A Piece on Emotional Fitness

Emotional Fitness is a piece of whole body health and fitness...I am reading a really interesting book and I felt like a lot of people are struggling with this emotional issue these days, so I shall share a little information with you...

"Are you touchy? Would you like to be delivered from supersensitivity? If so, part of the answer is to face the fact that if you are touchy, the problem is not with those who constantly offend you or hurt your feelings, but it is with you and your super-sensitive nature. Being secure will heal you from being touchy.

95% of the time when people hurt your feelings, they didn't intend to do so. That means if you get your feelings hurt easily, it's because you choose to. The good news is that you can also choose not to. I really encourage you to lay aside supersensitivity. You will feel so much better about yourself and others.

It is interesting that people who are supersentitive about what others do to them are often totally insenstitive to what they do to others. Many times people are supersensitive because they have been hurt in the past, and so their bruised emotions are easily pained. That is why they are so touchy.

In short, look to God to fulfill your needs, not people, because He knows what is best for you."

Fav Quote for today: " If we don't do what we can do, then God won't do what we can't do. If we will do what we can do, God will do what we can't do. It's just that simple." ~J.M.
