From Wounded to Warrior

A letter to my bullies {past, present, and future},

This is very difficult for me, because many of you have wounded me deeply. Throughout my life, I have given your words unnecessary power to pierce my heart and produce stifling insecurity. I have allowed you all to make me weak, and I have given you the power to hurt me.

I am writing to say I forgive you.

I forgive you for the pain you have caused, and I will no longer allow your words to have the power to affect my emotions. I wish you could see the joy that Jesus brings. My heart hurts knowing that you have no idea the transforming power of true Love. I know that you are attacking me out of a place of brokenness, and I hope that you all experience the joy that Christ allows at some point in your life-because otherwise, you will always be empty.

You can call me names until you’re blue in the face. You can try to attack me on social media, or talk bad about me. But at the end of the day, I forgive you. Whether you’ve called me “fat” or “slut” or “pig faced” or “midget” or “depressed” I forgive you.

It’s not easy for me to forgive you all, because these attacks have haunted me over the course of my life. But forgiveness is necessary for healing. Forgiveness is soothing to the soul. And sometimes it’s so hard to forgive that it has to come in the form of writing.

I hope you’re happy now. I hope you all will allow Jesus to transform your lives, and re-design your hearts. He sure has changed mine.

Katy {no longer wounded, but a warrior}
