Abandonment Feelings, grrrrrrrrrrr

So, if I wasn’t convinced before, I am now convinced that abandonment feelings are straight from the pit of hell. I really don’t know of anything that can send us reeling and spiraling like feelings of abandonment. They don’t have to even be real, just perceived abandonment, that really isn’t abandonment at all, can make us absolutely-certifiably-nuts.

There are those in the counseling field who would even venture to say that this is the root cause of all psychopathology, abandonment or perceived abandonment. Isn’t that funny that just the feeling that we might actually be alone, that someone would leave us, can make us that upset? I guess that is why we need God so very very desperately; we NEED to KNOW that God is always there, that he will never ever ever ever leave us. That is the absolute truth, but if you are like me, when you are reeling and spinning in the throws of an abandonment onslaught, all truths go out the window.

So, just remember a cord of three strands is not easily broken. Each and every one of us needs that one person we can go to when we are spinning ourselves like a drill going 90 miles an hour into our own pit. We need that one person to stop us from spinning, and help us to just breathe and stand still. It’s a good idea also to “hide scripture in our hearts” so that when it is needed we can whip it out for battle and send those feelings straight back to where they belong. Abandonment, grrrrr, go back to your home!!!!
