From the age of 17-20, I was extremely suicidal. Most people were unaware of this because I hid my inner turmoil behind a big smile. But the pain was real and it eventually became more than I could bear…..
When used properly, feelings can be used to help you move forward in life.
It took me a long time, and many heartaches to learn that “feelings” are not my enemy.
Your feelings are not your enemy. They are messages that inform you about your thought patterns.

This is for those of you who have been feeling alone, neglected, or abandoned.
May the love of Jesus surround you as you walk this journey of life.
For quite some time, my emotional health could be compared to a bottle of soda-pop that had been violently shaken and was waiting to surprise any person who dared to open it. In turn, my emotional pain began to manifest in other ways.
