Jeremiah 9:23-24 (ESV) 23 Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, 24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.”
When I think about these 2 passages , in reference to telling your story. I believe you need to ask yourself what are you boasting about? Are you boasting about the pain that you have gone through for the last 16 years, or are you boasting about him and your redemption. The love and grace that you have experienced through him.
What a beautiful name

It’s a good question. One of the first things the Lord pointed out to me is that I took pride in my wounds…it’s what self-pity is really about. I measured my pain as more significant than others and it was the mechanism by which I had received attention my whole life (I was invisible otherwise). It was huge to let my wounds go and no longer talk about them or use them to get that emotional cookie. It was a courageous move to be OK. I had to no longer be addicted to my wounds and what they gave me.
Hope your recovery is going well! Hugs to you guys!
