Mood Swings

“Comfort ye, comfort ye my people,” (Isaiah 40:1)

Dear Julie:

I’m going through a lot. I feel annoyed and aggravated at times. Some things happened between me and someone. I don’t know how to trust them. I feel unloved at times but in love. I feel my attitude and mood swings are bad at times. –Mood Swings


Dear Mood Swings:

Dr. James Dobson wrote a book called “Emotions, Can You Trust Them?” Emotions are good in that life would be drab and boring without them. But we make mistakes if we put too much emphasis on them. That said, trust is critically important in relationships and, once lost, is hard to regain. It takes time. But it can be done.

What you need to focus on are the facts. Is this someone generally a good person with high morals and trustworthiness? Is he/she generally supportive and kind to you? Is this person someone you truly love?

If so, then be willing to give them another chance. If they blow it again, you’ll have to decide whether you want to go on living like this. There’s that saying, “fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

May God grant you wisdom and peace. Julie
