My goal for this week was to explain the title… but life happens. To be transparent, when I write my posts, this usually isn’t already known knowledge I’m dispensing. My blogs are more about figuring things out because I learn best by reflecting on life and trying to find patterns in the world … [Read more...]
There Should Be Worse Anxiety Problems in the World (Pt 1)
I remember riding the limo to the cemetery for my dad’s burial service staring out the window thinking how all the day to day things I would worry about were all so meaningless. They might have felt like they mattered in the moment, but they really meant nothing in the face of death. That’s the … [Read more...]
Sometimes It’s Best Not to Get What You Want
The last few weeks I’ve been writing about how the devil can use discouragement to mess with our heads. Another big way he messes with us is to plant doubt that God doesn’t care or even exist. The most likely time we’ll think this is when we pray for something we really want and may even need, but … [Read more...]
The 7 Basic Times in Life
How would you describe life? It’s a tough question. How I’d describe it is affected by what’s going on around me and the emotion I feel at the time, but maybe I’m fickle. I don’t like my food mixing, so I certainly have a fickleness about me: “My corn is touching my potatoes! My meal is ruined!” … [Read more...]
Discouragement & a Fun Story
Last week I talked about being discouraged, which is one of the 12 ways the devil can mess with us. The next night both my cars were broken into – good times. Although I’m not sure what you call it when you leave your car unlocked and the person/jerk face/cockroach simply opens your door. Maybe … [Read more...]
How Do You Deal with the Rough Times?
In late October I wrote a blog, “12 Ways the devil can Mess with You”; that’s when things got fun... fun is being used in the sarcastic sense. In that lesson I shared how I have largely overcome the main way the devil messed with me in my younger years (the voice telling me I’m stupid) and how it’s … [Read more...]
Do You Want Fairness or to be the Better Person?
People suck... is that too honest? I’m including myself on that list, so it’s okay. Sometimes it’s hard not to say or do something I shouldn’t, but what can you expect when I’m a person? I might be a therapist, but sometimes I forget to bite my tongue and I say something I shouldn’t. I find the … [Read more...]
Should I Take Medication?
I was recently talking to someone who asked me if I thought they should take anxiety medication. I’m not a doctor; I cannot tell people what to do in regards to taking medication, but I can still give some thoughts (but again, I’m not a doctor). In this situation, I started by asking, “On a scale … [Read more...]
