The number one way to become a better you… quit believing the lies you’re telling yourself. That’s honestly the bottom line. Unfortunately, there’s not a magic wand to make that happen overnight. There are things we need to do, steps we need to take, to get there.
My insecurities go waaay back. You name it, I didn’t like it. And then, when I got married, and had kids, I felt like I was failing them, so it got even worse. Negativity had such a hold on me that there were days I didn’t even want to leave the house. I felt trapped in discouragement and defeat. It’s truly by God’s grace that I am who and where I am today. Finding this freedom opened a whole new world to me.
Don’t get me wrong…I still have my moments. I mean I’m human right? Freedom doesn’t mean it all goes away. It means my negative thoughts happen a whole lot less and when they do creep in, I have the tools to help me.
Here’s a few tools that help me when negative thoughts creep in…
Pray! Pray! Pray!
Get into Gods word
Ask friends to pray for you
Remind yourself of Gods truth of who you are
A lot of positive self-talk
Becoming a better you is really all about building your personal & spiritual growth. Being intentional about creating habits that add value to your life and to who you are. Getting rid of things that don’t add value.
