Self control


Friday, March 22, 2013

Today I am working on my thoughts. Keeping positive thoughts in mind about relationships can be very hard. I have been letting people who I love and want to be close to steal my joy.
For some reason I want to turn to food for comfort. I in general love people, I have compassion on those who have hurt or used me and I am forgiving letting unkind words go unnoticed and just move on. And then when someone comes into your life and can use this against you it is really shocking.
Some times those you love get involved with these types of people and bring them into their own controlling web.
Well the bottom line of all this jibber jabber is a lot of the time I must let go. Let go of that relationship I once had and the relationships I thought I could have had and see what God has planned in my life. I believe life does not just happen there are reasons for the the mountain top experiences and the low times in life and learning how to cope is another lesson learned.
What does food have to do with it. Well my ideas is that I find comfort in eating but this also is craziness because food does not give comfort. Jesus and people can only give comfort. Look to the Lord and caring friends and that is where you will find comfort. emoticon

    I have heard, and often repeated, that like at the Last Supper, one out of twelve people can't be trusted. It seems that at times in our lives, we run into a lot of those "ones." But that also means that the vast majority of people are very good and trustworthy. I struggle with eating too much, too. Just keep doing the best you can.

  Sometimes people, family members or friends, really do want to steal our joy.
Seems like miserable folks often want all of us to be miserable along with them...
Well----- Don't let that happen. Find joy in God's blessings, and choose to be happy!
