Last week, the subject of number five in the blog series The Truth Is Not Delicate was teaching my daughters that it’s not ok to cry, is not ok. This week I have decided to take a break from the list to let you know what my God revealed to me. You can expect me to get back on track with blog number six next week.
Last week, number three in the series was giving up or giving in is not the same as compromise. This week number four is: always doing what your spouse wants when it isn’t want you want without speaking up is not ok. In one word this statement can be described as “appeasement,” which is defined as the state of being appeased; the policy of giving in to a demand in order to preserve the peace; to dispel anger or hatred.
Something that has become very important to me is my level of awareness. Lately, the area I would like to have more awareness revolves around how my past has affected me and as a consequence has influenced those around me.
Recently I heard a beautiful song about being kind to yourself. We give away what we have to give. If we have love for ourselves, we have love to give away. If we are kind to ourselves, we have kindness to give away.
