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.
In the series called The Truth Is Not Delicate I describe a list of unhealthy thoughts and/or behaviors about what I may have taught my daughters as they grew up in a home with a young mom (me) involved in an abusive marriage and who was just discovering that she was sexually abused as a child.
While the term “loneliness” describes a state of being alone or in solitude, loneliness can also be a state of mind. For instance, people who feel empty, alone, and unwanted can become depressed and have difficulty forming relationships with others as a result.
Have you ever decided to de-clutter your home and something triggered you? While giving away what doesn’t bring me joy anymore, I had an opportunity to dig deep into my emotions. They can take you places you didn’t think you needed to go.
