What to Do When Youíre Alone at the End of Your Rope

Saturday, July 28, 2012

Sometimes your strength is gone, and more than that your desire to even try anymore is gone. Plus you feel so alone. It's like you're hanging by a thin rope over a cliff, and no one is hearing your cries for help. What do you do? Here's what I figured out!

    DETERMINEDBABE - Without the bad, we would not know what the good is. Since I've come to have a relationship with Christ, I can say that there hasn't been a trial; small or large, that I haven't felt blessed by in the end. There have been times when I felt truly thankful for what I was going through. God is so amazing. Many blessings to you and your family. HUGS

    I have been at that point not long ago when my life was falling apart and I just asked GOD to take me every day before I went to sleep and every morning I would ask again but GOD's timing is perfect and his love and faithfulness showed me his grace and power. GOD got me through the darkness and strengthened me once I stopped struggling and just let go completely.

We all have trials that seem to never end but those are just lies evil is using to try and distract us and make us doubt and fear but Christ concurred the world..the victory is won....all we need to do is believe in Jesus and share in his victory.

Peace and joy when the world is falling apart because that just means Christ is coming....Our Loving Savior is ever faithful and knows how to take care of what is his!

Jesus never said we wouldn't suffer because Christ suffered and we are one with Christ! What is coming is worth it though!

We need fellowship so keep encouraging each other....GOD bless you all!

    MEDDYPEDDY - Thank you for reading, and I very much appreciate the feedback. I hope you are blessed by it in some way. As human beings there will be times in all our lives that our strength is completely drained (psychologically and spiritually speaking; even physically sometimes too). The way to gather strength is to focus on Jesus. Nothing else can fill us that will last forever. Only Jesus. Many blessings to you. AMEN.

Learn to Let the Stars Lead

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Remember those dark skies I mentioned in the last Worship Melodies blog post?! Did you look up? Did you see any bright stars? God is always there for you, to help you see them when you can't. Here's the journey I am in and how God helped me to see the patterns in the stars, and how He is leading me with the brightest Star.

I Need Help

Friday, July 06, 2012


It's not often any more that I write a blog on here, like in my first couple years on SP; where I spilled my life. You helped me more than anyone ever had. Then safety became a factor, so I had to go back and delete most of my posts. It broke my heart, but I copied them into a private journal (including all the wonderful comments). Usually I write messages to help everyone else, but this time I need... something. Maybe advice, a sounding board, a shoulder to lean on, a place to vent. I'm not sure which of these it is.

My church is the center of my world, but somethings changed. It was my safe place; my happy place. Sunday's were my favorite day of the week. My days volunteering in the office, and the bible studies and such programs that I took part in filled the rest of my week. And, I was doing it all because of how much I love Jesus. For the first time I was stepping out of my comfort zone. I was opening up; starting to shine. Now, it is a place of pain for me. I come home each time and have a bad Bipolar crash.

Back in February I had a falling out with my spiritual counsellor, and close friend, who goes to my church. It sent me into a breakdown, and then another, and another... It was a nasty tailspin to say the least. Then, about a month later I found out that my confidence had been broken. My ex-counsellor had talked to someone. This sent me into a worse tailspin than the original break up. I've had several big trauma's this year; all tracing back to the first blow up... and all of it connected to my church, but it doesn't end there.

Just when I finally gathered strength to talk to my ex-counsellor about all of this, in an attempt to put the past in the past; I also finally got the nerve to open up to someone. This friend's heart was in the right place, I believe, but my doctors have since helped me see how damaging the things were that this friend said. As a result of my friends 'advice', I went to the meeting with a bad attitude; and again, it went badly. The meeting was short lived, we argued almost immediately, and I was kicked out.

I realized today that my hardest crashes are not always after I've seen my ex-counsellor; though those are still sometimes difficult. They're after I've talked to my friend, who says negative things about my counselor. To add to that I'm told that my way of doing things, about so many things, is not the right choices; which I hear as "you messed up. You're broken. You're not acceptable." My friend makes me feel bad about myself, but I have to see this person no matter what day it is, or why I'm there. Plus it's all backed up with classic mental health stigma when I'm told "It sounds like you're just in a pity party." I have Bipolar Disorder. That's a medical condition, not a low self-esteem!

