Past experiences

I can't get rid of my past fears of bullies being hurt im bound to a wheel chair it's hard I hate it I hate my self but I met god he helped me get though everything I love your music it reminds me that I don't have to be alone anymore I have family but I'm still hurting with my past y help me please

It can be hard to get over fears, and to leave the past behind. I am glad that you met God even though it was through unfortunate hard circumstances. Ask God to help you remember he is close by and to change your perspective about the past. He is listening and He hears and sees you so clearly. He wants all the happiness and good things in the world for you. Pray for peace and comfort to overcome those fears. I've realized more and more when we address our fears with TRUTH, it sheds a light to the dark things we put in our mind. Remind yourself of who you are and how loved you are! God will comfort you and be there through every step. Make a list of all the things that are true, so when you feel down or start to believe the lies in your head you can look to what are facts. I'm also happy my music reminds you you're not alone too. <3

Friends

Hey tiff i have this friend and we have been friends but nowbthat we are growing up we are also growing apart.i dont wanna loose her but it looks like its going to happen...is there a way to avoid it?

Growing up means change! Our bodies change, our interests and values change, our school may change, our home may change, and sometimes our friends change. It's hard when friendships change. Sometimes you just can't avoid it, but you can avoid taking it personally. Don't get down on yourself, or get down on your friend. Be compassionate with yourself, and toward your friend. Give yourself extra leisure time in your schedule, to just be alone, and to feel your feelings about growing apart. Feeling sad is something that doesn't feel good and it's easy to try to avoid it. But avoiding feeling sad can create addictions because you'll continue to try to avoid and avoid and avoid feeling sad. Losing a good friend is sad! Growing apart is sad! Grief is an emotion that can take a lot of energy. Grieving is how our mind and our body stay healthy when we experience a loss of something we value. Do you know that tears release stress hormones? The grief we feel is equal to how much we value what we've lost. Honor your friend and the great friendship you had by spending time alone, feeling your feelings. Honor your heart, and honor your friends' heart. Namaste'! ;)
