Welcome back to Timeout Tuesday – an opportunity to right your thoughts and clear your perspective.
Are there any circumstances in your life that make you feel mocked and ridiculed? Circumstances that cause you shame and discouragement?
Are there issues in your marriage that you hope no one finds out about? Do you have struggles with your kids that seem to slap you in the face with insult and embarrassment?
Everyone has life to deal with. Everyone has issues to deal with. Everyone has frustrations and aggravations.
The problem is when these issues carry on.
Many of us have sought help for our issues. We’ve read books. We’ve attended workshops. We’ve joined groups, virtually and in person. We’ve gone to counseling and therapy. We’ve practiced daily affirmations and fasted. Even still some issues persist.
So, we learn to live with them. We develop pathologies and coping mechanisms to deal with these issues until finally they become “normal”.
There’s a peace in giving up, isn’t there? It doesn’t feel good to admit, but it’s true. There’s a calming escape that comes when you accept the issues you can’t fix.