A couple months later, I was requested to attend a meeting with my ex-cunselor and the pastors. All those authority figures, and me. It was meant to help and support me, but went very badly. I had more breakdowns in the following weeks. It turns out that my abusive past was subconsciously a factor. Doc says that my reaction was "classic transferrence of fear by an abuse victim". Doc said my ex-counsellor, as a professional, should have realized this would happen; but didn't. The meeting never should have happened.

Before February, I was meeting with this spiritual counsellor weekly; plus with my doctors for therapy every 6 to 8 weeks. I was doing well on this regiment. After the original insident, my therapy went to weekly for awhile; now I'm going every 2 weeks with my doctors. But I don't have my spiritual counselling any more, and it is hard to deal with.

My doctors tell me that I was victimized. It bothers me. I hate that word; victim. A victim because:

emoticon of the conditions behind why my spiritual counselling ended (things that I can't talk about on here; but it was a nasty situation in itself)
emoticon my confidence was broken - I still don't know who this other person may have talked to. I am in knots thinking about it
emoticon of the meetings that went badly, and resulted in nothing productive
emoticon my friend only says negative stuff about my counsellor, the situation; and Doc says that the advice I'm given by my friend is all "blame the victim mentality." Because of my vulnerability, I believe it sometimes.
emoticon I was never given a chance to tell my story; about why it all happened in the first place.
emoticon of the attitude of stigma and blaming the victim.

All of this has messed with my head badly. I've been through more medication changes this year, than in the rest of my life combined. And if you knew my medical history you would know that is a LOT of times. I have lost count this year. Neither, the counsellor or the pastors know that doc said to me about why my reactions were as they were. And, I don't see how I will have the opportunity to tell them. I'm feeling very rejected, and alone.

I still believe God wants me there as my church home; but I don't feel the Spirit there like I did before because it hurts to be there. Most of the time, after I've been there; no matter what day of the week it is, I come home and crash hard into a bad downward Bipolar swing that can last hours or days. How do I get past this? I have forgiven my ex-counsellor. We talk again (though not as counsellor / counsellee; and tension is still there somewhat).

Thank God, for Jesus, or I wouldn't be in one piece right now. He's gotten me through this.

Thank you friends, for listening. Just getting it all out, helps.

    DETERMINEDBABE - Sometimes I try to step outside the situation to look at it from another angle. It's hard to do. I've wondered if it is an attack by Satan because of how well I am doing at this church. He wants to interfere in the relationships I have there. I won't quit. I know this is where God wants me to be, and until He tells me otherwise, I won't permanently move anywhere. Looking at anything through the Bipolar Disorder lens is hard in itself. So much of the upsetting thinking patterns is actually the disorder doing what it does. There's medical reasons behind it. There's no cure. That's just one of the many things to deal with in this disorder. Having a hard time keeping relationships together is a very typical feature. But, again, I don't ever quit. I do turn to my bible, worship music, positive affirmations; all of which help a lot. God will lead me through this. That old saying goes "If He can lead you to it, He will lead you through it"; and I'm holding onto His hand and I'm not letting go. No matter what I go through in the mean time. Thank you for the support. It really is helpful today. Many blessings to you. HUGS

    I know that there are many places in the bible that could give you answers on how to handles such issues. Unfortunately when I read my bible I don't memorize where I found the message but I absorb the meaning to use in my own life.

Remember satan does exist and when the light of CHRIST is working brightly in you satan WILL take notice and try to knock you off your feet. If instead of seeing this as an attack by the ex-counselor but rather an attack by satan you might have not taken it so personally but rather rejoice knowing you are making satan very upset.

When you are feeling attacked pray and open your bible...GOD will direct your path and show you how to handle all things. Even people of faith can be used by satan when they are unaware and do damage in a church. Pray for them that GOD will convict their hearts and open their eyes. Love and patience is the only way to deal with that type of attack. You are then able to think clearly and hear Jesus prompting you by the Holy Spirit what to say and do in all things. Remember GOD doesn't want us to gossip and any advice that is negative is not of GOD.

There is more I could say but remember you are learning and this was a learning curve so when evil attacks again you will know how to handle it.

Praising you because you are being attacked and standing firm and not letting evil win by making you unproductive. You kept stepping out and outside your comfort zones proves it isn't you that gains the victory but Christ in you to the glory of GOD!

We can not do anything in our own strength but Christ in us can do all things!

