My pastor said something that has stuck with me:
“Your feelings lie.”
Work has been a swirling vortex of condescension, anger, and stress. A tidal wave of not accepting where we are on a project. We’ve been behind for months. Months. And yet at no point has acceptance of this fact been had. No moment of admitting:
- Hey, we messed up.
- Yeah, we are behind… BUT let’s move forward, as a team, and do our best.
My feelings have been lying to me; my body absorbing the workplace maelstrom of emotions.
I’m done with feeling stressed towards this project.
I’m done being lied to by my feelings.
If anything, I’m beginning to find the current situation at work humorous.
People have got to chill.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?
– Jeremiah 17:9 (ESV)
