Emotions. There are something all women deal with and find hard to control at times. Even myself can have issues with controlling my emotions. Sometimes I bottle emotions up or sometimes I just explode, which never ends well. But luckily there is help, and thanks to Lysa Terkeurst and her book Unglued, there is help on the journey with dealing with emotions and finding a healthy way to live with them.
Emotions can get the best of us and I’ll be the first one to admit that I can have issues with my emotions. What I love about this book, is that Lysa is like every other woman out there struggling to deal with her raw emotions. She’s not perfect by no means or has anything completely figured out, but it’s like she says, this book and process is all about making progress, it’s not about becoming the perfect person.
She talks about there’s two different types of unglued. There are the exploder’s and there are the stuffers. They are pretty much self-explanatory by the names that she gave them, whereas the stuffer stuff everything down and avoid their emotions and the exploders just explode. Now to find out which one you are there is a self-evaluation at the back of the book which will let you know which type of unglued you are.
The thing that I found that was most approachable about this book is the fact that she’s not perfect nor does she claim to be. She is just another human like the rest of us dealing with our God-given emotions and trying to find some grace in her day-to-day life. Emotions are something were all that have to deal with, but there is hope we can find a path, through this book, to a grace filled life and a life of calm were emotions don’t control us. That is, if you allow the process to work and use the helpful tips that she provides in this book.
