Numerous outside influences impact our souls. These can range from a traumatic childhood, lies told by loved ones to health struggles.
On top of that, we have the self-inflicted wounds brought on by our own mistakes, sins, and addictions. We deal with guilt, shame, and the consequences of poor decisions.
Here is the hard truth, everyone is dealing with their issues in some manner. Unfortunately, we do not walk through difficulties of either kind and come out unscathed. These things have an impact on our souls.
Everyone is handling their life struggles. Some do it in a healthy way, and others in an unhealthy way. But know, even avoiding our problems is our way of handling them.
