2. Fear. They would rather not contemplate how life can be so suddenly derailed. They cannot bear to think about suffering and don't want to face up to such realities
3. Because they love you they find it too hard to contemplate your suffering so shy away from it

My Wife’s Salary Was a Mystery Until I discovered How Much She’s Truly Worth

In 2016 she told me her salary was GHC950. And then two years later, when she got promoted, I asked about her salary and she said, “Oh these people, don’t mind them.
They added only Ghc350 to my old salary. Because of her meagre salary, I’ve taken up so many responsibilities in the house without complaint. I pay for utilities and pay for food. I pay the fees of our two kids, clothe them, and take care of their medical bills.
When my wife sends me a grocery list, she adds sanitary pads. She buys dresses and clothes, comes to show them to me, and asks me to pay for them. She started talking about a car when our second child came in. Things weren’t good on my side so I asked her to give me some time.

"When I didn't score well in CAT after giving it my all, I was devastated. Frustrated, I decided to take a hiatus & travel. But my parents wanted me to get a degree & weren't okay with me just taking off.
So at 20, 1 used up my savings from internships & left. I travelled a lot, but upon reaching Ahmedabad, I decided to stay. I got a part time job at a restaurant to sustain myself. I knew my parents wouldn't take it well. And I was right-they were furious.
They wanted me to get a degree. So, I enrolled myself in a local MBA college. I was studying & working; honestly, I was learning more as a cashier than as an #MBA student. I even wanted to start my own business, but I didn't have the funds.

We are designed by God to succeed in company and NOT in isolation because every human being is deficient by design!

This is not an insult or a criticism, but a realistic and honest admission that God did not put all the ingredients for success in any one man.
God made us this way so no man would wrongly arrogate to himself the attribute of omnipotence.
You will ALWAYS need the contributions of other people to achieve success in life! (Eph 4:16, Gen 2:18)
One of the easiest ways to limit a person's potential for success in life is to isolate them. Once you’re isolated, I don’t care how strong you think you are – you become vulnerable, because
your strength is in your relationships.

I believe the greatest form of self-awareness is submission. When you understand your human frailties & predilections and you look to God for help, even as you take personal responsibility for your character. 🧵
I have seen too many people do the very things they preached against. So self-awareness is important, as well as awareness of others.
Generally, a lack of self-awareness means you will be completely oblivious to what everyone else around you can see. You exist in a self-righteous bubble, do things without asking for opinions and have a single way of doing things.

Upbringing is important and greatly influences how individuals manage relationships. 🧵
So when people check out the families of those they intend to marry or do business with, I understand. Ideology, lifestyle and values can be shaped by background and family (or the lack thereof).
The thing about learning about a person's family or upbringing is, it helps breed understanding. It should never be done in judgment. We all have our baggage. So, no one is superior.

When people say communication is everything in relationships, what they fail to emphasise is that there is no substantive communication without speaking the same language. 🧵 Image
The parties will fail to grasp what the other really means and will be confused by seemingly outsized reactions to little things.
While interpreters can help - counsellors - they cannot sustain day-to-day dialogue.

You need the right relationships in your life to be all that God wants you to be, to have all that God wants you to have, and to get to where God wants you to get to.
JOSEPH could interpret dreams and give wise counsel that would exempt Egypt from a global catastrophe and position the nation as the preeminent world power of the day, but how in the world would Pharaoh have heard of Joseph if the butler had not recommended him?
DAVID’S ability to recover all that he lost in Ziklag was tied to meeting a half-dead Egyptian slave who had been abandoned by his masters to die.

SAUL’S destiny-altering encounter with Samuel was facilitated by his servant who told him about the prophet.

Understanding #karmic knots in #relationships

It’s not easy to understand what are karmic relationships which bound us from many years or why we are just stick to them from our childhoods days with many of people we interact, share, love and responds them in a unique way.
The best way to understand Karmic bondage’s is to just keep silent and understand them and ask millions of questions to your soul itself.In Layman language, A karmic relationship is a deep rooted karmic actions based romantic bond that is formed with someone whom
you feel connected always and somehow you thinks you are made for and most probably it might be belong from your soul group categories in order to repent, heal past life lessons and pain a soul is going through from many years.

Going thru intense pain flare & having this beautiful flashback. Working in bed w/ #disabled ex. She's reading draft of "Common Cyborg." She's like "Babe, you know its not a thing yet. Like, there arent actually cyborgs." I'm looking at her. "Babe. We are cyborgs." She's like ...
"I know. But they don't know." I'm like "Yeah, that's why we have to tell them."

For a second I thought she meant she didnt believe me. But now I think she did believe me. She just knew it was gonna be hard to tell them that we're real. We exist. #Cyborg #Relationships #CripLit
I forgot to take the pill. The #opioid but I just took it so I'll get relief soon. But there's something here. I don't know what it is #brainfog I'm thinking ...

