The Kindness Project
I am a 67 year old abused woman in therapy for more years than I wish to remember. My 40 year marriage was mentally, physically, & verbally abusive. He was extremely controlling & always accusing me of cheating. How can you cheat when you get 15 minutes to get home in heavy NJ traffic ??? I stayed & was sitting on the side of the bed when he took his last breath.
I have been kind to strangers, especially homeless people. I volunteer wherever I can. I’ve stayed hours with people in need, given them money to eat(while I went home & ate cereal). I’ve brought people of all colors & races home with me so they had a roof over their heads, a clean bed, a shower & meals. They leave when they feel ready. (Usually within a few days). I’ve had by check book stolen, my house keys, & who knows what else. I do not do inventory. If they feel they need it, God help them. I’ve admitted myself to the crisis center because I lent over $20,000 to a man who looked in my eyes & told me he loved me. I’m so desperate for love that I believed him. That was my retirement money. I know I‘be made very bad judgements, but there are people out there that need help& have nowhere to turn. If God decides one of these people should harm me I will accept it. My life is in God’s hands. I will continue to hold my head up high, love everyone, even if they think I’m crazy, because this is MY journey. This is what God put me here for & it is not my place to question. Thank you for your beautiful session.
