We think about a lot of stuff.
Most of our thinking is worrying, denying or negative.
We don’t believe in ourselves.  
We don’t believe that the Lord is going to take care of us.
How do we change. 

Start by thinking about the Lord. 
Learn to meditate on His law.
His law says that we are to love Him with all of our heart and mind.
And to love our neighbor as ourselves.  
Loving others is hard to do.  

We make excuses for ourselves.
We forgive ourselves for unforgivable things.We deny forgiveness to others over minutiae.
Mostly for things we quickly forgive self.  
Also, how can I love others if I don’t love myself?

Then, how do I change?
Begin with the Lord in prayer.
Follow His lead for repentance.
Follow His lead for healing.
Love yourself, more and more day by day.

Then how do I change?
Think about the Lord-His goodness, His majesty, His greatness.
Count your blessings.  Name them, write them and thank the Lord for them.
Praise the Lord, praise His name, praise his greatness.  
Understand how much He loves you.  

Then how do I change?
Daily in prayer, seek His guidance.
What do I do today Lord?
Who must I forgive?  
Holy Spirit, help me walk my talk, help me change.

Then how do I change?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart.
Believe in Him, His presence and concern for you everyday.  
Repent, praise and love.  Do that again each day.
The Holy Spirit will change your ways.
