Breathe and Believe

IMG_0861How many times have you believed something bad about yourself because someone else said it ?What if you were a child and heard it over and over again and why would someone who loved you and was your “protector ” tell you a lie? and isn’t it a sin to tell a lie?

And that was another thing, going to confession. believing if you let a boy kiss you,you had done something very bad. All the while,you were so bad that when you were saying your ten hail mary’s you were also wondering what the nuns did with about their “impure feelings”.  There again, the church said you were bad and you needed to confess, over and over again.

Except why didn’t you confess what really happened? Because you knew there were secrets you were not supposed to ever tell, that’s why. Family secrets, or things that would upset the family dynamic .  So you kept it all inside, locked down deep inside.  Like pushing garbage in the garbage pail down with your foot. STomped down deep.

here is what i know now

None of that is important anymore and really none of it was every important because you are good,you are beautiful and you are loved. Breathe and Believe…

I can close my eyes and love that little girl now. I can tell her she is good, and pretty and kind and has compassion. Only I can truly wipe away her pain.

The healing comes slowly, and if i could share anything at 63 it would be to not wait so long to love yourself.  Nothing bad anyone ever said meant anything about how any of us really are.  Let it go..

Breathe and Believe
