Intestinal fortitude. My hubby would call it pushiness.
Perhaps you can relate.
Question: is one reason God makes some folks pushy/passionate because they need it to surive?
A particular family system may indeed not have been a safe place for children.
Responsible person? the devil. Pretty much.
Not that the people don’t have any responsibility, but that is between them and God.
God make me remember where i come from
and respect the things that seem pushy in me and my world.
words to remember*:
“All behavior is motivated.” Byron Koehler
“Hurt people hurt people” Alger Marsh
*not the original author, but the person who taught me about it.
im pretty sure those phrases are just commonplace.
lmk if you know otherwise.
One of the things that God is doing in me through this trial is to soften my heart.
When my kids are acting up, I am softer with them. Not that they get away with more,
but my attitude is more tender and kind with them when they are naughty.
With a rude customer service rep on the phone, I am quicker to think of what their day or life has been like.
All behavior is motivated and hurt people hurt people, right?
God thank you for replacing my busy entitled irritated heart with a mindful grateful patient one.
