It really helped me quickly think through the emotions I was experiencing and deal with them. Putting how I felt on one side helped me get my feelings out (which I need to do; I tend to stuff them down) and then writing who I am despite these feelings helped me combat these negative feelings stirring around in my heart. I felt a zillion times better after I did this. Truly. I felt like a lot of the heaviness of my heart had been lifted because I knew that the things on the left side weren't true. Satan could not keep me down any longer!!
Just a few hours ago, I transferred these over to my prayer/notes journal and put some scriptures to help me remember who I am when I get all caught up in my emotions.
It's obviously still a work in progress, might just be forever because I will always experience new emotions (Yay! *insert eye roll here*) and will find new scriptures to combat Satan's negative thoughts with. But now that I've got this little strategy in my pocket, I know I can process my emotions when I need to and combat those negative thoughts when I have them (which, honestly, is way too often!).
