It’s not OK to be me.
It’s not OK to be weak.
God doesn’t want to hear from me.
My friends don’t want to hear from me.
If I try I will fail.
No-one else struggles like this.
God can’t use me. Definitely not right now.
Having needs makes me pathetic.
Naming my desires is too dangerous.
I must have what she has.
I should be where he is.
I know what they’re thinking.
They should know what I’m thinking.
I can do it alone.
I can’t do it at all.
The Bible is a burden.
Prayer is a chore.
Church is a test.
I can control my world (and it will make me happy).
I can control your world (it’s for your own good!)
God doesn’t really love me. Only ‘church me.’
The real me is unacceptable.
It’s wrong to have questions or doubts.
I need the love of X to make me complete.
The disapproval of Y destroys me.
Failure is final.
I am my struggles and my sin.
God doesn’t care what I do.
God only cares about what I do.
My past can’t be redeemed.
My present can’t be transformed.
My future can’t be better.
