Okay, I know I haven’t been posting on here very often. Hopefully this summer that will change.
Right now I’m struggling with how much of my past/story to really share with people. There’s a lot of pain in my past that most people don’t realize was there. Really only a few people in my life know the whole story. Because:
1. The whole story is scary, I can’t believe how far I’ve come and I don’t want to go back there again.
2. Even though it is a very serious story and a very large part of my testimony, I don’t want people to think that I’m over exaggerating it for drama or attention. I know there are people who have gone through worse, and I don’t want to aggravate them by bringing my own issues into play.
However, over the past few weeks, especially as I prepare to go to college in the fall, I realize where I’ve been has brought me here. And a lot of people could benefit from hearing about what I have been through and how God helped me get through it, and how without Him, I might not be here today.
I’ve mentioned briefly these painful parts of my past, but rarely do I ever go into detail about it. Why? I don’t really know. I guess I don’t want people to think that’s where I am now, because its not. It’s where I’ve been. Here’s to hoping that I never go back.
A few weeks ago I actually went into a little more detail about my story with some girls I didn’t even know that well. And to be honest, it felt pretty good. So maybe sometime soon I’ll gather the courage to tell all 26 of you tumblr followers my entire story, without the spoonful of honey I usually try to feed with it.
