The worst thing about trauma, in my opinion, isn’t the pain. Pain comes and goes. The worst thing about trauma is the fact that it can alter you, permanently. Trauma makes people paranoid, suspicious, irritable, sensitive, guarded, defensive or reclusive. When you’ve been hurt, a small part of you begins to see people as potential sources of pain. A little bit of innocence evaporates every time your heart is broken. A new mindset begins to crystallize. Resolutions based on that situation begin to take shape. Habits begin to change ever so slightly. Prejudice might bud too. You begin to put your value system subconsciously on a weighing scale, wondering if who you are is what the world needs and begin to make alterations according to your interpretation of the agony. Sometimes we think we’re growing but we’re just weaving ourselves into beautiful, numb, functional and smiley cocoons so that we never have to feel anything so intense again.
Hi! Welcome to my blog.
I’m a mum, a pastor, counselor, writer and lover of Jesus!
I run The Grace Well by God’s grace-a women’s prayer ministry and Imana Initiative, a youth outreach.
I believe we are God’s masterpiece, created in Christ before the foundations of the earth to have an abundant life of significance! We are God’s song and dance. We are the light and love the world is in need of!
I would love to share my journey of self-discovery with you, how I’ve found my place and my journey of growth.
I’m so glad you found this blog!
