Are You Hurting? The Purpose and Power of Pain!

Are you hurting? Have you been rejected by someone you loved and trusted? Are you feeling abandoned and alone? What about your thought-life, are your thoughts peaceful, or confused and suicidal? How about your life in general, is it joyous and fun or has it become difficult for you to relax, smile, and enjoy it?
Lately, we’ve been hearing a lot about the sad state of our economy here in America. But, I believe there is a sadder, more depressing and graver state which underlies and even undermines America’s current economic condition and that’s the horribly dysfunctional state of our relationships.
Relationally, America is in a potentially disastrous decline. Marriages falling apart after 10, 20, 30, and sometimes even 40 years. Husbands and fathers and now wives and mothers literally walking out on their own children. The divorce rate is now beginning to approach 60 percent. Marital relationships have become similar to car lots, first you buy one model and when you get tired of that one you trade it in for another model, and then you trade it in for another model…. ad in•fi•ni•tum. And in this process we adults are so busy satiating our own selfish desires we are completely and totally neglecting the deep emotional traumas this relational madness is causing our own children and families. If it’s difficult for us as adults to deal with this kind of trauma, and we have extended “life experiences”, then how do you think our children are handling this craziness??? WELL GUESS WHAT……THEY’RE NOT!!!
I am certainly no “relationship guru”, as a matter of fact I don’t really believe in “relationship gurus”! I am also not a psychologist, psychoanalysis, psychotherapist, or psychic. I am just someone who’s experienced the joy, power, and peace of a strong committed relationship and also the turmoil, trepidation, and deep depression and utter anguish of a 20 year marriage falling apart. I’ve witnessed firsthand the financial stress and strain a broken relationship can cause for everyone involved, especially children. I’m not the only person who’s experienced this.
After my marriage dissipated, I got to the point I needed some serious relief. I needed an outlet. A sort of “digital couch” if you will. I’ve discovered it has helped me mentally, emotionally, and spiritually to have a healthy outlet. To be able to talk about it. To share with others who are “going through”.
This website, Heart2Heartrelationships, was established to provide those who hurting and currently experiencing emotional stress and trauma resulting from severed or difficult relationships the opportunity to both share, vent, grieve, or say whatever it takes to heal.
And, who knows, the information and insights you are willing to share may potentially lift someone else out of depression and despair and my even give them their lives back.
