I think the better someone has learnt to embrace their own #feelings, however intense, interrupting or unpleasant they are, the more #trustworthy this someone will be perceived by the people surrounding them.
That makes sense to me, of course;
with less surpressed emotions, less overwhelming surprises will manifest in abusive behaviour towards the environment.
> Privacy is the #freedom to be imperfect
It is #acceptance of who we are and everything that we have been.
Perhaps you have experienced this kind of #love and #grace with someone.
You can be exactly who you are.
You do not need to #hide your #thoughts or #feelings;
you do not need to #perform;
you do not need to do anything to be loved.
Someone knows the #real you, and loves you anyway.
It is the kind of relationship humanity had with God in the Garden of Eden.
In short, they were #secure; [...]
People with power do not always feel powerful. In fact, the more #powerless we feel, and the weaker and needier we feel, the more dangerous we are.
Hey, I got a #question
When you are isolated and you feel lonely, do you think it is more important to
- embrace the loneliness, or to
- work on overcoming it?
I'm feeling very lonely lately.
I'm not able to talk with certain people anymore, that I was able to share my heart with in the past
Being in this state of disconnection is intense for me, difficult to manage.
What would help me were to know when I'd be able to reconnect with said people again.
But I don't know about that
This probably comes super random for you, but do you know someone on your instance that could help me out with something?
I am wondering if, and how I can convert raw bible verses (that I collected) into the bibleproject format called #sword
My goal is to process an unpublished bible translation, with the program #BibleTime
Hope you are doing fine with the current international health situation!
People advocating for a different side in an ideological argument don't always have different opinions than we do.
They just don't necessarily see the same #facts
There is an infinite number of available facts to use in an argument.
The filter we subconsciously use to select from them preferentially presents us those facts that are most relevant to our personal #worldview
The same goes for the other side
> I think that any state, institution, or other group of people using #surveillance wants essentially to make sure that their power will not be endangered by the people.
They want to stay in power. So they need to know what people are doing, with whom they have relationships. So that they can, if necessary, block and disconnect specifically those people they think are part of the political antagonism.
