Not in a dramatic way, but in a "I can't get my act together" kind of way?
Sometimes it comes when I read other blogs.
Then I hear and believe lies.
"Gosh they are put together." "They take cute pictures even when they have adopted, or when they are in Africa" "They manage to blog every day, in the midst of life" "You don't have anything to say, stop posting!"
Sometimes it comes when I see others.
"They have it together, you don't" "their kids don't throw tantrums, see what a failure of a mom you are?" "They have time to do their hair/makeup, why don't you?" "They have a (not minivan), look what a dork you are" (this one is sort of false now...but..maybe creeps back sometimes) "that girl ran a 50k today, you can barely run a fast 10k, you will never be able to do that"...
Sometimes it comes when I am playing with my kids and get "easily angered" when they throw fits.
Other times i feel like I am hearing these lies all throughout the day, and most of them hold little to no value.
Because I am a Christian and live my life to honor God, clearly quite imperfectly, but leaning on God to guide me....I realize that these lies are not of God. They are from Satan...putting lies in where I am weak. He does this to all of us.
