Okay, so I was pretty dramatic last night. Sometimes emotions are a whirlwind, and I don’t know how to step out of them. I did pray and was mercifully given some peace so I could sleep. I’m so thankful for a Father in Heaven who can help me see things from a different perspective.
Today, my friend recommended this podcast to me called “Bold New Mom,” and I’m excited to listen to more of it because what I’ve heard so far is amazing and right up my alley of interests.
From episode 97: “You’re not in charge of anyone else’s emotions… You are responsible for your own emotions.”
I need to work on not having pity parties over people civilly disagreeing with me. I need to work on allowing people to have emotional reactions to what I write. I need to work on allowing others to believe whatever they choose to believe about what I write, or else a blog will never work out for me. I also need to assume there is a bit of truth in any critical comment and see if I discover any errors I’ve made by paying attention to their critique.
I am always grateful for good things to work on.
