As a Christian, early on, I was never encouraged to seek counseling for any challenges I was facing, just to make an appointment and talk to the Pastor. Well, what I learned painfully is that the conversation with the Pastor, became the conversation from the pulpit on Sunday morning. The feeling of guilt, embarrasement, and shame would join with the anxiety, depression or whatever else I was feeling from this one moment of going to the “WRONG” person for help.
It’s a sin problem, a flesh problem, you’re out of alignment problem – was always their response and it’s not truth. As believers, we have issues too! Today, if you’re one of those individuals who trusted your spiritual leader with your truth and got no resolution, know that you’re not alone and assistance is available to you. I want you to forgive yourself and forgive them, often they are too arrogant to admit that they don’t know what to do because they’re masking their own issues. Let’s free ourselves today and be honest with what’s taking place in our lives and seek the “RIGHT” kind of help to get the results that prepare us for greateness. #imachristianandihaveissuestoo
