Things I wish someone told me while going through a divorce part 1…
I don’t know who this for but it was laid on my heart to share that
YOU CANNOT BE REPLACED!
Read it again and again until it captures your mind, soul, and spirit. Trust me I know what it feels like to think you’ve been replaced!! Key word think!! There is only one you and no one can ever have your grace, style, personality, love, kindness, and all that you are. You are one of a kind a true gift. A gift that God himself knew the world needed. He says in His word that
You were formed, created, and made fearfully!! Walk in that and not what your negative emotions feed you. Not what someone walking away or someone abusing you has done. Know that you can get up, walk in the power of who you are, and enter every room that’s meant for you. You my love were never replaced, you my love, were never forgotten, you my love are worth much more that you imagine.
I wish someone told me this when I struggled to believe these very words. I remember feeling replaced and like I nor my feelings mattered. I looked from the outside remember how I was once the one hanging out, doing groups things, etc. However, I learned to embrace those feelings and replace them with the truth! No one can be Me! No one can love like I do or do anything the way I do it! It took some time but I moved past those feelings through counsel, prayer, hard conversations, and a coming to myself.
Don’t rush time and don’t let anyone rush your healing journey. Give yourself grace and walk in grace with others.
P.S- if you need a listening ear as you walk out this journey of divorce I’m all ears. You are not alone! Feel free to dm for advice, prayer, or just to vent.
