Self-control is our ability to subdue our impulses, emotions, and behaviors in order to achieve longer-term goals. To have self-control over negative thoughts, impulses, emotions, and behaviors is a virtue. However, what happens when one loses control of himself, and what may he do?
What Happens When Man Loses Control Of Himself?
When a man loses control of himself, all hell breaks loose. A man's uncontrolled negative thoughts, impulses, emotions, and behavior, will inevitably control him. A lack of self-control can become so overwhelming that one may lash out at any and everyone in his path. What's a man to do when he realizes that he has lost control of himself?
What may one do when he realizes that he has lost control?
If you believe that you have lost self-control, seek help. Talk to a family member, counselor, Pastor, or, and if need be, a Doctor. More important, Pray. Don't go it alone when help is available. The Holy Bible says, "Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counselors they are established (Proverbs 15:22). You can regain self-control. Trust God. Pray and meditate on His Word. Believe that "No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13). For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7). You can begin to bring your thoughts and actions in line with God's plan for your life one Faith step at a time.
