Not only was this condition causing me health issues and destroying my relationships with my husband and 5 little children, it created an invisible strangle hold on my ability to know myself, know God, feel love, or experience joy. In short, in the shell of what appeared to be the "perfect mom, wife, woman" was an angry, empty, fearful pile of psychosis. If I could do a little more, I will feel better. If I can have the perfect body I will be happier. If I can follow every rule in my church to a tee, the promise is happiness.....I just needed to try a little harder and push my family to do the same. Though I was born in a loving Christian, church going family, and I read the Holy Scriptures and prayed daily, I was anything but Christ-like and felt enmeshed in a tangled weave of desperation and hyper-vigilance. I was paddling as fast as I could but sinking nonetheless. My wake-up call invited me to make a total lifestyle upgrade from the inside out. In one window of grace my facade was up. I read a book that cracked me wide open to the possibilities that I was creating my messy life. I was fortunate because most neurotic and narcissistic perfectionist will resist being accountable for what they are creating and I wish I could say I embraced it, but I had no idea just how accountable I really was. Everything I was experiencing in my health, my relationships and my sick mind had only one common denominator.....ME. I had a kind, wise and assertive energy worker tap into my tangled mind and release toxic mental and emotional patterns. Little by little I started to feel something I hadn't felt since I was a child....JOY. We are all "Created for JOY!"
