When the Sweetness Has Turned Bitter

When something is good and sweet, you want more of it. That is how it is in a relationship before it turns to abuse. The words are sweet and the affection is sweet, but after the sweetness comes the unimaginable. After enduring unkindness for a while, the relationship becomes bitter. You no longer feel loved, but you feel guilty because of all the guilt that was placed on you. Abusers have a way of making the other person feel guilty. They are also great manipulators. Abusers look sweet on the outside and will act very sweet to others, but the victim knows that what used to be sweet to her has turned bitter.

For all of those who are struggling with despair, guilt, shame, low self-esteem, etc., because of abuse, keep your head up. The sweetness has gone out of that person, but not you. You have been through a lot, but you are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are priceless!! Don’t turn bitter, because of what you been through. Your life is not over. God can restore you and give you your peace and joy back. Hold on and don’t give up.

God Loves You!!
