emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.
this is important because so many people don’t know this
Well, I can stop having panic attacks about not graduating on time. Everything is fixed! I just won’t be finishing my philosophy minor until next semester. Oh well. At least I’m not taking a philosophy course that won’t count for anything.
Often I have heard people say, “How good God is! We prayed that it would not rain for our church picnic, and look at the lovely weather!” Yes, God is good when He sends good weather. But God was also good when He allowed my sister, Betsie, to starve to death before my eyes in a German concentration camp. I remember one occasion when I was very discouraged there. Everything around us was dark, and there was darkness in my heart. I remember telling Betsie that I thought God had forgotten us. “No, Corrie,” said Betsie, “He has not forgotten us. Remember His Word: “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him.” … There is an ocean of God’s love available - there is plenty for everyone. May God grant you never to doubt that victorious love - whatever the circumstances.”
I very much dislike long distance right now.
The secret is many tears, many skype dates, and many sweet, loving words. Seriously. Words has to become your love language cause it’s all you’ve got. It’s definitely okay to cry when it hits you, just so long as you’re not moping 24/7 cause that won’t help.
People who relentlessly complain about missing their significant others when they only go to college 45 minutes away make me want to tear out some jugulars.
While Wesley and I skype and work on homework, his roommate is printing a dragon on his 3D printer for our Dungeons and Dragons game. I like this year so far.
It kind of just hit me that I actually have to do long distance again. I am not a happy camper.
