The Complicated Heart: Loving Even When It Hurts
How do you forgive when the wound is still open?
People often ask Sarah, “How did you forgive your alcoholic mother?”
How do you forgive someone who carelessly brushed aside your pain, who caused such destruction, and who doesn’t show remorse? How do you know when to stay and when to go?
In The Complicated Heart, you will travel through Sarah’s story with her, from age 14 and beyond, as she wrestles with these very questions. Prepare yourself: she holds nothing back.
If you’ve struggled with a difficult relationship, if you’ve felt torn-up and crazy and confused because of it, if you just want to know how to move forward and be okay, this story is for you.
Dysfunction does not have to be your destiny or your identity.
Victory is on the table.
What’s more: you’ll not only travel with Sarah, you’ll travel with her mom as well as you read her mom’s journal entries and letters. What goes on in the mind of the person who hurt you the most? In this story, you’ll get a rare peek into that mind and heart.
In these pages you’ll be reminded that light always finds a way in, even in the deepest darkness, and redemption and joy are possible in the midst of trauma and unmet needs. If you want to learn how to forgive when your wound is still open, heal when circumstances don’t change, and become a generational bondage-breaker, The Complicated Heart is for you.
And if not for you, for someone you know. Pass it along.
