and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23
My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.
Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.
Daddy let me be secure in You only!

"I used to be so hung up on trying to get people to treat me the way they wanted me to treat them. I tried so hard. Now I realize that I put a ton of energy into working on relationships with people who didn't actually care!" ~ Darlene Ouimet
I guess with any addiction such as alcohol and drugs, co-dependency is right up there with them. Like with an alcoholic it would just take one drink for them to possibly fall off the wagon. Where with co-dependency it would take one desired unhealthy relationship that you could possibly fall off the wagon as well.
Out of the hurt of past rejection and emotional abandonment, my latter years I strived, as Darlene did, for people to like me. Becoming what I thought they wanted me to become.
I perfected my craft of "masking" who the real me was. Wore the mask of acceptance. If that meant not having a voice. That was me. If that meant doing things I knew was not pleasing to God, I would still do it. Out of my own hurt and pain I responded this way. That is how strong this disease can be.
Having always a servant spirit, makes me more vulnerable to please. But, now I am much more emotionally healthier/stable and use my servant spirit for my Daddy's glory.
