Talk Back…

Yeah.. Talk back to your feelings.

Very often we put far too much emphasis on our feelings. We presume, assume and think everything has to feel good or it’s not worthwhile. We freely say things like ; “I don’t feel like eating”, “I don’t feel like studying”, “I don’t feel like going out”, “I don’t feel like working”, “I don’t feel like reading my Bible”, or “I feel like eating more”, “I feel like having another drink”, “I feel like sleeping in today” etc.

Don’t give your feelings so much authority. Feelings are highly unreliable, they cloud our sense of reasoning and logical reasoning may not be within reach. If you allow them, they will control and manipulate you. We’ve got to learn how to manage our feelings and challenge our emotions. Your emotions are supposed to serve you and not the other way round.

For one to be truly successful, he or she must master his feelings. We shouldn’t be at the mercy of our emotions or feelings because the truth is, if there’s nothing we can’t hide, it’s when we are broken inside-Oscar Wilde, John Lennon.

It’s time to talk back to your feelings. With Jesus as the master of your life, you can master your feelings. Titus 2:11 “The grace of God teaches us to say No”. His grace helps us to say No when we truly need to say No. Are you battling a weight problem? Before you ever walk into the kitchen and open the refrigerator door, you have already begun to talk to yourself about eating.

If you are serious, you will have to challenge some of those subconscious attitudes about food. When next you hear your mind saying, “I just have to grab a snack or I’ll die”. You have to say, “No I’m not going to die”. In fact, I will be healthier if I don’t have a snack. Apply this trick to every other aspect of your life that needs talking back to.

Remember, the way you think determines the way you feel“.

    1. That’s great Ma’am. The truth is worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength and that’s why we need to cultivate the habit of replacing bad thoughts with good thoughts at all times.
      I’m sure the therapy helped you a lot. Thanks for sharing with us.
