But My Way is Better!
I am not the best of navigators. I tend to get turned around and lost. I have a poor sense of direction. With the advent of GPS on our phones, it has saved my husband countless hours responding to my frantic calls about being lost. Yet, even so, there are times when I still think my way is better and ignore what the GPS is telling me. But, if I had just listened to my GPS, it would have steered me around the traffic jam; but no, I am stuck in traffic because I was sure my way was better.
Today, we can get lost when we try to direct our lives all by ourselves, but often it ends up just creating more stress and anxiety. Depression can enter the picture when we see how badly we've blown it. Other emotions of anger, regret, envy, jealousy, contempt, scorn, despair, sadness and more can fill our hearts when we try to be our own god. We are just so bad at it.
Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of intelligence and emotional strength. Even therapists go to counseling from time to time. Life is hard! There is only one person I know who could navigate life perfectly and even He had to talk all the time with his Father for strength and help. If you need help, ask for it. Counseling can help you "reset" the GPS in your life.
