Sometimes I’m good at knowing the right words to say to seem like I’ve got it together when really I’m stuck in my wilderness. What good is being a martyr and a victim to my natural instincts when it only numbs my feelings and causes me to lash out like a viper and shun with unkindness?
After I do what I’ll regret I come to myself and wonder why people retreat-not realizing it’s because of my actions. The truth hurts my tender feelings and so in order to feel safe I might avoid the truth and escape into a fantasy world through TV, movies, novels, video games, drugs, inappropriate behavior and social media but escaping only lasts for a while. What remedy lasts forever?
Remedy: *Strength; *Truth; *Improved self-worth.
The remedy causes me to:
- Think good things about myself
- Try to improve
- Embrace good and ignore bad
- Know I’m included
- Believe that promises include me
- Realize I deserve it
How I feel about myself is how I treat others. I hope for the best but when I haven’t overcome my natural instincts sometimes they kick in and, for a moment, I become my lower self. The remedy heals.
