Red Flags – Warning signs in me – a repost from MovedByFaith
[I had] poor finances, a rocky past in relationships, and a history of bouts with anxiety and depression. If I had all these “issues,” who was I not to accept HIS “issues” ?Problem is I allowed myself to process the warning signs as issues. These two are not the same.Red Flags, Red Flags, Red Flags:
- Wanting to be loved when it is too much to love yourself.
- Wanting to belong in a family, to create a family.
- Leaving your heart open to be trampled on.
It is positive to want to love and be loved, to desire a family, and to have a open heart. But to throw caution to the air, and want these goals above all else left me vulnerable.Now, cleaning up the rubble in my heart has been a daily chore. It is not enough to know the warning signs an abuser emits, what are the warning signs in yourself that allow you to ignore them?~Kara
