Refusing Contact With Your Narcissist Ex!

Today I got messages from 2 ladies who had read my blog What Happens When You Leave A Narcissist?  http://talesfromted.blogspot.com/2013/04/what-happens-when-you-leave-narcissist.html

One commented that I hit the nail right on the head in every detail! 

The other woman commented that "the hardest thing in the world is to not leave home because they still have access to you, but to divorce a Narcissist when you have children with them. They really believe they are good guys who are just misunderstood. They use the children against you and try to convince your parents that you have hormonal issues and need to come back home where you can be cared for by those who love you. They say that all is forgiven and you can start where you left off. Some will even go to counseling so they can learn to tell you what you want to hear. They mimic love because they truly cannot feel compassion or love. Their idea of love is sex and lots of it if you are worthy of their bed."

Well all of this i…

Alone And Friendless For Christmas

This year I was alone for Thanksgiving. I've been alone for Thanksgiving before though it has been a while, and this year I will be alone for Christmas and New Year's. I've been alone for Christmas and New Year's before and wondered what to do with me. Maybe some of you are in that same fix. What to do, you ask yourself? Sure, it’s easy to fall into a funk and begin to feel sorry for yourself and your situation. What makes it worse is if you don't even have a friend to do Christmas with for whatever reason. Sometimes it was by choice, and other times it wasn't. In any case, when I was alone for Thanksgiving this year I read and went to a movie, I found a way to make the most of my situation and looked at it with from a very short-term perspective —who knows what next year will bring? What if it is the same thing? What will you do then? Plan ahead!

It’s a great time to do something completely different and go outside of your comfort zone or shell of security. If…

Are Christians Allowed Their Beliefs? The Liberal Hate Mongers Are Allowed Theirs!

By extrapolating quotes and just plain old lying, the elite media are using a GQ interview with "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson as an excuse to go on an anti-Christian rampage that they hope will further their longstanding goal of toxifying Biblical beliefs as bigoted and anti-gay. If you read the full GQ interview, though, it is glaringly obvious that Robertson is anti-sin, not anti-gay, and that he believes we should all love one another.

To begin with, the Duck Commander did not single out homosexual behavior; he listed over a half-dozen sins, including adultery, greed, bestiality, drunkenness, idolatry, etc. But the most important thing Robertson said I have yet to see anyone in the elite media report:
You put in your article that the Robertson family really believes strongly that if the human race loved each other and they loved God, we would just be better off. We ought to just be repentant, turn to God, and let’s get on with it, and everything will turn around. 

Regrets You Don't Want In Life

How would you like to wake up ten years from now and realize your whole life has been wasted, lost on following foolish advice or allowing a fool to manage your life, toxic relationships, achievements you gave up on because of negative criticism by a cynic, and wishing your life had been different? Wearing a mask to impress others. – If the face you always show the world is a mask, someday there will be nothing beneath it.  Because when you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you really are.  So don’t fear the judgments of others; you know in your heart who you are and what’s true to you.  You don’t have to be perfect to impress and inspire people.Let them be impressed and inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.Letting someone else create their dreams at your expense – The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are; the second greatest is being happy with what you fi…

Who Do Men Say That I Am? A Thanksgiving Thought

Matthew 16:13-20
13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son ofthe living God.”17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock[a] I will build my church, and the gates of hell[b] shall not prevail against it.19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed[c] in heaven.”20 Then he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ.

I am probably God's most rebellious child I guess. I can't even count the things I hav…

Ministers, Pastors, Leadership and Churches Who Abuse the Divorced

The problem with divorce among Christians is improperly taught clergy itself and an unforgiving, badly informed church . Christians seem to be the only army that shoot their wounded. Instead of examining the issues concerning why a couple chooses divorce we choose a side and condemn the other. Yes there are wrong reasons to divorce. Yes there are wrong divorces, however we are all sinners. Even the saved are sinners saved by grace, like it or not, they are forgiven when they repent of their sins ask for it. In fact, we walk in a state of grace before God. Does that give us license to sin, no! However grace is God's Riches At Christ's Expense not ours!! Grace is about what God did even when we were at enmity with Him. Like or not, there are right reasons for divorce and abuse is at the top of the list. Nowhere in God's word does it tell a man or a woman to allow abuse by their so-called covenant partner in marriage! Nowhere in God's word does it allow a man to berate, b…
