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.
I believe John 11:35 is the one bible verse that resonates the most in me. It shows me my God is able to recognize and feel my pain.
#Jesus shed tears. He knew what was about to happen, but he still felt sadness over the fallen creation, and it affected him.
If we don't rehearse the promises that #Jesus gave us, we lose sight of them, we forget of them, and eventually we lose them.
If we instead rehearse our current situations, that'll continue to breed doubt in our minds. We wonder how we're supposed to ever get free from something.
But God's never been concerned with how. He's concerned with "who"!
He is looking for faith. Question is, do we trust him?
When I have a list to playback in the background, and press on a song that is not playing right now, and then on `Details`, the app doesn't open the desired video page but always the video page of the video that currently plays.
I don't have a github account. If anyone wants, you can open an issue; but check if that bug already is noted in an already open issue.
Now, stop thinking about how it affects your life only, and start thinking about how much it affects society at large scale. What's your conclusion?
If those platforms present to each of you a different reality, you'll lose track of reality.
How are you going to discern between fake news and true news - if everything in your feed is filtered to only contain things that keep you engaged?
Dear people who think, or even say, "I have nothing to hide";
The platforms and tools you are using to manage your everyday life manipulate you. They are designed to serve financial interests, not your well being. It's intended to have you become dependant. The more time you give up, the more valuable you are.
If you don't believe me, then ask yourself, who get's your attention? Who?
With #grace alone, we are safe from #condemnation, but we cannot experience true #intimacy.
When the one who offers grace also offers #truth (truth about who we are, truth about who he or she is, and truth about the world around us), and we respond with our true self, the real intimacy is possible.
Real intimacy always comes in the company of truth!
Healing is an ugly mess full of pitfalls, missteps, sinking, and swimming.
Like a game of shoots and ladders, you never know when the board might pull you back and send you down the ladder screaming at the top of your lungs.
Just when you think you've arrived at the finish, you draw a card that sends you back to start and just when it appears you've lost the game you jump ahead and come one step closer to the front of the line.
That is what #healing is.
When you have DONE something wrong, you can easily change that. You can acknowledge your error, accept that it happened, and develop strategies that help you to not do the bad deed again.
However, with shame it's not possible to change at all - because the bad is YOURSELF.
