we depressed people all have something we tell ourselves.
"i'm a loser" "he hates me" "i can't do anything right" "it's my fault my 35 year old daughter is on drugs" "oh no! i should die for the mistake i made" etc etc.
(please don't feel i am taking it lightly by saying "etc", i just want to get on with my point)
here's the challenge: what is the stinkin thinkin you have or have had, and what is the TRUTH?
example: "just because he is angry at me doesn't mean he hates me. being angry is normal. and real." "i may have made mistakes, and they may have affected my daughter, but there is no way i can take the blame for her drug problem. she is 35 for goodness sake. she had her own decision to make..."
you get the picture? let's see how this goes!
my daughter is 22, but i feel like the above. and i always feel i should die when i make mistakes. but i am human. and i will make a mistake tomorrow, and probably another one before i go to bed tonight. and i just need to learn how to live through it and not let it get me down. i don't hate on other people when they make mistakes. so why do i think everybody hates on me? and why do i hate on me? weird!
"so whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 cor 10:31
"therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that so easily entangles, and let us run w/perseverance the race marked out for us." Hebrews
