No Love In Return

In my life I have been struggling lately. Even though I know there are people that love me surrounding me I have felt so lonely and unappreciated lately. I sometimes feel so hurt with the way people are and how they don't even care sometimes when I have tried to show them so much love and concern and they don't even acknowledge or accept it. When others don't realize just how much I try to encourage and go out of my way to make them feel better it hurts me deep inside and makes me feel worthless and useless to them. What sometimes hurts even more is that they don't even think to show that love in return and they don't care about my feelings or how it will affect me- all they think is themselves.

.
Now, please let me tell you that when I am impacted by these people who don't seem to care it makes it even more of a blessing when people come along who really do care and show their love and appreciation. It just feels like recently in my life I have had more of those who don't care in my life than those who do and it makes me feel totally worthless at points. It brings me to tears how I feel and I sometimes feel so alone and useless.

I was talking to my mom about this tonight and she said that when we feel like nobody else cares or see all that we do for them- God does. Know that I truly care for you all too!!! I But sometimes even knowing that God cares doesn't seem to satisfy my needs even though I know it should. I sometimes would appreciate it more if that person truly acknowledged and knew how they made me feel. But even though it may make us feel better if that person knew doesn't change that God sees all that we do and how others affect us. In the end we will all see what each of us has done and how others treated us (whether it be good or bad) and we will all be judged fairly according to what we have (and have not) done. That is so reassuring to me sometimes since I feel like down here in my life things don't seem fair, but when we reach heaven we will all be treated fairly and we will all be judged by a fair God. 

I'm sorry if this post was a bit depressing, but just by writing this and being able to post it really does somehow help make me feel better. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, and I hope that if you are experiencing these same feelings that this could have been of some encouragement to you.

If you ever have a problem and would like guidance or just to tell someone how you are feeling please contact me (on my contact page) and I would be happy to help you out!!

Have a great day!!

  2. I know what you're saying. Even though God is so awesome and amazing, sometimes I just wish that there was a person that I could talk to about how I feel. A person that wouldn't judge me, but would listen and understand.

  3. it's okay to have a negative post every once in a while! It sure does feel good to get it out every now and then.
    ...I understand.
    there is a verse I love that I have held onto for a couple years now. It is 1 Corintians 1:9 (NCV version) and it bagins: "god, Who you are called to share everything with, is faithful." and he really did call us to share everything with him.
    I love this. And just know, there are people that care about you, though it may seem few, it's probably better that way.
    I know this feeling.
    I am praying for you and I can't wait to see some more posts from you in the future!
    have a great day!
    ;)

  5. I know exactly how you feel, Britt. I used to feel this a lot. A bit lonely. A bit confused because I know I should be satisfied in God but I did want a person to talk to. I can't say exactly how I stopped feeling this way - a lot of different things happened but one of them in particular was me asking God to help me become satisfied in Him. To help me see through the loneliness and recognize the grace He poured out on me daily. If you ever need someone to talk to, I know I probably don't really count, but please send me an email anytime. :)
