  1. Amen! I figured I would leave a comment here. You, my dear, walk that line so well. Better than any other blog I’ve ever read. It’s one of the reason I love your blog so much. Refreshing through and through.

    I wear my heart on my sleeve and probably put my seasons out there too much. After everything that happened with my birth experience and breastfeeding it was amazing how many private messages I received from ladies saying, “Me too!” I was so encouraged and grateful to those who reached out to me, but I wondered why no one ever talked about that stuff.

    The enemy wants us to feel like we’re alone. I have made really bad choices in seasons when I chose the believe the lie that I was completely alone. When we share the good, bad, and ugly we allow the light of the Lord to shine through all of it.

  2. Agree, agree, agree! There is so much pressure to add a positive spin (nobody like a Negative Nancy!) but talking honestly about struggle brings us together and is so much less alienating. I remember going through a difficult pregnancy and while I could find others in the same boat online, most of the bloggers talked about it in a cheery “everything will work out, keep praying” way. I ended up feeling even worse about my guilt and despair because I couldn’t find someone else who felt the same. It’s all about being vulnerable. Love the post!
