Oh the joy He gives me❤ My goal use to be happiness, but when I truly found the love of God, He over fills me with JOY❣which I think is better😉
That is because happiness is an emotion in which we "experience feelings ranging from contentment and satisfaction to bliss and intense pleasure," whereas joy "is a stronger, less common feeling than happiness." We experience joy when we achieve selflessness to the point of personal sacrifice.
You’re not stuck. Your possibilities are endless! 🤩

My shirt says “SUPER LOVED” and the most important love I discovered was for myself. It’s been a long journey and a lot of tears were shed developing that love. It’s so much harder to do than anyone ever admits. People consistently tell you to learn to love yourself as if you can just immediately develop something you’ve never had. When your self-love has been nonexistent your entire life, it’s incredibly difficult to begin to discover it and it certainly doesn’t happen overnight.
I hated myself so much and the crazy thing was, I hated myself because of things other people did to me. I was a victim, I was powerless and I had no control in the situation. Still—I blamed myself. For those who have never been victimized that doesn’t make much sense, but sadly that’s how the abused brain works. I desperately wanted to love myself, but I couldn’t. I read every self-help book on the shelf, I earned a Masters Degree in Counseling, and still nothing gave me that sought-after feeling of “I’m enough.” My self-loathing continued until I was surrounded in the aftermath of my own self-destruction. In that cesspool of darkness and pain, my healing slowly began. I went into treatment and I began to truly develop my faith. I’d always loved God, but my relationship with Him was peripheral at best. Day-by-day I began to reconstruct every erroneous belief and coping mechanism developed as a survival strategy when I was young. It’s a long, tedious process, and it requires an incredibly powerful sense of determination. Healing isn’t for the weak. So if you think because you are walking a path of recovery and healing that you are weak somehow, think again. You are strong, you are courage-filled, you are a warrior. You are fighting battles some people know nothing about. Keep praying, keep fighting, keep valiantly pursuing the peace you deserve. You’re worth it. .
