Broken hearted

Right now my heart is aching and all I want to do is cry. I'm remembering everything my dad did all at once. It's breaking my heart and I don't want to eat as a result. My heart is aching and breaking for everything that other people did to me up to this point.

dear sweet saved by grace

My heart goes out to you and weeps for you. My heart breaks for you and is burdened for you. What I am going to do is give you several Bible verses and just sit by you figuratively and sit by you and be silent and pray as you read these verses. These are Truth and are True even if the enemy of our souls wants us or you to not believe them by filling your head with doubt and unbelief. Tell him where to go and begin to believe the Truth. God is Truth and does not lie. So I will send a few verses and sit with you for a few minutes and pray for you.

"The Lord is near to the broken hearted and saves the crushes in spirit." Psalm 34:18

"Come to Me all who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest". Matthew 11:28-30

"Cast- or throw as hard as you can- your burden on the Lord and He will sustain you." Psalm 55:22

I didn't write out the full scriptures. I hope these bring comfort. Stand your ground. Have you heard about putting the armor of God one every day? Take your ground, and stand firm. Take back the ground that the enemy has stolen. It requires some effort but God gives you the strength and ability. It is war. We are in a battle. We have the King of Kings as our Chief Warrior fighting for us.

I will sit now and pray for you. Your friend in Christ.

Thank you

I truly appreciate it. It's not like I'm accountable to anyone anyways, so why should it matter? I don't feel like I matter. I feel like I've been through too much, and those trauma lessen my worth. I'm tired and exhausted from everything, from fighting.

Hi Savedbygrace, you do

Hi Savedbygrace, you do matter so much and going through trauma does not make you less of a person in any way. I know it's easy to get discouraged, you just have to remember how far you've come and all of the progress you have made. I know everyone here on the forums values you and appreciates all of the help and encouragement you give to them.

Please remember that you're important, and that we're all here for you!

I am sorry you feel this way

I am sorry you feel this way and i am struggling with similar feelings. trauma is painful and hard to go through and sometimes the memories are too much and too much pain and just there is not much to stop the thoughts. my best wishes to you. you have come so far don't let this take you back you are cared about and loved just remember that people care and want you to be happy and healthy. trauma takes its toll but we are survivors remember that.


Hi, I am sad that you too are suffering so much as well. May I suggest that you re-read the post you sent to Savedbygrace and apply it to yourself as well. You are love, are special and the abuse doesn't define you. You were created for God by God to be loved You are unique and special. There is only one you. You have a purpose and a Destiny. You can do this. Never give up Hope. Post as much as you need to. iwanttolive

Thanks just a difficult time

Thanks just a difficult time as nightmares have ramped up recently and just exhausted but I should listen to my own advice


Right now I am having flashbacks. I had a pretty intense nightmare last night. Getting my hair done was amazing.


I'm sorry you are having a hard time. Sending you lots of hugs to help you feel better. I'm glad getting your hair done was amazing. I hope you have a better day. Hugs

Feeling stupid and worthless

I don't deserve anything good in life. I'm worthless and useless and stupid. I don't deserve to eat.


After this marriage, I'll never get married again. Right now I'm tired of any man.
