Self-Soothing as a Lifestyle

“A lot of times I feel like it’s better for me to be happy and in a good mood than for me to be healthy, but then I feel guilty, so then it’s this endless cycle of feeling bad and . . . managing my mood and my temper with all the wrong things. . . . I need Jesus every day all throughout the day. . . . Not only has he covered all of the sin, but he cares enough about me not to just let me continue.”
