A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

"Friend of a Wounded Heart" ~ Wayne Watson

In the late 1980's and early 1990's, I used to blast this song because it spoke to my broken heart and the "faking" being okay. I've been thinking about it lately...still speaks to me, but I now know how badly scarred I am and how much Jesus has touched my life. I know of no better comfort except for when I need God with skin. Then, He provides someone when I least expect it if I ask Him to and even when I don't he meets my needs. For me, I am ever so thankful that I had a therapist during this period of my life that I just shared...it was the first time that I every spoke to anyone the details of my self injury. Before, I was "okay." Right? (I know this song is a Christian song, but take a chance and listen to this song or read the lyrics...it just may touch you in a way you that you need.)

clueless,

As i have mentioned before, religion is a trigger for me because it was used to frighten me into being what my mother wanted me to be. However, I usually trust what you put on you blog as lifting me and not triggering me. This was again the case. Thank you.

Tamara, gosh you trust me that much...I put stuff up that triggers me. Because of the cult stuff that I've been talking about in therapy, religion has been a trigger for me. But, it is specific to comments that either twist who God is, is not the whole truth or is their own issue or projection. I just get enraged. Not like a righteous enragement, but a really deep deep anger like I want to hurt the person. It is tough because I know most do not have any idea of what they are saying or that they use religion to hide from really dealing with thier issues.

Anyway, I'm glad that you were uplifted.
