But you just say YES like usual?
Ut fringilla erat id arcu gravida iaculis. Vivamus nec est tellus. Duis feugiat vulputate eros, in auctor augue pharetra non.
That is what drives me. As a licensed physician specializing in psychiatry, I have been blessed with the ability and the opportunity to see into people's lives...into the real lives...like few others. I count it as a privilege, one I don't take lightly.
As a result, I have been able to see clear patterns that we tend to fall into if we are not careful to guard what we allow in our lives (thoughts, people, entertainment, etc.). In fact, because of what my patients have taught me, I have been able to see these patterns in my own life. And that has led to emotional wisdom. And FREEDOM!
At one point, my identity was so confused and people pleasing was such a problem that I ended up in the hospital with chest pains. And my physical heart was NOT the problem; it was my heart heart.
The Biblical definition of "heart" is thought by many scholars to encompass the mind, will and emotions. As I learned to recognize feelings and thoughts that were based on lies, I became healthier and better able to manage relationships, identity, and parenting. I learned to say no when I needed to while still honoring God others as well as providing for my own needs.
By implementing godly self-care, boundaries and coping skills, I now live a richer, healthier life. I'm not perfect and never will be. But I am able to say "Yes" and "No" based on what I really think rather than to gain someone's approval or for fear that I will be rejected. And I pay more attention to my thoughts and feelings, guarding what (and who!) I allow into my life. It's much more peaceful!
