I recently came across a blog post by a Gal who really inspired me. She is facing Bipolar Disorder, and learning to fly above the waves.
Certainly, the pitfalls and strategies for Bipolar are much different than for Pedophilia. But perspective and attitude count for a whole lot. Kelsey shares some practical advice about self care, but weaved throughout is a fierce determination to love her life, her story, and herself – even if she shares these with a unique challenge.
And that’s what you and I need. We are not this disorder. We must see ourselves as distinct from Pedophilia, and be able to love ourselves. At the same time, it’s part of the backdrop to our story. We can’t hate life because of that. We can live well.
Kelsey describes her connection to friends, events, and faith in Jesus, and concludes with…
Choose a little bit more light, a little bit more ease, a little bit more laughter, and a lot more love. Choose that for you, and then trust that you are going to be okay. Because in the end, it will all be okay. And if it’s not okay, that’s just because it’s not the end.
