Kryptonite

There is only one substance in the universe that can bring Superman to his knees and it is that green, glowing substance called “kryptonite.”

What is your kryptonite? I have several:

1 – Sweets. Even when I was anorexic, I ate my sweets, especially chocolate.

2 – Good manners. My daughter used to let her friends know that, if they said thank you, I would give them just about anything! I fed them often.

3 – Dissing me or hurting my feelings. If someone disses me or hurts my feelings it is a blow to my solar plexus. I become a small, hurt child and want to either hide or strike back. It happened to me tonight and I know, with everything in me, that the person who did it didn’t mean to hurt me. Still, I, who do not cry, almost broke down like a blubbering infant.

4 – A lack of time spent with God. When I don’t communicate with God through studying His Word and prayer, I am brought to my knees in weakness. I become less and less like Him and more and more depressed and anxious.
