How do I become who I want to be? – Part 3

 How do I become who I want to be?   Part 3

It’s funny that we then reflect on the situation once we’ve climbed down off the emotional high and sometimes have to laugh at ourselves and our OTT (over the top) reactions. It’s not so funny when you’re in the middle of the reaction though, is it!

But, it is precisely this process of reflection, as well as the willingness to learn, that will help us to grow and develop healthy new character traits. After all, we can’t keep going round and round the same bush and expect to ever get anywhere useful. So, let’s take a look at the situation when the emotional heat has cooled down and learn the lessons that need to be learned.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Why did I get angry?
  • What am I afraid of?
  • No really, what am I afraid of? (What’s at the root?)
  • That fear is the ‘fact’ of the situation, but what is the ‘Truth’ (what does God have to say about it?)
  • Replace the ‘fact’ with the ‘Truth’

Determine to recognize when that fear rears its ugly head again and try to remember the lesson learned. Slowly but surely, your reactions to that stimuli will change and soon you will not react from that fear ever again!

Now you will be mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.
