Today was great but also emotional. There is something about opening up about things you thought you were over with.
Today I learned that even though my upbringing was not the traditional tragic experience, there were things I lacked and didn’t realize it until I became an adult.
Today I got deeper into learning my triggers and how to overcome those situations. Can we control each thought in our heads? No, but we can control if we dwell or believe in that thought.
Today I learned what caused my depression. Emotions from childhood, my adult life, kids, work, marriage, job combined can cause this if we are not aware.
I’m learning to control my thought process. I’m learning to express myself. I’m learning to get outside my comfort zone. Dealing with my emotions is uncomfortable but it’s needed in my process.
My homework is to complete a sheet each day for Positive Thoughts and Negative Thoughts. It will let me know if I am constantly thinking negatively or positively. I encourage you to do the same. (I attached the worksheet) 😃
Negative or positive mindset?
Which will we choose?
Philippians 4:8-9 (MSG)
“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.”
