surprise

June 28, 2015

Exploding head

Imagine my surprise when I open the mail and there’s a deepest sympathy card and a note saying they were sorry to hear my mom passed. It was news to me. I haven’t seen my mom in over 24 years, have not talked to her in over 9 years. In her obituary I’m not mentioned.

To say we were a dysfunctional family would be an understatement. She was a bad mom and I was a very bad son. The years I actually lived with her were very few. I’ve always believed that I became a psychologist mainly as a way to deal with my childhood and help others deal with theirs. I also think that one of the reasons I have such a great marriage is neither my wife nor I had good parents and wanted our marriage to be more than just better.

As I have traveled doing marriage seminars for so many years the Lord blessed our marriage and our ministry by being able to be compassionate and understanding about childhood trauma.

The one thing I want to say is the past can be conquered, you can live a victorious life and the Lord blesses effort not luck.
