A Cruel World
Cruelty is convincing a beautiful young girl or a beautiful young boy that they are ugly because they don’t match your definition of beauty even though they look exactly the way God intended them to look.
Hateful is watching them struggle with their confidence and suffer from self esteem issues because you treat them as outcast rather than embrace and love them.
Evil is blaming them for being weak when they can no longer handle the burden of being constructed in God’s image when man clearly believes that fitting into his definition of perfection is more important than living God’s purpose.
What a cruel world we live in.

I just came back here to say again that this resonates within me. This was something I knew, lived close to. And I struggled with it and I made it out of it, rose above it, but not without the inevitable scratches, scars, and memories that still make me cringe when I think of them. I wrote it all down, and promised myself I’d raise my children differently. It stops with me.
..and we’re all thankful that you made it out of it and are now blessing us with beautiful words to grow on. I appreciate you.
