Your “But” is a roadblock that usually gets in the way. It pops up when you feel lazy, intimidated, scared, anxious, overwhelmed, having a lack of confidence, or when you are stepping out of your comfort zone. It is a quick response or an excuse to avoid doing something that we don’t want to do.
It rises quickly and stays, seating roots that make it hard to get rid of and then at times consuming you so much that it can create self-doubt, negative feelings, resentful emotions, anger and even depression.
Recognizing it quickly and taking a positive stance against it before it reigns is the key. Seeking help from a professional or from a friend for strength and comfort can be the change you need. Knowing the signs before it is upon you and standing your ground against it in the beginning is a win.
There is power within each and every one if you only dig deep and be humble enough to seek help when we need it. Don’t let pride stand in the way, causing you to battle it alone.
Be strong, fight the fight, never give in and, “Get your But out of your way” and you will have victory over Darkness.
