Overcomer is a movie, same creators as War Room (Excellent movie by the way). I understand that it’s a Christian based movie, I understand that it’s for the greater good. But OVERCOMER? REALLY?
Abuse victims do NOT overcome abuse, alcoholics do NOT overcome alcohol. There is no way that we can build a bridge and walk over our traumas! NONE!
If you have “overcome” trauma, are you sure you are healed? I mean, I am an abuse survivor and I still work THROUGH the issues every. single. day! If I hear someone’s story, 9 times out of 10, I’m affected and need some alone time to focus and work THROUGH it! If my husband touches me in a way that my ex did to hurt me, I work THROUGH it! I will never OVERCOME abuse.
What about you? How do you feel about this word? It’s not just the movie, it’s people, everywhere. They say oh so you overcame abuse? Not me; I still work on it! Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts on the word.
Remember…. God loves you and so do I.
