An open letter to the girl addicted to sex

Catie gives us a powerful and honest look into the world of women who struggle with pornography and masturbation.

So much in this post spoke to me, but this ““Girls don’t struggle with that stuff.” And that’s a big fat freaking lie. It’s lies like these that prevent confession, cheating women of the freedom they could experience in overcoming this sin. Because when we experience the freedom to confess even the darkest of our darkness, we can fight together. We don’t want to struggle well, we want to QUIT THE STRUGGLE, putting the sin to death and chasing after the redemption story Jesus writes for us daily. And God has designed us to do that TOGETHER” is the truth! And as long as people, especially the church, think women do not struggle then true freedom can not be had.

IT’S NOT JUST A MANS STRUGGLE!

I wonder if I’m a girl you’d think struggles with sex.

Isn’t that what we all wonder? Maybe it’s not sex, pornography, or even masturbation, but you struggle secretly with a dark sin and wonder if others would ever guess. For me though?

It’s sex. Or at least it has been for several years. Sometimes I feel like I’ve finally overcome it, but then I fall short again and my heart sinks and the insecurities come crashing in just to remind me of how disgusting I am.

Things Seen Cannot Be Unseen

One of the hardest things I had to fight while quitting my 30 year addiction to porn was the images stuck in head. Even now, it's a struggle.

How Long Lord?

What a simple yet very profound question. One I know has been asked many, many times in my life and by others. You don't have to be an addict, of any sort, to feel the need to ask that question. You could simply be struggling with finances, dealing with co-worker issues, battling depression or praying… Continue reading How Long Lord?

Testimony of Freedom

There are several things I have learned over the years in struggling with my porn addiction. One is in the fact that what works for one person may not work for another. Marriage does not cure a pre-existing porn addiction. It can not be done without an accountability partner. And despite what some people will… Continue reading Testimony of Freedom
