Becoming Unglued Isn’t All Bad {A Review}

This year one of the things I knew MUST be tackled in my life is my overactive emotions. Emotions that have “ruled” me quite a bit in my life. Emotions that made me come unglued. Whether it was becoming angry and shouting unkind, unloving words, or becoming bitter and stuffing the angry words and thoughts until later they would be hurled out like darts. I knew these things had to change, and I still do. I’ve spent the year striving to become more controlled with my emotions, and while I do see progress, I’m not where I want to be yet. So I plan on keeping at it.

Throughout my journey of learning to keep myself from becoming unglued, I have been blessed to find a couple books through Gospel for Asia and Booksneeze to review and help me on my journey. Earlier this year I shared with you, “Touching Godliness” by K.P. Yohanan and “Runaway Emotions” by Jeff Schreve. Both of these books were truly wonderful and pushed me further down the road to learning to tame these emotions that God gave me, although I’m not sure why to the extent I have them sometimes.

The latest book on my journey to taming my unglued emotions, is “Unglued” by Lysa TerKeurst. This book is amazing. Lysa writes from such a real point of view, she puts herself out in the open with situations she has dealt with and how she has responded and become unglued herself.

What I have been dealing with my whole life is that my emotions tend to differ based on who I’m dealing with. As a mother I tend to explode my emotions, and in my marriage I go the other direction and stuff until I can’t take it anymore. Lysa beautifully breaks down both of these tendencies and offers insight into the how, whys and what you do about it. All along the way you’ll be sure to find scripture to teach and encourage you.

Lysa also tackles tough topics such as how to respond when someone comes a bit unglued on you, or how to respond when your son’s 8th grade picture is on his graduation invitations.

She ends the book with a chapter titled, “It Isn’t All Bad” and she brings it all together to show us that though our unglued emotions aren’t right and we do need to learn to handle things better, there is good to be found in the unglued moments.

If you’re desiring to be able to handle your emotions, respond better to difficult situations and conversations, then I highly recommend you grab a copy of Lysa’s book, “Unglued“.
