If you are talking about "temptations" then it makes no difference what age you are they still come. I am 62 years old, and I am still tempted with the same things as I had when I was your age. This will never go away until we receive a new supernatural body that is not riddled with sin.Self-control is a big problem for most kids in my age group until their twenties, in my opinion. As generally older people, what are your experiences on this matter (couldn't find another way to say this lol).
Good post, but why the eyecon?How to control oneself?
Fear causes one to lose control. Most of our fears are unfounded , imagined, or exaggerated.
As soon as I feel any tension in my mind and/or body, I am responding to some fear.
Once aware of this, I then decide if it is real or not.
Most real ones are immediate, like about to be hit by a car. If my fear is not an immediate type, then I remind myself that it may not be necessarily so.
To overcome my imagined fears, that persist, I must acknowledge my fear and act in faith to face my fears with an open mind to its truth. In this way, I regain control of my reality.
