Crushed by a Breakup Text
My boyfriend of 5 years broke up with me and told me he had a date with some someone via text message. My son who loves him was as crushed as I was, as he felt as if he had lost a father.
Through talking to a HopeCoach, we uncovered that I had been in many unhealthy relationships, even with my own parents. Not only was I relying more on people to make me happy and not myself, but my relationship with God was unhealthy and untrusting. I'm still hurting, but I know it doesn't matter if my ex comes crawling back or not.
Hopeful I Am Not Alone
I will not be happy or be able to make anyone else happy, until I am right with God again.
My HopeCoach and I prayed together and although I'm still hurt, I feel hopeful knowing that I'm not alone and I never was. I was simply looking in the wrong places.
Don't Give Up Hope
Getting over a hurtful breakup can be a type of grief. Don't give up faith and don't give up hope. There are healthy ways to move towards healing. God tells us, “I will never fail you, nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5). When we place our faith in Jesus, wanting Him in our lives, we become His child and forever can rest secure in His love. If you are struggling with not feeling good enough, know that God loves you and accepts you just as you are. He desires a relationship with you that is real and offers you peace, love and joy. All you have to do is ask.
