About Pain

I just want to share something that I heard:

If you never heal from what hurt you, you’ll bleed on people who never cut you.

The woman I loved had been abused in one form or another all of her life. So when I treated her with respect and looked beyond her past to a hopeful future together, I’m guessing she was thinking that, “If something looks too good to be true, it probably is.” As a result of this, I think she was looking for any and every reason she could to protect herself from getting hurt again.

Almost immediately after she told me she wanted to marry me, she began hedging her bet. She was looking for confirmation from God about whether we were doing the right thing or not. And despite all of the confirmations we received, she continued to look for reasons to doubt.

If the thing that had made her leave me had happened to someone without the pain of her past, I doubt it would have even been a blip on their radar. But, since she is highly sensitized to trauma, the slightest tingle sent her running from me as if I was Jack the Ripper.

I genuinely feel sorry for her and pray for her healing.
