Today's Prayer

I know YESTERDAY I posted about my family's response to being more open about my life and therefore my friendship with BJ. Today, I'm fighting to keep myself in a healthy place.

Help me remember that I can't control others.
No one needs me to protect their feelings by hiding the truth.
I can't protect everyone, and they wouldn't want me to (really) anyway.
It's none of my business what other people think of me (although I will always try to be aware of how I affect others.)

Help me to trust the people that are closest to me and love me, at least until I can trust myself again. Help me to remember why I want to stop hiding, and why I chose to stop running away.

Help me to find the place of love, rather than fear.
Love for myself. Love for others. Love for the journey I am on.


  1. I love your view on yourself and the world around you jenfor, I hope you can find your serenity, or it finds you to be honest I'm not really sure how that works. OOH OOH we can continue on our road of life and find it together (how's that for deep and crap)

    1. That's pretty deep. and Awesome. I love you Zacky!!

  2. Love you and appreciate how even as you are trying to get away from worrying about what other people think you recognize the affect you have. You have such a sweet and good affect on others. It isn't your responsibility yet it is part of you. You are simply awesome!
