I've Given Up


(UK)

I don't know when all this happened. It seems like yesterday we were madly in love with each other. Now he is a totally different man and I am a totally different woman. I pretend to be happy, I go do all the things a mother and wife has to do, but at night, I cry myself to sleep. I've put up walls so he can't hurt me with his words, but he still does. Every time he opens his mouth he rips me to shreds.

I feel so worthless. I don't have reason to get out of be anymore. I just want this life to end. I'm not suicidal but I do pray that God will take me to heaven.

I know that sounds horrible, but life isn't worth fighting for -- for what? To be a worthless woman and mother? My kids don't need a mother like me. My husband doesn't need a woman like me.

How can I find purpose in this life?

Maybe you can't help me Kelly, but I hope you will.

Don't Give Up Just Yet!
by: Kelly Ann Evers

Dear Anonymous,
I've been there! It was not easy, my depression was so severe I didn't get out of bed for about 6 months (except for feeding my daughter and taking her to school).
I prayed the same prayer. But I am glad God didn't answer it! Loved one, life may seem out of control right now but there is a beautiful future for you. You may feel trapped and hopeless and even helpless but did you know God specializes in treating those? He is the one who saved me from that pit of despair. He was the one that lifted me out of depression and gave me a hopeful future -- and I know He will do the same for you.
I want to encourage you to spend time in the Word of God. It's what saved my life. I found scriptures that helped in every area of hurt.
