How Do Feelings And Emotions Work?
Time Wasting Emotions And Thoughts To Try To Stop!
Feelings Can Be Hurt Sometimes Very Easily!
1. Refrain From Comparing Yourself To Others.
When you compare yourself to others, it is like comparing your insides to someone else’s outward appearance, which in most cases, you will end up on the short end of the stick.
Stay in your own lane, and be sure you are doing the best you can. Appreciate the person that God created you to be with both your strengths and weaknesses.
2. Resist Entertaining Regrets of The Past.
Like my brother, Tom taught me years ago that if I did all I could do to make the situation the best that I could, then turn the page and refuse to remain enslaved in remorse or bitterness.
Try to learn from the situation, then move on. If you don’t, you’ll be kept a prisoner in the memories of the past. Ask God to help you with letting the situation go.
3. Reflect On Negative Comments Others Say To You.
Before you reject negative comments, others say, be sure that they are untruthful. Dismissing something true can be harmful and cause more problems. So be sure that what the critics are saying is not true.
If what they say has any truth, reflect on the fact, and apply it to your life to become a better person.
4. Redirect Unnecessary Drama Into Your Life.
People are people, and there will always be some level of drama in life. What you want to avoid are the relationships your efforts are not appreciated.
Also, the other person becomes, draining, and generally toxic instead of supportive, and uplifting. I am not saying to dump them off at the curb, but I am speaking to guard your heart and not allow them to drag you down emotionally, mentally, physically, or even spiritually.
Sometimes we need to put others on the back burner for a while. People have their issues, but sometimes their problems can be too overwhelming and might need spiritual or professional help.
5. Realize True Happiness Comes From God.
It doesn’t matter at all how much money you have or do not have in the bank, or what title you may have in the world. External accomplishments can be excellent, but if you allow your happiness to depend upon external affirmation, you will never find true happiness.
True happiness begins with a good relationship with Jesus Christ and knows what His will for your life is and how to accomplish it.
Do Our Feelings Need Healing? How To Resolve Things?
