The whore who wasn’t

A woman who recently was divorced became the object of gossip in the town.  She was attractive and men wanted to talk with her.  Her ex-husbands girlfriends began to talk about her and make up stories about her.  She soon became the town whore and even more men wanted to talk with her.  Their purpose was not to get to know her, but to have sex with her.  She soon became reclusive and often times stayed home so she wouldn’t have to rebuff the men who approached her.  She had children and did not want them to think that having a different man in your bed every night was the right thing to do.  She knew that their father was having women in his bed.  She tried to talk with her ex but her would not listen to her and said that she would have to deal with what she was doing and that if she wanted the talk to stop she should stop being a whore.  She took her children and moved away from the area.

She prayed for herself, her children and for the people who lied about her.  She especially prayed for her ex-husband.  She wanted to forgive but found it difficult.  She learned how to take deep breaths and give what she could not control over to God.  She could not stop the gossip, but she could protect her children from hearing lies about their mother.  She needed to forgive their father and let go of his lack of caring about her or them.  The link below will help you let go of what you have no control over.

Here is the link    Enjoy!

I became a therapist in an attempt to understand my own childhood and what happened there and how it made me who I am, exhibiting the behaviors that were not always positive, very often self-destructive. I used Art Therapy to help me understand things in my past that were stopping me from making better decisions in my present day. I used Behavioral Science to help me understand underlying causal factors, roots to the present day behaviors that I was seeing in myself. Both help me to change those behaviors/thoughts that were causing me to make self-destructive decisions that were causing pain in life. I have been a therapist since 1985 and have an undergraduate degree Art and behavioral science (double major) from the University of Maine. My graduate work was done at Marywood university and I have a degree in Art Therapy. I have certificates in Forensic Interviewing and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy. I have 22 out of 30 credits toward a degree in Trauma Therapy from Drexel University. I started out as a Community Support Worker, Program Manager/Clinical Supervisor, Family therapist and Outpatient therapist.
