It’s okay to feel really stupid sometimes. Just don’t roll around in it and relive it forever.
We all do dumb things. We are all a little bit hypocritical, too (I’ve been there).
For example, sometimes I read over advice I’ve given here, and my thought process goes something like this:
Well crap, I did that. I told people not to do that, then I did it. Whoops. OH CRAP THAT MEANS I CAN NO LONGER WRITE ANYTHING ON THIS BLOG SHAME SPIRAL OF DOOM
However, I can’t do that. And you’re not allowed to shame spiral, either.
Why? We both have a life to live. Words of wisdom to offer. Gifts God has given us. And once you and I allow ourselves to be shut down and chained by guilt or mistakes, we are rendered ineffective.
And we both know who does that.
So let’s not let that happen to us, okay? I’ll make you a deal: If you don’t let it happen to you, I won’t let it happen to me.
Let nothing silence you. You have things to say.
And God still likes you.
That’s all for tonight.
