A while back, I wrote a blog on being the Other Woman. While it was by far one of the most difficult ones I’ve written, it was a freeing opportunity. Putting the hurtful words into the blogging universe, took some pain with it. I immediately had peace.
Unfortunately, though there is a specific grounding in my heart, there has been distance. Being the other woman does that. I forgave, but closing that gap is confusing. Only other women who’ve dealt with the pain of pornography would understand. I desire a fresh start but I fear a fresh start.
As I work on myself, I am forced to work on being present in a relationship that I don’t feel ‘good enough’ to be in. I have questions that no answer will ever satisfy, and that is a challenge. Working to move past the pain is a slow process.
As I maneuver these tough times, God simplifies the story.
“I love you. I love you. I love you.”
The other words He pours out are personal and belong to me. For the first time, I can breathe through this battle. My heart may be injured, but God alone is sewing up the wounds.
I may be the other woman, but I’m always a daughter of the King. For that, I am grateful.

It took a lot of courage to write that. I was a child abuser. If everyone was as honest as you I think you would be really surprised at the confessions of people who have all kinds of sins from their far past and recent past. God bless you for your honesty and your courage.
