Hello my lovely sisters! So I've been recognizing some lies I've been telling myself and believing. Today I was babysitting kids at VBS and I got kind of impatient and stern and kind of yelled at them. And then I thought, "Uh, you're a terrible person and a terrible babysitter and now the kids won't like you anymore." Then I remembered Heather's post and thought, "That's a lie I'm telling myself and I'm just hurting myself. I could just be more patient and relaxed. It doesn't mean I'm a jerk forever if I'm not wonderful for a minute." (It's more like "I acted nice! Wow!" haha) So I guess I'm just thankful that I'm starting to call out lies when I tell them because that's the first step to (mostly successfully) battling them. As I battle lies, I know it'll definitely be better for how I view myself because now I'll be trying to view myself how God views me and not how Satan does. And I'm also happy cause I got to talk to a girlfriend today about self-image and I think it was encouraging on both ends. Sorry for my randomness, but I just feel so happy.
