Have you ever been in a dysfunctional relationship? The kind of love that makes you doubt the very core of who you are? The kind of love that damages you? Leaves you believing negative things about who you are?
Dysfunctional love played a major part in who I was and how I loved for many years. I didn’t know how to love. Why? Because I held on to so much baggage that it distorted my views about love. I had to learn to forgive myself and truly see me as this wonderfully and beautifully created child of God. That forgiveness allowed me to move into a different realm and out of the dysfunction.
It wasn’t easy. It was hard. I suffered many setbacks on the road to healing. I ruined many relationships because I was choosing self-destructive people like myself. It was in examining my life that I was able to see where I went wrong and unwind myself from the dysfunctional love and be able to embrace true love.
