Leslie King: LOVING THROUGH THE PAIN - How to navigate through the pain in relationships
Many of us sweep our emotional pain “under the rug” or try to push through it, only to find out that it is still there. It follows us from relationship to relationship and we wonder why the same things keep happening over and over again. We ask ourselves “when will things get better?” When will we be able to find some peace in our relationships? Have you found yourself thinking about those questions? When your relationships end leaving you with pain, what do you do?
Loving Through the Pain examines the pain which God’s children experience when they are not properly instructed on how to deal with betrayal and hurt in relationships. By carrying distrust and old mindsets into each new relationship, we miss out on God’s best for us. As you apply the principles in this book, you will be able to navigate through the pain that exist in every kind of relationship. You will learn how to forgive, let go, and move forward into the successful relationships that God wants you to have. As you learn how much God loves you, you will be able to love yourself, and in turn, love others — even when they cause you pain.
I was born and raised in Philadelphia. I have been an elementary school teacher in the public school system for the past seventeen years. I resigned my teaching position to begin a new journey as a writer and public speaker. Three years ago I began writing this book out of a burden from the pain in my own relationships and what I’ve witnessed in other people’s relationships. My goal is to continue to write to help people navigate through life’s difficult times and encourage them in their walk with God.
