Lately I’ve been feeling very overwhelmed. I don’t know if there have been too many extra activities, work is started to continually doubt my own feelings. I compare myself to other people (never a good idea) and say, “If they can do it, why can’t I?” I think, “maybe there is something wrong with me”. For so long, I have been crippled by fear. Afraid of change (good or bad), afraid of the unknown, afraid of what people will think. My group video last night spoke about trusting yourself, and trusting God. If something doesn’t feel right, it’s not! My feelings are valid, more stressful than normal, or my priorities have changed.. But the other day I ‘snapped’. I felt like I was failing at everything, and the things that I felt were most important weren’t being accomplished. I needed change, and I couldn’t take it anymore. It took me a while to get to this point, because I and I should not ignore them. I don’t want to live in fear! Fear is the absence of faith, and I want to live faithfully.
