Peer pressure is at an all time high these days. Though I don’t have a study to prove it, my common sense tells me so.
Turn the TV on and you’ll see sex everywhere. Skinny chicks are at the forefront of every commercial. If they’re not skinny, then it’s probably a commercial telling you how to lose weight.
The world strives for perfection. We’re supposed to do the same, right?
There is a new diet peering around every corner. “Drink this and lose that.” “Take this pill and you’re life will change forever.” “Eat bread and you may die.” (Okay, I might have slightly exaggerated on that last one, but you get the point.)
We’re missing the key ingredient to believing the truth: being in line with the One whom created us.
Before I write any further, let me say this: I’m writing this to myself first and foremost, because I need to be reminded just like you.
I may have lost 145 lbs., but my struggles are still very real and there are still moments I find myself in bondage. I’m working my way out of one of those times as we speak.
I’m guest posting over at River of Thoughts today.
