They narrate what reality is.

They build the scenery in which take place.

If the scenery is distorted, then the whole gets affected and develops distortions.

Once in a time, take a deep breath and relax.

We need one another to thrive, we need to receive from another. We are not meant to live in isolated capsules, each and everyone just for themself! Yes, this is why I feel like I am going insane - perhaps even not only "feel" - because I am shut out, cut off from nutrients; from human connection sharing abundant life.

"If you feel not okay, there must be sin in your life."

This idea is a lie. It is not sin, but it is isolation, and loneliness that is creating the problems. This mindset to dig into the deepest corners of our beings, to find everything flawed - it depletes me. And my father just as well. My mother probably either, also.

To whomever needs to hear this (I need to hear it)

You don't have to feel shame just for being there and existing. Yes, you're vulnerable, but that's okay. You don't have to fake perfection amymore. Especially not in the morning when you are terrified of judgement. It's alright.

Were Eve and Adam afraid to show up when God called them because, if _they_ were able to let an other down, _He_'d possibly be able to do similar too - and so they couldn't trust in his faithfulness anymore?

Latest summary of my last decade - I am severely traumatised by such a high fluctuation of people around me that I can't function anymore. At all. It affects every area of my life and makes me go crazy in feeling like stalling completely.

I'm trying to cope with numerous sudden deaths again. It's tough. Whoever wants is welcome to pray for me. If there's a God, he should please take care of me.

The promise of marriage is the most intimate promise that a human would give. If this is nulled/cancelled unexpectedly, and you can not prepare, it will break your trust at a deep level; stunt your very ability to trust. Such a betrayal impacts the capacity to open up to an other then, and relate and bond.

And the need for intimacy is still there. Where should a loyal yet wrongfully betrayed person go now to have intimacy also on the sexual level?

In my personal experiences, worldview, and understanding, at least.

Divorce, I think, is "actively (or intentionally) rescinding a given promise". A promise is supposed to hold, and to keep up. If you are a loyal partner, and they suddenly go void on you, you are in trouble because "It is not good for man to be alone".

Before the Twin Towers fell — that was order. Chaos manifested itself afterward. Everyone felt it. The very air became uncertain. What exactly was it that fell? Wrong question. What exactly remained standing? That was the issue at hand.

You’re in when you have a loyal friend, a trustworthy ally. When the same person betrays you, sells you out, you move from the daytime world of clarity and light to the dark underworld of , confusion and despair.
This is the same move you make, the same place you visit, when your company starts to fail and your job is placed in doubt.

alters us emotionally. It does not just make us think differently, it makes us also feel differently. It alters our relationships. Brokenness tends to affect our capacity for intimacy. It also affects how others relate or respond to us. Brokenness makes us act differently.

So, basically it affects just about everything that we do and who we are.
