Thanks for your prayers this week. My mom died on Saturday and her service is today (August 31) and burial is tomorrow. Appreciate your continued prayers for my father as he makes this transition. Because of family obligations, I have not had the time to respond to a question this week. Instead, I’m going to ask you to answer a question. Below are ten beliefs that people have that cause unnecessary suffering.
Ten Beliefs that Mess Up Your Life
1. Life should be fair.
2. Hard is bad.
3. I should be able to have my cake and eat it too.
4. It’s all my fault.
5. It’s never my fault.
6. I can control the outcome.
7. If I wait, the problem will go away.
8. My choices only affect me.
9. I can’t do it.
10. I don’t need God.
Friend, How and when did you recognize these beliefs as lies, and what did you do next? Is there one or two in particular that have caused you unnecessary suffering?
