7 Reasons To Deal With Your Stuff

bttnsuitcases.jpg

It's impossible to grow up without picking up any unhealthy patterns, regardless of how great your parents were. We all have some bags that need to be unpacked and put away. Here are 7 great reasons to stop stuffing your issues and get healthy!

  1. If you don't take care of your issues, you will pass them on to your kids and grand kids.
  2. Your marriage relationship will go to a level you've only dreamed of when you see things with a clear perspective.
  3. Living with stress and turmoil on the inside will make you physically ill.
  4. Being spiritually, physically, and emotionally healthy makes it possible for you to do your part in bringing heaven to earth.
  5. Jesus paid too high a price for you to keep living below your potential.
  6. As you humble yourself (embracing vulnerability) God will release grace to you.
  7. You can travel faster in peace than any other way!

I would love to hear any more reasons you can think of.

I recently bought an air fryer. So many people asked me about it, that I decided to make a video review. Check it out!

Don't Spew on the Ones You Love

I bet that if you had a stomach virus, you would never intentionally walk up to your loved ones and puke in their faces. Gross! Who would ever do that to anyone, much less than to the people who really matter to them.

Reasonable people try to stay away from others when they're sick. They do it out of mercy and kindness. They stay away until they are well, and no longer contagious. If the sickness doesn't seem to be passing, they get to a doctor to do their best to resolve the situation. Being sick is no fun for the one who is sick or for the rest of the family.

Why is it that we let emotional issues go unsorted for years and years? When the emotional pain buttons in our lives get pushed, the fallout hurts the people around us at least as much it hurts us.

You know the secret areas of pain that you keep hidden and hope that no one ever finds out about? I have news for you, people may not know the specifics, but they certainly feel the painful symptoms.

If you aren't willing to get healthy for your sake, at least do the hard work of getting yourself sorted out for the sake of the people you love. You really don't want people around you to feel like they have to spend their whole lives walking on eggshells.

Don't delay. Get the help you need. Make an appointment with a counselor or reach out to get with a mature, trusted mentor.

Action point: I recommend you follow Danny Silk - Loving on Purpose and considering joining a small group with The Ultimate Journey.

If you don't deal with your issues, everyone around you will have to.
