I just recently went through some personal issues with my family, which I won’t go into details about, but it had me so upset I mean just really angry. Some people will never understand the position of a mother. Mothers sacrifice more than anyone I know.
We live our lives to please others and most often we are the most overlooked, under heard, taken for granted, abused, misused, abandoned, lied to, cheated on, and just all around mistreated. I don’t think everyone can handle being a mother. It takes a special kind of person.
We as mothers were built for the position. We have something in us that was not there before we became mothers, and as soon as we gave birth it automatically kicked right in, the necessary tools to deal with life’s issues. I’m not saying that it’s easy, I’m saying we have what we need to make it, to conquer it, and to get through it.
I’ve always heard that God will not give us more than we can handle, and I am a firm believer of this, because even in our darkest hour, our most trying and difficult situations, we find a way to cope and eventually fix it. WE ARE AWESOME CREATURES!
I feel like giving up sometimes, I get so angry and frustrated and tired. I want to run away and leave and never return, but the love that is inside me will not allow that to happen. I start to feel compassion and mercy for those that hurt me and I say to myself nobody is perfect, and certainly no family is perfect. So I immediately forget about myself and my feelings and start to focus on theirs.
Honestly when you do this you actually feel 100% better, you have just then released yourself of all that trash that had you feeling so bad. I mean let’s face it there is a lot I could complain about, trust me a whole lot, but I would rather show God gratitude for blessing me with a family. I am not alone, and I love my family.
I have come to the realization that I appreciate everything, the hurt, the disappointment, the love, all of it. I would much rather be better not bitter, I would rather love not hate, and I would rather be free not bound from the things and people that constantly hurt me, forgive those that hurt you, it’s not for them it’s for you. The very moment we forgive we release it all and become free of whatever has us captive. Remember this, some of the most beautiful diamonds in the world were made under extreme pressure!
