God can honor your losses and even restore and heal you. God wants to bless you and uses all of our losses and hurts to bring you closer to Him. (Jeremiah 29:11) As you accept yourself, you can talk about your losses. You need not keep any aspect of your past or present a secret. As you feel your pain, God can heal your pain.
