As I grew older and wiser in my faith, I began to understand if I wanted to live, I had no choice but to let go. Ironically, what was so simple to understand, yet, challenging to accept was that people continued to live – really live – when I was stuck and stagnant in my walk with God. Letting go was a choice. We have a choice. You don’t have to stay stuck! My healing was in my release. How did I do it? I began letting go of stuff, old, insignificant junk that was of no benefit to my life or my relationship with Christ. I stopped looking for people to own and validate my heartache and chose to own it myself. I acknowledged my pain and took responsibility for how I felt.
Dr. Hart Ramsey said it best, “Embrace the growing version of yourself. You have to grow thru to get to.” I desired to be a better me and chose not to be a victim. I chose not to be a reflection of the pain I experienced. I
refused to be a victim. I chose to grow. Mature. I chose to live.
