I’ve never been a quitter

Wednesday, November 06, 2019

For the first time I actually quit something I started. My heart was not into it from the beginning which is always a red flag. I just don’t seem to fit in or have anything in common. In the past I would stick it out because I paid money, signed up, said I would, or whatever. After last Tuesday’s meltdown I don’t think I will ever try another women’s bible study. I am guarded, and when I open up I reveal too much. I don’t accept criticism well and take things too personal. Add scripture to that and I feel like a failure And brings me down too low. I can read the books, have my own devotions, meditate and journal, I keep thinking back to the judges comment “now they are having to find their new normal” I’m preparing for Monday when our first guy gets released from jail and do I tell my daughter or not worry her and she not need to know. He does one thing he is in prison for 5 years and he will be watched closely.

    If you are not being 'loved and cared for ' in a group like that it is not the right one. You are a wonderful lady who makes good choices, hugs.

    Your blog made me think words in Kenny Rogers song, The Gamber:
    "You've got to know when to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run"
    It is good to pay attention to the inner voice that told you your heart was not into it... Give yourself permission to do what is right.
    All you need is Jesus: 1 Corinthians 2:16 tells us we have the mind of Christ, so if you call on Jesus, He will give you His wisdom for your situation. His peace and comfort.
    Take care of you. emoticon

    There is no shame in quitting what we feel isn't right for us. I can quit something at any time without a second thought. While it's great to follow-through and complete stuff (which I also do), it's freeing to give yourself permission to quit.
