as I walk

the journey to becoming me

darkness part 2

When I cut, it doesn’t just hurt me, it hurts my wife.  I promised to never intentionally hurt her.  I need to get better so I can stop hurting her.  Even though I don’t give a shit about myself, I care for her deeply and need to stop… for her.  For our marriage.  I love her more than cutting.  I hate seeing that sadness, frustration, confusion, and disappointment in her eyes more than I love the release I get from a blade.
I have to quit.
I have to get better.
If not for me, then for her.
For our marriage.
Even now, all I can think about is a pair of scissors, but I know that it’s temporary and that her pain lasts longer than my relief.  Every day that I cut, I feel like a failure.  I feel like a bad wife.  I feel selfish.  I feel shame…
I’m just trying to remember that I love her more than cutting.

    I’m praying for you and for Kelly right now, for God’s presence in the darkness with you. I’m praying for His comfort and healing and peace.
