The narcissist will accuse you of overreacting when you are hurt by their abuse.

They will ridicule your pain.

They will say that their constant criticisms are meant to “help” you.

They will comment about how “angry” you are when you try to defend yourself.

Today, Jesus once again stood in front of me beckoning for me to place the pain into His waiting hands.

Today He hugged me and whispered that it is not wrong to feel hurt.

Today He reached into my soul and broke off another piece of the pain that pierces my heart.

I was taught to believe I am a worthless, unlovable failure.

But Jesus embraces my soul and tells me:

I know you.

I see you.

I have chosen you.

I delight in you.

I have plans for you.

I love you.
