One of my favorite finds on self examination and improvement is the book
THE FOUR AGREEMENTS
by Don Miguel Ruiz
The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom https://g.co/kgs/UJ7Z1K
A friend of mine shared this self-help book with me a few years back. It was so fascinating to me! In the introduction he goes over how most people live with a judge and a victim in their heads constantly vying for attention and energy. The book focuses on learning how to take control of your life and choose happiness through committing to four new commitments:
1. choosing carefully the words we use
2. choosing not to be offended
3. choosing not to make assumptions
4.choosing to always do your best
He talks about how so many people live their lives in a type of hell allowing others to control so much of their happiness.
After reading this book and his specific examples of how we might not follow these agreements, my eyes were opened to ways I could find more peace and happiness in my life. I find the taglines of the agreements popping into my mind when I start to stress about things, as if God is prompting me on how to resolve the worry.
I have shared the concepts from this book on so many occasions (and the book itself) and know many of my friends and family have found them helpful in their own lives.
I think everyone should read this book! We all deserve to be happy and have peace!!
