You can forgive . . .

I was deeply emotionally hurt today by someone I barely know, not even an acquaintance. Thankfully Jesus protected me from most of it. When I got home I got angry with my wife over nothing and backed off when I realized what was happening.

This person pushed all my inadequacy buttons. They targeted my mental illness as disqualifying me from worth. They framed their questions with the assumption their perceived need was my fault. They disrespected me.

Ahhh. . . but there is Jesus.

What if this person had deep fear, deep hurt or both? What if their coping skill was to seek control of every situation? What if they interpreted me as taking away their control? What if their strategy was to discredit me to gain control?

And Jesus gave me this line of reasoning . . . and resolved my hurt and invited me to replace that hurt with compassion. How did Jesus give me this line of reasoning?

Before there was Freud, Jung, or Maslow . . . there was Jesus.

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.
