Life isn’t always sunshine and skittles. Christian women get that. We don’t just go to church because religion is cool. We know we need Jesus. Read my posts about christian living here.
After I dropped my kids off at school one-day last week, I was talking to my husband. I was telling him about the day before when I had been at the school dropping off some items the kids had forgotten. There was a substitute in the office and when she tried to verify what grade my daughter was in I couldn’t remember. I had a horrible migraine and I told her as much. I tried to laugh it off, but when I was relaying the conversation to my husband I told him I definitely wasn’t going to be winning any mother-of-the-year awards.
He didn’t laugh.
Instead, he said he wished I wouldn’t be so hard on myself. That he didn’t know anyone who could handle what I have been through as well as I have. (He is most definitely my biggest fan and number one supporter.)
The reason I remembered this conversation so well was because the day before I had actually published a blog post about self-condemnation.
Apparently it didn’t stick.
I needed to go back and read it again.
In it, I share three questions to ask yourself when faced with self-condemnation. And that’s just I needed.