God bless you and keep you in the light of our Savior!

    Thank you so much Ramona. LOL I say thank you so much it probably sounds like white noise to others, but I really mean it. I like that quote about it being none of my business. That is so true. I don't particularly care anymore what most people think of me. I have learned to let God handle so much; though I am not all the way there yet. There are only a few that really matter a lot to me about what they think. Even then, on the day I stand before God, they won't matter either; it will be just me & Jesus. Thank you soooo much for the prayers. I really do appreciate it. {{{{{{{{{ HUGS }}}}}}}}} back to you too! :-)

    LOL! AW... beautiful girl... no credit required... it's just part of the learning process (years of therapy of my own), I certainly didn't think it up all on my own, LOL!

I would hate being called a victim, too! I don't honestly know how anyone could see you as a vicitm... *everything* about you speaks otherwise... perhaps you can use that as a measuring stick to discern who really is/isn't on your side. If someone is trying to convince you you're a 'victim' what's *their* agenda?

I read something these past few months that gives me great peace... "Other's opinion about you is none of your business!"

Be well and think happy thoughts, Beautiful!Sparkmail me if you want to chat further!

May today and every day bring to you a ridiculous abundance of whatever you need. May all your concerns, struggles, anxieties and fears fall like ashes as you rise on eagle's wings, SOARING above all that would hinder you along this tremendous adventure of being and becoming all you are created to be. May the grace of God simply "overtake" you moment by moment. May the joy and victory of the risen Lord be yours in a very personal way... may you always be overwhelmed by the grace of God, rather than by the cares of life!

    Ramona you are another one of those special SparkFriends that has blessed me so much. I can honestly say it never occurred to me to think about the "victim" vs "victimization". You are so very right about that. It's exactly how I feel. The whole idea of being a victim has always ticked me off so much. I used to worry that other people saw me as that kind of person, or saw me as a person who believes it about myself. One "friend" argued with me once that I saw myself that way. I knew I didn't but she wouldn't believe me and she went around telling others that I did. I tried not to get involved. I knew God would take care of it sometime, but it is hard to avoid getting caught up in that kind of worldly mess. My therapy in the past year has shown me, through various therapy tools, that I don't see myself as a victim. Which is actually a relief to know that. But I've had countless people attempt to victimize me. Granted it's hard to resist, and in my BC (Before Christ) days, sometimes it was even harder to resist. You've helped me with a light bulb moment tonight. Thanks. I just may quote you on that in my book. Seriously! It's an awesome point to make. I hope you don't mind. (I just might need your full name though to credit you fully.) MANY BIG blessings to you. HUGS, Carley

    Hey there, Beautiful! Seems I'm late to the party... I'm so sorry life is such a trial to you lately!

Honey, 'victim' and 'victimization' are two different things! An attempt at 'victimization' does not a 'victim' make!

Victim is how an individual is defined, either by themselves or others... YOU are not a victim (and it does not seem your doctors aer defining you as such)... you are strong, pro-active, and you always do what you can to keep moving forward in a positive and loving way!

'Victimization' is what an abusive, manipulative, self-serving person does resulting in hurt to another... who in turn chooses whether or not to become a victim (and you have chosen NOT).

Carly, as hard as it may be to accept from people you trusted, held in high regard, and call friend, you have been 'victimized' by each of these various people and the situation. Everything they did had nothing to do with you, showed no respect for you and their responsibility to you (as defined by their role in your life), and was an attack on you in your vulnerabilty. What they did had everything to do with them and their own agendas, and nothing to do with you.

I second everything already said... especially that offered by ANYVAR54.

I also offer my own experience... I've been deeply hurt by a church community, and while I have forgiven, for my own emotional and spiritual well-being, I had to find another community. Church is not meant to be an isolating experience... and a church can't be more than the people in it. If the people aren't safe for you, nor will the church be. One can't hear or grow in the spirit if one isn't safe. I needed to be safe before I could sort it all out and move forward.

It's okay, Carly to step back, lick your wounds, rest in the Spirit and wait on the Lord. Focus on healing and rest, Carly. God will take care of the rest. I don't know why this current leg of you journey is so rocky, but I do know you are an amazing part of God's plan, and his desire for you is yet to be realized.

You are in my prayers!

