verbalizing verbal/emotional abuse….recognizing it and doing something about it…mainly acknowledging it…
there is a significant difference in being upset or even disgusted with an event and being disgusted with an individual…it is important to discern this sometimes subtle circumstance and address it…there may be no need to request an apology or that “the right thing be done” but to say this is what I see is happening and it is not okay can be a huge revelation to some people…and the others around them that they abuse….
freedom is leadership which can mean walking or standing alone…
leadership is doing the right thing for the right reason, not just getting what we want done
and it is watching out for the dignity and freedoms of all….for one cannot be free without seeking freedom for all
Freedom is knowing you are saying the words the Lord would have you say. If you give your all to this principle you need to exercise faith in it and not fall into the temptation to continually second guess yourself. This is not the same as not reflecting on how you are doing and looking for ways to improve your communication. It means that you will be given “what you need” in those moments that matter after you have given your all to God by seeking his will in all you do and living by the “light and knowledge” that you have.
I believe it was Madame Curie who said you must be willing to fail if you are going to be successful at anything. I believe that this is a part of freedom. There has to be a place where a choice or decision is made or there is no freedom or success.
