I love when I find time in my day to read some of my favorite blogs. They inspire, provoke thoughts, and sometimes uncover wounds I never knew I had.
While most artists create by adding to something, a sculptor creates by taking away. Michelangelo himself said, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
Now this is a bit off track, but hopefully my two thoughts will merge.
I stumbled across another read titled Grace for the Good Girl: a peek inside. The post captured an excerpt from Chapter 1 of her soon to be released book. This is what caught my attention.
If my story were a planet, then your rejection of me would be a nuclear holocaust.
That statement alone brought me to a halt. I can sense the extreme amount of pain she feels by rejection. The act of rejection has been a major source of pain in my life and something I strive to overcome.
The writer when on further and said “My life tells a small story. I long to be seen, but feel safe when I’m invisible.”
Oh, how do I relate.
As I continued to read, the tears began to flow. I knew she was describing me. It was almost as if her words where a chisel to my heart. Even though I felt pain from the so-called chiseling, I also felt a release. Like a long awaiting exhale, I could finally breathe. The lie I had been living was finally exposed. Now, I eagerly await her book so I can apply the knowledge and the grace so I too can be set free.
