Crying over spilled milk won't fix it!
Good consequences, bad consequences, neutral. Everything we do in life has consequences.
Sometimes we know what the consequences for our actions will be, and sometimes we don 't.
But, just in case you have been living under a rock or have never seen a drama movie, things are always better if you face your consequences head on and immediately. Trying to hide from your consequences inevitably makes them grow into an unmanageable mess.
Like in "Emma." Even though Emma knows that her attempts at matchmaker will cause trouble, she continues to try to set people up. She doesn't accept that she should stop trying to match people up, even though it hurts them, and at the end of the movie . . . well, you should just watch it.
Like in Veggie Tale's "Larry Boy and the Fib from Outerspace." Junior tells a little fib and then he feels like he has to keep telling lies to get out of trouble. All of a sudden his "little fib" is a big, monstrous lie!
Or like in the current season of "Once Upon a Time." Captain Hook is keeping secrets from Emma (with a little help from Rumpelstiltskin). The more lies he tells, the worse he knows it will be with Emma. Unfortunately, he just can't bring himself to tell her. Unless he did this last Sunday, in which case I haven't seen the episode yet. Sorry! :) No one tell me what happens!
So, face your consequences head on and right now! My last article talked about getting help for a pornography and sexual addiction. If you are in this boat and you need to tell your spouse (or parents) about your addiction, start the process now. I will talk about this in more detail later, but go to a therapist or church leader and talk to them about the best way to tell your spouse. The longer you wait and the deeper you get into your addiction, the worst it will be.
Our consequences are there to help us. Lots of consequences are there to help us get back to a point of health, some are there to help us remember something, and many times it just is what it is. Don't be afraid of them. The longer you ignore them, the worse they will get.