Thanks Evelyn. All my SP friends are wonderful. The support I get is special and unique for sure. I am blessed to be part of the community. My strength is low sometimes, but I don't ever quit. My daily devotional time with God, literally, gives me the strength to go on. I've had my heart broken many times. It's like a big patch work quilt now because God keeps putting it back together... but I am getting stronger and growing close to him with each trial.

    SANDRALEET - Thank you Sandra. People just don't understand mental illness, or abuse, and they get scared when someone needs help and they don't know how to give it. Then there's the stigma, that is more damaging than any of it. It's terrible. I've had people from my church who are wonderful Christians, and are usually filled with compassion... but they've said to me "It sounds like you're in a pity party". One of my doctors gets rather upset at such things, because she said it is proof that people don't understand Bipolar Disorder... and don't seem to be interested in learning. But I don't quit my faith that all will come to light one day. This too will pass. Thank You, Jesus, for that. Many blessings to you. HUGS.

Thank you Ravyna. As always you're advice and prayers help me so much. I do pray all the time. It is where my strength comes from. I listen to worship music every day. I also have a bunch of positive affirmations that I read through quite often. The voices in my head are sometimes loud. They're from the enemy; which is partly Bipolar, but I never quit. I have a wonderful medical team. There's actually 3 doctors, and I like all of them. I have found some Christian counselling elsewhere, but I'm having a hard time trying to hear God's voice on it... should I go to another Christian counsellor or not?! My trust is very low in such people now. I keep telling myself that I am not a victim. Partly out of stubbornness. I always hated that word. All my life I've had people telling me that is how I see myself... but I never understood it 'cause how they are TELLING me I think is not even close to how I really think. I was always confusing. But I had my own feelings about that confirmed last year in a day therapy program I took part of, AND in the counselling that I was in. I do not see myself as a victim, from the medical stand point! AMEN Thank You, Lord for confirming that for me. The med changes are nuts, but I know one day they will be history. I don't give up. I've thought about maybe it's time to go to another church; but again every time (so far) that I get to the point where I decide I am going, and start making plans... God stops me. So right now, I know I'm to stay put. Maybe it'll change some day. Only God knows. I'm hurting a lot now, but I don't ever quit. Thank you for the AWESOME love, support, and friendship. One day I will get to hug you in person for it. MANY, MANY blessings to you.

    Anyvar54 has given you some great advice. Continue to trust in the Lord as our growing faith is the only sustenance we can truly count on for mercy, grace, strength, and compassion.

May your daily meditation on the Word of God allow God to answer your questions with better clarity. May you be given the wisdom you need to move forward in healing broken relationships. Knowing that you are right with God and the people who have given you such grief is key as you continue to honor people with your compassion and forgiveness. Forgiveness is not for them, but for you. Be the best person you can be.

May the Lord give you incredible insight during this terribly time when you may feel all alone. We do some of the most self-sabotaging things when we feel all alone. You're far too precious to fall into that funk and I pray that your strengthened faith walk and the right doctors provide you with what you need to find your way back to health. To God be the glory! You are loved, loved, loved. Know that God never tires or get testy with what we sometimes feel is the same-ole, same-ole prayer or requests. May God's will in our lives be what we honor! Christ paid the ultimate price for us and as such, we have a forgiving, merciful, and compassionate Lord who is there for us always!

1. Pray. I will be in pray for you. God to the Psalms when you come home. listen to music that uplifts you. Turn off the voices in your head that are telling you that you are not worthy, (Jesus says that you are worthy of His blood. You are worthy.)

2. Ask your doctor to recommend to you a therapist/counselor that you can meet with weekly. Someone that you can trust. Someone that he knows will keep your confidence.

3. In the future never consider your counselor to be your friend, or go to a friend to be your counselor. Ask God to help you to put aside what she has said about you to someone else.

4. You are not a victim. You are stronger than that.

5. Medication changes are hard to go through, and you have to expect ups and downs along with that. Ask your doc to keep closer tabs on you if you are having these swings so quickly.

6. You are loved and cared for. Ask God the following question. (which might be hard to do.) Is it time for me to search out another church? Do you want to use me somewhere else? Is there another ministry in the church or outside of the church where you want me to switch to.

7. Or is it time for me to just stay home for a bit and get some rest? Ask him for guidance.

Hugs to you Carley. Prayers going out to you. RAvyna
