other side stronger than ever before. Prove even yourself wrong. And there is no shame in asking for help.
When I was 16 years old I decided that I needed help and I admitted myself into a Pediatric Psychiatric Unit for a couple days because I knew I was wanting to kill myself, and I wasn't getting better and no one and home was able to help me. I struggled even when I left the Psychiatric Unit, but please know there is Hope.
I am still here. And there is a reason you are still here too. Do not kill yourself. It will not eliminate your problems, it will only eliminate them ever getting better and you will miss the beautiful opportunity of growing through the pain.It is possible even though it is hard,
You are loved, Haley.
Praying you up now.
Haley0945, I am so thankful for you! You are awesome. I really do mean that you are loved. Don't ever forget that Truth.
I'm lifting you up in prayer as we speak. Thank you for reaching out. :)
Thank you for sharing this.
I know this has got to be a very rough time for you personally and for you in your marriage. I'm super proud of you for talking with him about how you have been feeling and what's been on your mind. That's brave, and I know that will strengthen your guys' relationship in the long run.
I love this book called The Meaning Of Marriage by Timothy Keller is you ever want to give it a try. I am not kidding, it is great!
But regardless, I want you to know you rock, and I'll be praying for you and him and for your peace of mind in an emotionally exhausting time in your relationship. Remember you will both get through this together and you will be closer when you do. That is a beautiful thing :)
