Co-Dependency:
Don’t give away your soul lest you be tempted. Our soul is our heart, mind and emotions. Many times we are tempted and sometimes asked to give of ourselves and soon find the one we are giving to is just as empyt as when we just began giving. There is no way we can be everything for everyone.
In giving any of this away, we suffer and findd ourselves empty. I liken this lesson to to Galatians 3:13 “Every man hung on a tree is cursed,” therefore, only Christ can save!! We are not called to save others or be everything for anyone. Amen!

I’m here to guide in following his plan for an anxiety free life. He provides for us freedom from worry and comfort in his presence. by the Holy Spirits power, peace will prevail.

“Habit is overcome by habit”
Thomas Kempis
Here are 4 steps to peace…
1. Be open to a different way of thinking in order to see change in habits and anger
2. Know your Triggers
3. Take time outs
4. Relax and deep breath in Christ

Anger may be a habit for some of us. Our feelings of anger are manifested by a certain trigger. This trigger, whether it be traffic or our child coming home pregnant. There are many triggers and each of us has them. The catch is knowing when to stop the anger process. This is important, however right now let’s talk about how we interpret our trigger. This interpretation of the trigger is what sets the “pot a boiling” if you will. It is here also, where the water can be cooled or we can take time out.
When we see some of the good points of the situation at hand we can go on with a positive attitude. As with the pregnant child coming home, we see the life of a new child. As with the traffic, the realization of your arriving home safely is paramount.
With our life long beliefs setting the stage of how things should be we create habits, which become automatic. When all things are considered, anger can be made into a new habit, a habit of love and understanding. This way we develop healthy interpretations.
Without logical and healthy interpretation, anger festers sending us into a mode of uncontrollability.
Healthy interpretation promotes the recognition of one’s own anger, providing techniques and paths for proper outlets via therapeutic communication.

Life Skills: This is an opportunity to learn things you never have in the home and work setting; such as budgeting, list making and organizing other areas of your life.
