Re: [IP] Expressing Emotions -- FRUSTRATED!!!



I've been following the thread about dealing with anger and frustrations
because of diabetes. I'm only the mom of a diabetic 8 yo, so I don't profess
to truly understand those of you who are there and living it valiantly, but
I heard something this morning that I thought worth passing along....I have
give up hope for a better past. Wow, sure everyone needs to vent but to the
extent possible, maybe we all need to let go of what we can of the past,
deal with today, and hope for tomorrow. Good luck, folks...you're all my
heroes!

It isn't a sin to be frustrated, mad, upset and down right hurt
because of this stuff we have to endure, put up with and face.  You
can even express all that to God of you want too and you will be
understood.  It probably won't change things much, but you will be
being honest.  My theological education and pastoral experience
leads me to this conclusion, along with my experience as a person
with diabetes.

please.

One of the greatest documents that I studied said "the measurement
that you use to judge other people will be applied to you."    If we
carry this in our mind we can temper our response...
