When Intuition Overcomes Anxiety #faithoverfear #intuition #AnxietyDisorders #PeaceInThePain

'Intuition Overcoming Anxiety'. To some it may seem like a concept that is easy to grasp. But to others, including me, maybe not so much. If any of you are unfamiliar with what intuition is (and there is nothing wrong with that), I invite you to look it up as it may help make sense of what I am getting at. Being able to trust and act on your own intuition is not always an easy feat.

If you are part of this community on 'The Mighty', odds are that you have at least some familiarity with Anxiety. Now, you likely also are aware (if you aren't, I invite you to look into it) that 'anxiety' is one thing, an 'Anxiety Disorder' is a whole different ballgame. And it gets even more complicated from there (as in the the individual disorders, the degrees of each, and the individual's own experience of it.

Now, back to the idea of 'Intuition Overcoming Anxiety'. I myself only have my own experience to base what I am about to say on, but I know it is possible, because it happened to me. And I mean, it happened in a situation where even now, I'm not even sure I fully comprehend how, given the physical, mental, and emotional state I was in, I was even able to tune in to my intuition act on it. I do have my own spirituality that I accredit but ultimately, the decisions I made, and the results thereof, showed how my intuition overcame my anxiety.

So, my question for you all is, have you had experiences where your Intuition has Overcome your Anxiety? You are in no way expected to share your story if you don't want to. But feel free to share in the comments if you'd like! Thanks!

What are your strengths during times of crisis?

A lot of people seem to be overwhelmed but I am lucky to be an optimistic guy. My strengths are that deep core positivism and love for life. Also, LOL to be a healthy stubborn Capricorn. And third to find happiness in the small details what the universe gives us. Your strengths are there let them shine. No doubt we are all worried but BE THE LIGHT if you can #strengthwithin

To the ex who I tried to hold on to

I am so mad. Not just mad. I’m pissed. You straight up lied to me. To my face. I asked you and you lied and I not only believed you but you lied for three weeks. I had to ask you to call me to get you to tell the truth. You are a coward and you don’t deserve my love. You have lost that along with my respect. I have defended you. I have lied for you. I have trusted you and forgiven you so many times. When you were drunk, I forgave you. When you lied, I forgave you. When you broke my heart, I forgave you. I am still going to forgive you, but for myself. So I can move on and be happy. I know that true joy lies with the Lord, but you made me believe that I could find some of that in you. I now know that you never meant anything you said. I don’t know if you tried to change and couldn’t or you were just faking it from the beginning, but either way you are not worth my time or energy. I have wasted too much of those things on someone who doesn’t deserve it. You don’t deserve it. What’s sad is that I’m still trying to make excuses for you and stand up for you but I couldn’t see you any clearer that I do right now. You are a coward who doesn’t give crap about me. You chose yourself, you chose to follow your evil, deceitful heart and be selfish, instead of being truthful and honorable to your sister in Christ who has tried too hard to keep you. I tried to keep you safe. I tried to keep you warm and loved. I tried to show you God’s love and compassion. I tried. You kicked me to the curb. You left me on a hanger in your closet just to see if you could fit with me again. You lied. You cheated. You broke my heart. But you know who’s gonna pick up those pieces? My God. The God who shows me endless compassion and grace. The God who sent his son to die for me. My father who loves me no matter what. I pray that you find and know the same love one day. I pray that you open yourself up to listening and living for Him. #Anxiety #Depression #strengthwithin #MyGodissobig #OvercomeAnxity #HappinessCanBeFoundEvenInTheDarkestOfTimesIfOnlyOneRemembersToTurnOnTheLight #iwillbehappyagain

The STRENGTH you never knew you had

For a very long time I thought I did something wrong. I thought I wasn’t good enough and I kept trying to be better. I have realized it was never me that wasn’t good enough...I realized I was actually TOO GOOD for him. 14 years of his abuse has actually given me life. Today I stand up for the things I believe in. When things seem impossible I find the possible. I don’t let him (or anyone else) stand in my way. God answers my prayers in ways I least expected. God has brought me happiness!!! God’s unspoken words to me were”have patience my child”. #strengthwithin #Happiness #Silverlining

Mothers Day Pain #Trauma #Abuse #MothersDay

To the dear people struggling today, you are not alone. Our mothers do not have to define this Sunday. To you who has been through hell and back at the hands of their own mother, I write this for all of us.

In loving your child there should be clearly stated boundaries and bonding when appropriate. What happens if the bonding is used as a tool of manipulation? How far past the boundaries can one mother go? Radical punishments, persistent neglect, crushing words, the list goes on for longer than should be allowed.

There is no one perfect mother in this world, no matter how hard one may try. As if there is some rule lingering over all, no one is safe from flaws. The way you work around those imperfections and give the life you made what you can is a true gift. It is a gift you give those closest to you and hope one day they pass along that deep love you instilled in their very soul.

I don’t think Mother’s Day is a horrible holiday, quite the contrary, I find it wonderful that so many children across our country feel so greatly about their mother. I celebrate these people, for and with. I could never hate those fortunate enough to hold close such a relationship. Does envy strike a flame every year? Of course. This Sunday, when it rolls around, is not meant for all to share with full happy hearts.

It can be a bitter and downright ugly reminder of where we came from. The children of trauma, abuse, and all of the horrifying things that scare normal kids in to believing there are monsters under their bed. For us the monsters walk on two legs and we call them some form of mother. Today is not our day. Today can be painful and bring up unwanted memories and toxic emotions. It may just make one numb. Everyone reacts differently to their experiences.

Society may scream with all of its might that you are to bow with respect today, you are to kneel before your life-bringer… but I am here to tell you to hold your head high. Find comfort in knowing you are not traversing this realm alone in your pain. You have allies in this fight. You have a slew of friends here to help your hands grip the sword should it ever waver.

You are strong and no named day meant for someone’s celebration has to bring you down. Stand tall and hold your inner child’s hand. You and I will make it through today no matter what. We will live to fight another day. To those humans who are heavy today please know that I love you in her place. I will give you a space to talk and an ear to listen. Just stay strong today, not for her as the masses demand, but for yourself. You’ve made it this far on your own and another day cannot stop you. I’m so very proud of you.

#semicolon #Believe #strengthwithin

My friend posted on Facebook a few days ago for all of her friends to "Post any one word or symbol that gives them hope or reminds them that everything they need is within themselves and they are enough". She got about 5 responses. One was mine.
I posted a picture of my semicolon tattoo on my right inner wrist. I got it at a very bad time in my life by someone that was very bad and I do no longer have any connection with, however, that just makes the message even that much more stronger that I was the writer of my own story and I could change the ending.
