after an amazing sermon this morning @mountainparkcommunity i was reluctant to post this horrifying yet enlighteing read. this article took me back to a place of previous reading and absolute spiritual enlightenment. i receieved a book as a gift one time from @stephaniethompson in high scool. in hinds sight, it was the absolute perfect time to read this book: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=safe+people ; i was on the brink of cultivating an entire world of new relationships upon my first year of undergrad. the dating scene, the change in family relationship dynamics, the new friends etc. this book taught me a lot about myself as well as the others i was about to encounter. was i a safe person for others to cultivate a relationship? was i going to be one to blame or thank for their “negative/postive energy”?! i made a decision to back then to let christ carry my worry, burden or other various things i would be prone to contribute to an anxious way of living so that i would be able to walk freely in my relationships.
today this modern day article of “14 habits of highly miserable people”, actually RE-INSPIRED me to make sure i’m making the best of every moment and to heed warning signs of other people that are potentially toxic and how much to/not to help them, draw boundaries and pray for that white light of protection to surround me at every angle.
happy sabbath & blessings to you ❤
