The wound that religion leaves

hatchingheart

It wounded my heart that after enduring an abusive childhood and youth, I turned to religion, and was told that I was disgusting and repulsive in the eyes of God. To who or what do you turn once you discover that God rejects you? Believing, accepting, and embracing my worth has been the fight of my life. It hasn’t been an easy thing to believe that I am deserving of love. Right now in this moment I feel deep compassion for those who question their worth and goodness. If I had a magic wand, you would know and feel that you are deserving of love. You would look in the mirror, and see a beautiful human being looking back at you, and you’d smile. You would feel the heart of God emanating pleasure in who you are.
