> Privacy is the #freedom to be imperfect
It is #acceptance of who we are and everything that we have been.
We need one another to thrive, we need to receive from another. We are not meant to live in isolated capsules, each and everyone just for themself! Yes, this is why I feel like I am going insane - perhaps even not only "feel" - because I am shut out, cut off from nutrients; from human connection sharing abundant life.
"If you feel not okay, there must be sin in your life."
This idea is a lie. It is not sin, but it is isolation, and loneliness that is creating the problems. This mindset to dig into the deepest corners of our beings, to find everything flawed - it depletes me. And my father just as well. My mother probably either, also.
I'm trying to cope with numerous sudden deaths again. It's tough. Whoever wants is welcome to pray for me. If there's a God, he should please take care of me.
The partner once promised to give himself to her, but he now suddenly vanished. (Or she once promised [..], but she now suddenly vanished)
The promise of marriage is the most intimate promise that a human would give. If this is nulled/cancelled unexpectedly, and you can not prepare, it will break your trust at a deep level; stunt your very ability to trust. Such a betrayal impacts the capacity to open up to an other then, and relate and bond.
And the need for intimacy is still there. Where should a loyal yet wrongfully betrayed person go now to have intimacy also on the sexual level?
In my personal experiences, worldview, and understanding, at least.
Divorce, I think, is "actively (or intentionally) rescinding a given promise". A promise is supposed to hold, and to keep up. If you are a loyal partner, and they suddenly go void on you, you are in trouble because "It is not good for man to be alone".
When ones tax return has been filed life is at #order. When they’re audited then it's in #chaos. Most people would rather be mugged than audited.
Before the Twin Towers fell — that was order. Chaos manifested itself afterward. Everyone felt it. The very air became uncertain. What exactly was it that fell? Wrong question. What exactly remained standing? That was the issue at hand.
You’re in #order when you have a loyal friend, a trustworthy ally. When the same person betrays you, sells you out, you move from the daytime world of clarity and light to the dark underworld of #chaos, confusion and despair.
This is the same move you make, the same place you visit, when your company starts to fail and your job is placed in doubt.
#Brokenness alters us emotionally. It does not just make us think differently, it makes us also feel differently. It alters our relationships. Brokenness tends to affect our capacity for intimacy. It also affects how others relate or respond to us. Brokenness makes us act differently.
So, basically it affects just about everything that we do and who we are.
A lot of paintings in the church depict your #Jesus as a #superhuman. But this is dangerous. Jesus was no superhuman. He was not #Superman. He was a very normal, ordinary #human, just like you and me.
