Broken People are not POSSESSED
You are not possessed, just acting out.
I am broken, who hasn't been broken? Many of us are from time to time!
Whether we are beat up as a child, told we are unworthy, or just attention seekers, our behavior can be "less than ideal".
I relate to broken people well, as my struggles can cause anxiety, and stress!!
When does it end?
Awareness of knowing that I only had control over what I can say, and what I do.
There is no excuse to tell someone, "I was angry, so I said it".. no, you have choices on how you respond. How do I know that?? Because I have lashed out at others in anger, and in the end, it didn't change the situation, however, because of my reaction, MADE IT WORSE.
How do I know I can control anger? Once I learned not to respond, I realized I was in control all along. That's enlightenment. No Straight Jacket Required!
The first learning for me happened this summer. Sometimes, no action is needed. However, that is exactly what I did. And it worked out in the end.
And so it began. "Non responding", was also a coping skill.
We cannot force someone to love us. Nor force them to do what we hoped they would do.
I don't feel as broken as I did before. Yet, I still struggle. I still think my interfering could change the course of events. And yes, sometimes I have to talk it through, if even for a moment, so I realize that doing nothing is an always an option. Even typing this blog is an option.
I am just tired of the "I can't control it" YOU ARE NOT POSSESSED! BROKEN PEOPLE CAN STILL CHANGE HOW WE RESPOND TO SITUATIONS!
