30-day blog journal - Day 27

Day 27 - my worst habit
I have to say that I have several bad habits, however, the worst is probably my nervous worrying.  I get crazy, like I start asking a million questions (my poor husband), and I start getting really worried.  I can't stop it sometimes.  I will realize it in the middle of a downward spiral and try to break out...but then sometimes I can't pull myself out.

Don't worry - yes I see a counselor!  It started many years ago, but after our children died I have been getting worse.  Now I talk to someone professional about it, and I feel better.  I have started to write down when it starts happening, and it makes it easier for me to see that I am being totally irrational.

I also stare at this bible verse, and try to make it part of me:

2 Timothy 1:7
"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

Oh my goodness Amanda! I am the same way!! It's good to know I am not alone. I meditate on this verse daily as well. Keeping you in prayers!

I can relate. I do this sometimes as well, though I'm not as bad as you lol. But I do understand completely.

That's a really nice bible verse. Thank you for sharing it with us.
