It really hurt my self-esteem. I was bullied for being a preacher’s kid and “goodie two shoes”, for wearing glasses, for what I wore,where I lived, and especially my commitment to practice abstinence. You name it, I probably experienced it. At one point, I remember that I just stopped wearing my glasses altogether because I kept being called “four eyes” and it really kicked my self esteem. I wanted to be “normal” like the other kids and be called pretty. I didn’t feel that I was pretty because of what names kids used to call me. For a long time I still struggled with appearance due to what people had said before. Sometimes I couldn’t tell when people were joking or being hateful. Thankfully though, through all the chaos, GOD WAS STILL FAITHFUL. Even though I wasn’t always seeking God, HE was still after me and was working even when I couldn’t see it.
Regardless of what background you come from, or what you are going through right now. I want to hear your story! You can get those to me by subscribing, leaving it in the comments, or emailing me them! If you are okay with it, I would like to post a few of them, so just let me know! May God bless each and every one of you immensely!
Here is video from Francesca Battistelli that really helps me remember that even though I fail continually in life, it’s not really about me. It’s about letting God write HIS STORY on me.
