Hello Beautiful

Occasionally in life I find myself entertaining ideas of a self-destructive nature.  Usually provoked by some life event of ill fate.  A relationship gone wrong.  An unforeseen financial expense.  A desired goal failed.  These seemingly bleak moments in our lives incur a whirlwind of emotions; not the least of which are personally villainous. 

No contemplation has lead to a point of personal harm, this is not the struggle of my own life.  But how many of us can honestly say we have never been faced with such thoughts.  Our society is full of detrimental options for coping with temporal pain.  Excessive alcohol. Drugs. Licentiousness.  Suicide.  We have even created options that appear more acceptable such as workaholism or social withdrawal.  But all of these fail to deal with the issues in our world.  Such thoughts only seek to destroy our lives in a party of self-pity.  None of these celebrate the beauty in our hearts.  They only exemplify the ugliness that exist in our world.  Self-destruction is never beautiful.

When I experience a derailing event in my life I am often left without strength.  That is why I am thankful for the Godly wisdom to surround myself with family and friends that promote good decisions.  For a loving God that listens when bear my heart’s pain unto His, no matter how small or great the matter.  And for the guidance to deal with each unique scenario I have experienced.

Where there is opportunity for self-destruction, there is even greater prospect for self-construction.  The chance to deepen relationships with those around us.  The occasion to pick up a new hobby.   The opportunity to become more beautiful.  Once you have dealt with the initial pain in a positive manner you can be of clear consciousness to deal with the real hurt inside.  Disclose your heart to a loving God that only desires joy and love for your life.  Then find a positive solution to the problem.

No matter what you are facing do not let the self-destruct feature in your nature take over.  Diffuse the bomb, take the issue to the authorities, and make the day sunny.  Do not let a temporary event distract you from knowing that you are beautiful.

\\ If you or someone you know is actively struggling with self-destructive acts, we encourage you to seek help and counseling.\\
