I haven’t worked on any new Loki in a long time - which is a travesty. There’s so much new Tom going around I don’t even know how to keep up! Found this sweet guy partly finished in a folder, & thought he should get some attention & see the light of day.
Oh Loki………you’re still my favorite.

An Open Letter to Those I’ve Hurt.

If I have ever hurt you, angered you, frustrated you, or disappointed you in any way, then this letter is for you.

Now if this letter does apply to you, then by all means take every word I say to heart and make it personal. Trust me when I say that I wish that I could apologize to you directly, but we all know that the number of people that this letter is for, is way too vast for me to write every single one individually….

I’m sorry. I’m sorry for breaking a promise, for wounding you with my words. I’m sorry for making you mad, for being too much, for being too little. I’m sorry for doing something I swore I never would. I’m sorry for not living up to the standard that you held me to. Let me reiterate once again…I am very sorry. Whether you have forgiven me or not, I truly truly mean that from the absolute bottom of my heart.

First, let me clear something up. My intentions were obviously not to do any of those things. On the contrary, I consider myself to be a people pleaser. I don’t like conflict. Just the other day, a friend of mine informed me that someone I considered an acquaintance, was not fond of me, at all. They didn’t like me for some reason. They “didn’t like how I acted.” Now having people be upset with me causes me anxiety. I thrive on being liked and on being in “good graces” with others. So I went to my room, and I cried. I cried because I was seriously wounded that someone I barely spoke to didn’t like me. So in that moment I had a very scary self revelation. I care way too much about what people think about me.

That is one of my many fatal flaws; attempting to establish my identity on how others perceive me and/or establishing it on how I think they perceive me. And let me just say…that that is incredibly exhausting. But one thing that’s even more tiring than that… is harboring and carrying the guilt that comes from causing harm to others.

“Guilt is to the spirit, what physical pain is to the body.

”I am at constant war with myself. I keep going back and forth between “I need to let this go and forgive myself,” and “I really hurt this person, I don’t deserve to be forgiven for this.”

I’m sorry. My heart is tired.

But I can’t keep dwelling in this shame. In this feeling that I have failed, in this feeling that I am not good enough, or plainly….just enough. The enemy has and will continue to aim his attack at my identity for one simple reason. If he can rob me of the truth of who I am, then he can steal everything that God has destined for me to become while I am here on this earth. So I will hold onto this truth: I am a child of God. I am a beloved daughter of the King who is deserving of forgiveness on the account of the blood of Christ. In Him, I find redemption. (Ephesians 1:7)

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as he is.” 1 John 3:1 – 2

So even though you may not, I forgive myself. I refuse to continue to hold on to regrets and past mistakes, though they are countless. I vow to myself that I will dwell in how Jesus sees me from now on. Shameless. Sinless. Worthy. As opposed to seeing myself as I’ve been referred to by others before. Hypocritical. Sinful. Disappointing.

Here’s my prayer for myself:

I pray that everything that hinders me from fully receiving God’s love and grace, falls away. I pray that I can learn to truly forgive. Forgive others, and forgive myself. I pray that I learn what it truly means to be a Child of God, and to have my identity be deeply rooted in Him. I pray that whoever this letter applies to, knows that I am sorry. I pray that they know that hurting them…hurt me. And I pray that they know that I do love them, though my actions may have fallen short.

If you read this and you can relate to my struggle, then I encourage you to seek biblical guidance in being able to see yourself through God’s eyes. The Lord knows I’m beyond thankful for the person He’s sent me recently, that has done an incredible job of reminding me of whom my worth is based on, and whose daughter I am.

So friends, I want for you what someone who’s dear to my heart, wanted for me:

“I want to encourage you to seek out your identity in Christ. Seek out how God truly sees you. Search and discover how deep and how wide and how big Christ’s love for you is, because once you do, you’ll finally understand how I’m choosing to see you. And you’ll never question your worth again.” -E
