Oh did I type that outloud?
I am so sick of women’s ministry/discipleship/”Bible” study that centers around narcissistic navel-gazing, I could vomit. My hurts, my feelings, my opinions, my self image.
Newsflash- You’re not the only person on the planet who’s ever been hurt or had problems.

That really spoke to me on the need to look outwards as well as having personal prayer when needed.