Recently my #podcast co-host and I broke ties mid-campaign with a #sponsor - the first time in 400+ episodes that we've done this. I'm sharing that story in this thread about #podcastads, with two goals in mind.
The first goal is to help #podcast listeners think more critically about the ads they're hearing, particularly in sensitive and high-stakes topic areas like #health and #wellness, #finance and #money, and #relationships .
My other goal is to empower #podcasters to advocate for themselves (and ultimately their listeners) in these sponsor-content creator relationships.

#Ingratitude gives birth to different problems.

You must ever be #grateful to the Lord and your spouse for the gift of #marriage. Learn to be appreciative of whatever your spouse does or gives, no matter how little. /1

#Xmas #Christmas #MotivationalQuotes #family
Sometimes, as a woman, your husband does not have enough means to take care of everything in the home. Learn to still be grateful for the little.

Be understanding. Life is truly in phases. What you can't afford today, will surely come tomorrow.

I know that there are some men
...that shirk their #responsibilities. Such #men are mere boys. But in a situation where the case is genuine, please bear with your #husband. Assist him where possible.

The #God of heaven is your Rewarder.

When your husband tells you that he's facing a #financial challenge,

Since I was a #graduate student, I’ve been struck by the variability in advisor-student relationships. While some are amazing, fruitful, and inspiring to watch, others are a downward spiral of awfulness and pain. 1/10 #gradschool #AcademicTwitter
Despite this, not only are #professors not taught how to be good mentors, but there is almost never any penalty or remediation for those with awful track records. 2/10 #mentorship
As a #stress and #socialsupport researcher, it was evident to me that advisor-advisee #relationships were likely having an effect on student stress, well-being and health. Surprisingly, no one had ever looked at this before. 3/10

Thread from April 2, 2020.

"Science shows that early exposure to circumstances that produce persistent #fear and chronic #anxiety can have lifelong consequences by disrupting the developing architecture of the brain."

[National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, 2010]
"While some of these experiences are one-time events and others may reoccur or persist over time, all of them have the potential to affect how children learn, solve problems, and relate to others."
This is a topic worthy of discussion. Consider WEF's rapidly accelerating consolidation of global power. In Jan 2019 WEF exploited the climate crisis by deliberately inciting #fear - in tandem with partners & media. Today it exploits the COVID-19 pandemic.

#RHOBHReunion got me in a binge. I had never seen Real Housewives (anything, much seen #RHOBH before.

So, after my Season 10 today (and currently on That's Amore) - let me just say that @DENISE_RICHARDS coming back to the table was a huge deal.

I know that *Denise leaving* was a thematic element in the show but may I offer a legitimate empathetic reason? It may not apply to her but - in my life - I will tell you why;

#Trauma of the #PTSD unresolved kind that drove me to #Codependent Recovery (#CodieRecovery👈).

Someone (sorry I cannot remember who) characterized her as being 'Fight or Flight' and they're right. I'm gonna also go out on a limb and characterize her potential for a Freeze.

I was a Freezer.

Most beautiful video you will see on the Internet today❤
What you teach your kids is what they will portray or show! If you teach them love, they will show love, if you teach them how to respect others, they will respect others!
They are watching all you do and following your footsteps, your little siblings are watching how you insult your neighbors, they are learning from you!

Looking forward to delivering this one-day workshop/training to a national counselling service today! #counselling #therapy #training Image
When we say 'working with', what we are actually doing and being in, is a Relationship. So both my idenity and the identity of the other person are present and in relationship with one another #relationships #intersectionality #diversity Image
In #counselling it's important we understand, explore and reflect on our own and our client's intersectionality, and the relationship dynamic created between the two. Great discussion in our morning session addressing those systems of oppression and our #intersectionality. Image

Personal "data #ownership" - "pure" or otherwise - is a #misnomer, and #rights frameworks clearly struggle when predicated upon notions of #DataSubjects - and when the #value (to others) of information about us lies largely in its #relationships (to others').
I'd unpack @martintisne's first point a bit further; the impacts we experience are of course based in the way we are #discriminated (for or against) by those who treat us as members of a #class by virtue of shared #characteristics on which they pass #judgement - but is that...
..."more" about "other people's #data" or more about the #judgements, and who's making 'em?

While I share concerns around 'purely' individual(istic) rights - "every woman for herself"! - the perils of #GroupRights lie in the degree to which they can undermine what must remain...

Quick answer: #rights. Did the work on this well over a decade ago, before #GDPR was even a twinkle in Jan's eye.

Longer answer: '#ownership' (just like rights) doesn't get you shit if it ain't #enforceable / #enforced *in practice*. Hence all the current effort going into...
...#redress - e.g. Lloyd vs @Google, and the tsunami behind that.

But a new FIELD of law (e.g. #InformationalPrivity*) may be required, 'cos it turns out treating #people and their #relationships as #property is as bad as treating 'em as #subjects...

...not #sovereigns of their data.

(Not forgetting that - on the evidence of human behaviour, power imbalances, etc. - many, if not most, wouldn't relish or even know what to do with such sovereign #responsibility, much less be able to wield it outside a #rights framework.)
