Today I just felt the need to talk about something that I feel is so important in life. I came across this quote this morning and it's just so true!
I used to be that person that always had something negative to say about others. I think it was just the way I was raised. Of course that is no excuse but it is just the truth. I had such a negative mindset and I really didn't realize just how judgemental I was at times.
I have come so far with my negative attitude. I definately owe my better attitude to my closer relationship with God.
Here are a few scriptures on this topic that are so powerful. Even if you aren't close to God these are words to live by.
“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;
Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.”
You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
I have come a long way but I definately am no where near perfect. I'm striving to be better and more positive everyday.
I feel that this ties in so much with my emotional eating and binging. The more positive I am the better I do with my eating.
Do you feel you are a positive person? What helps you to stay positive through struggles?
