I hope the blog speaks to someone.
Scar tissue. Two words that perhaps represent one of God’s greatest creations. It’s very simple. You suffer a deep wound, the body comes together to heal itself, and the only evidence of the wound is this little mark. Scar tissue.
Even though the outer shell is healed, the body is never really the same. It simply makes the adjustments necess
ary to carry on. The same can be said when someone deeply hurts you…abuses you…..discards you…ignores you. They throw the relationship (and sometimes themselves) away like wrapping paper.
We drop the kids off at school, we pretend holidays are special, we “make nice” so that our existence doesn’t infect everyone else’s existence. We all do it. I do it too. I have scar tissue. We all have scar tissue.
Just because the scar fad
es does not mean the hurt does. The hurt can stay for years. Everyone has to wrestle that feeling and sometimes you come to the conclusion that the emotional scar (and you) may never heal. It’s hard. Hang in there.
I don’t have a magic pill of you. Just two bent knees, folded hands, and the side of a bed.
Hang in there.
