Situation: You’ve gotten yourself all tangled up in a situation and now you’re not sure how to get yourself out. Someone has you a prisoner to your thoughts. I’m getting it’s a child’s father who has spent time in prison. This person is oppressive, perhaps abusive, dogmatic, and rigid. It’s their way or the highway kind of person.
Current feelings: You’re not feeling like you have the strength to keep working towards the stable family you set out to create with this person. Despite your best efforts to offer this person another way of being, they are choosing to commit to their tried and true methods of self sabotage. I’m feeling that you are trying to figure out what more you can do to get this person to realize the gift that you’re trying to offer them. Who wouldn’t want a family, stability, love, and devotion?
Future: This betrayal has left you feeling stabbed in the back and in need of assistance. Whatever has gone down between you and this person feels like ten knives in your skin. Weeping may endure for a night my love, but you are going to have to pick yourself back up. I hear you questioning God wondering what you did to deserve this pain. I’m so sorry babe.
Advice: Once you’ve cried this out it’s time to get back up, make a plan, and work the plan. The help and support that you need is, or will be, made available to you but you are going to need to be strategic to see yourself out of this mess. The hard work you put in will produce results for you but you will need to make sure you find a way to protect all that you are about to build. Trust your intuition, pray, and keep your faith. God is with you and your son. Things will turn out alright. Watch your spending, every penny saved is available for a rainy day.
