Re: Parenting challenges.

Arvana, Your insights and perspectives have been helpful. It makes sense that blaming at first can be a segway to owning our anger and processing it with God. It seems so hard not to blame initially and therefore often I would resist feeling it. Great reminder to go with what I'm feeling and let it ...

What should we focus on?

I wonder where our focus should be while on the Divine Love path? Throughout my journey on this path I have recognized that at times I am super focused on trying to identify negative emotions. I have spent a lot of time focusing on my past to process negative emotions. I'm concerned that I am too fo...

Re: Parenting challenges.

Justin, You described a lot of what others have been trying to get me to accept and apply. It seems like there is a brick wall that I and others are trying to break down for me to fully believe, understand, and apply these concepts. The reality is that I'm really afraid to have faith this is true an...

Re: Parenting challenges.

Marion, What I've noticed when processing emotions around my children is that when processing anger I need to go somewhere where they are not. It is scary for my children to hear me scream or watch me get into my anger. I'm not sure if they feel me projecting it at them because I'm not truly owning ...

Re: Parenting challenges.

Great idea...I'll give it a go. My relationship with God is pretty much non existent and so I don't often try to ask for support to feel about these issues. The more I feel and reflect on these issues of mine I am beginning to see how the issues from my childhood are playing out in various facets in...

Re: Parenting challenges.

Niky and Elvira, I’m so afraid to not understand what it is I’m supposed to do. When I was young I used to be criticized and shamed for not understanding how to do something or for making mistakes. I felt and believed I was stupid and this belief ran my life in many ways. In order to not feel stupid...

Re: Parenting challenges.

Thanks Elvira. Mary's post makes a lot of sense and your explanation as well. I'm curious as to how you self punish or how this can manifest as it can be deceiving. For instance, my initial reaction is to think that I'm not really self punishing. I want to think that pushing myself to grow in love, ...

Re: Self-deceiving emotions

Pierre, Thanks for the feedback. I can relate to some of which you described. For instance, feeling like the emotions come in waves and reacting like a child when I get into some deeper emotions. I've prayed during these times, though know I can be more consistent with asking for help to be humble. ...

Re: Parenting

Niky,

I've had several parenting questions and posts so I'd be in favor of a parenting topic.
