    How do you break out of a Ti loop if you find yourself in a negative cycle?

    the answer to that, sis, would be distraction, what i call 'thought replacement therapy', and generally just snapping it. and finding something else to care about. getting out of self, essentially. tedious route, but ah well.

    imnottoopopular. why/what does christianity mean to you, that you consider to be one of your defining aspects?
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    Uhh, favorite book. Currently it's the Owner's Manual for the Brain; it's a mammoth work that's more like reference book since it's more than 900 pages long. Joyce Meyer's Beauty for Ashes is good too. My ENTP friend and I think she's an ENTJ.

    Uhh, I don't like philosophy, except my own, so I don't have a favorite philosopher.

    Hmm, I don't watch too many movies anymore, so my favorites are old like the Shawshank Redemption and the Last Samurai.

    My favorite subject would have to be psychology overall. My favorite psych courses were: thie history of psychology, the psychology of learning, and abnormal psychology.

    I can't. Ti is my life.

    I don't know too much about mustard plants, but they don't end up very big. One day a mustard seed came into the world, and after many, many years of growth it became a huge tree for the birds of the air to rest in (you might recognize this as a parable of Jesus).

    The tree represents Christianity. The birds of the air aren't good; they swallow up the word of God that is sown among people (making reference to another parable here). So, the seed (Jesus) that should've been a mustard plant has become a huge tree full of evil birds.

    Now, the message that Christianity is based on, is that the Light has come into the world to show us the way. He died for us so that not only would we not be tossed out like garbage when everything is said and done, but so that we could be made whole and right in our very lives here and now.

    The light shone on me, and knowing that I was evil, I thought I had to try to be good. More light shone and I figured out that I was incapable of being good even if I tried. I can get some behaviors straight, but the motives are never right. When I try to change my motives, they don't wanna change too much. So this brings up the subject of love.

    Love all starts with me accepting myself and believing that I'm actually lovable. Then I can receive love from God and others, and with that love, I'm enabled to love God and others. If I try to love without going through this process, I end up doing behaviors consistent with love, but for the wrong reasons.

    God loves me even though I do X, Y, and Z, and X, Y, and Z aren't any good. X, Y, and Z also happen to be connected to elements of my character that aren't good. If I try to get rid of X, Y, and Z, the best I can do is temporarily replace them with A, B, and C, but keep falling back into X, Y, and Z cause they work better. This is where God has to save me, and I have to trust in Him to do so. Such thinking is rather new to me, so I haven't made much progress with this.
