If you hate the way you keep responding to someone or some situation with the same bad response over and over, stop and examine the root of that response. My guess is that the basis of it is fear. Fear seems to be the basis of most bad things in our lives. I challenge you to stop and examine and just see if fear lives there.
Satan is behind that fear. He wants us to fear. Because if we allow fear in our lives and imagine that fear long enough in our minds, we'll act on it. But God says that He hasn't given us the spirit of fear; but of love, power and a sound mind.
Draw a line in the sand with fear. No more! Don't allow it to have free reign in your mind. Keep examining your responses and stop fear from controlling you. Ask God for truth which will set you free. Do that over and over until it becomes a way of life--and you can stop the cycle of bad responses. You'll be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
I know this sounds simplistic, but I promise....it's stopped fear dead in its tracks in my own life.
Live in the love...the power...the sound mind. Live in truth.
