I wrote this a while back, im still trying to break the walls down but its slow work. i think a few bricks are a bit loose now, at least i know what im dealing with, so thats a start.

I have spent years running into the wall,
Every time im in self pity mode
I run into the wall.
when i think of all the people who have hurt me
I run into the wall.
Every time I am upset
i run into the wall.
Everytime i have bad thoughts
I run into the wall.
every time i put myself down
I run into the wall.

I try to knock the wall down,
But every time i try
it gets stronger,
Every time i run into it
a new wall appears
its getting so thick that
im running out of room to run.

God’s shown me
I don’t have to run into the wall
but to run to him.
every time i run to God
each wall that i had made
starts to crumble.

The wall of doubt
The wall of self worth
The wall of rejection
The wall of self pity
The wall of past hurts
The wall of jealous
The wall of present hurts
The wall of loneliness
The wall of depression

bit by bit
when i seek God and trust him
A few more bricks will fall
one day the walls will be gone
and i will move on
with God by my side.
with God all things are possible

WhietDove~Welcome back and good to see you hon aftrer a long time. I was worried about you.

I'm so proud of you hon. You seem to be heading in the right direction. Good for you. What a great achievement to be able to break down all those walls with God alongside you.

In my recovery program...we have been requested to break down the walls, take risks and reach out to others even if some other folks would disappoint us. Better to try and fail...than risk nothing and get paralyzed in your fear, anxiety, and doublemindedness.

Keep up the great work. Great wisdom to which I agree!

You're speakin my language 🙂 This is why I chose my name "thewall". Anyway, I love this story and benefitted from it greatly. Wanted to share it with you too.

Throwing you a flower of hope,
thewall

***************************
THE WALL

In the course of Sally's life she began to experience and feel much pain in her life, to the extent that she felt that she could not stand it any more. One day as she was taking a walk immersed in her inner turmoil she noticed a huge wall and heard a voice on the other side.

Sally shouted, "Who is on the other side?"

A voice called out, "John !"

Sally asked John why was he on the other side of the wall and he replied, "I built it to keep others out, so they would not hurt me anymore>"

Before John could say anymore Sally had briskly walked away thinking to herself, "That's what I will do, I will build a wall so that no one can ever hurt me again."

Early the next morning Sally began to construct her wall. It soon became apparent to her that she could build the wall any way that she chose to. She started adding stones to her wall that were different shapes, colors, and sizes. She began to label each one of the stones as anger, resentment, fear, guilt, etc., continuing to build with all of the emotions, attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs that would keep others from getting close to her>

Sally had not built her wall high enough, therefore others were able to step over the wall and get close to her, This really upset her.

Sally began to work diligently on her wall building it higher and higher so that no one could reach her. She marveled at her creation and felt pride at the size and texture of the stones. She did began to notice that with each added to the wall there was a less light from the sun.

After a period of time Sally began to notice how quiet and lonely it was being behind the wall. She began to notice that the wall was not as pretty as it once was and how it began to look gray and faded out.

Every so often someone would throw a beautiful flower over the wall to her. Sally became very sad and began to realize that the very wall that she had built to keep others out had became a prison that she could not escape.

As the days passed Sally became more depressed and desperate. In her desperation she decided to pray.

She heard this thunder and a voice spoke out to Sally from the sky, "Sally this is God, I heard your cry."

Sally cried out, "Please help me I have become a prisoner of this wall that I created and now I don’t know how to escape."

God went on to explain to Sally that since the wall had been created by her, only she could tear it down.

He told her that she could start by removing one stone at a time at her own pace.

He stated, "You don’t have to remove a stone until you are ready, and you can remove the ones that are least difficult for you, but remember you can always construct the wall again."

God told her that he had been aware of her pain and had sent others who had once been prisoners of their walls to throw flowers of hope over the wall to her.

He explained to her that tearing down the wall would entail her facing her fears and taking the risk of letting others into her life.

God said, "You will never be alone, I will always be with you. I will put others in your life who will help you as you will help others."

When Sally had became free from the confines of her wall she began to walk the land and every time she came across a wall that someone had built due to fear and pain she would throw a flower of hope to them, remembering that she was not alone nor were they.
