An Attempt At Regression

I posted previously about one of my biggest fears. You can reread the post here. Today, I got hurt again. The first time in a long time. It wasn't by someone I was really close to, it was more like a scene from the movie Mean Girls, and it hurt all the same. I was tempted to return to my old ways, to shut off from the world and just mend my heart myself. And then I took account of all that God has shown me recently and how many amazing friends I've met and reconnected with since August. I am not going back. No matter what my first instinct says. I will not let one group of people dictate my response to the rest of my life. I will not regress, I am too excited about all the good relationships in my life to focus on the bad.

Lindsey -
I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS. You are so right - it is easy to close up and shut down. Praise God for all He is teaching you and how He is showing you how strong you are :)

on a different note: I sure am ready to see you making flight plans to Ethiopia!!!!
