Healing from Emotional Pain

I wrote this a few minutes ago for my own therapy while going through a long ago needed divorce.


​There are lies about me

told and believed

by several

Don't know all that they are saying

but I know they aren't true

loving or caring

All I ever wanted was genuine connections with all of them

which I thought I already had

God knows the truth

as does one who lived with us

and another one believes me

and knows that I'm sincere

Grateful is an understatement

for how this makes me feel

not everyone is so fortunate as I

in this regard

I need to surround myself with truth and positivity

thus quenching the lies which flit through my brain

Hopefully I will feel back to myself again soon

It has already begun

From the time that I left​

Brenda, your heart felt words mean more than I can say. Thank you for the empathy!

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on September 24, 2020:


I can feel the heartache the lies have caused in these heartfelt words.

It is difficult to move ahead when one wants the truth to be known.

The truth will eventually reveal & the ugliness will shine through.

Stay true to oneself and make the best of your own life.

Life is too short to worry & waste your valuable time.

Nice write.
