I've been reading Comparison Trap by Sandra Stanley, and at the beginning of today's devotion, I read, " What were your parents like when you were growing up? How do you think that may have affected you?" Without actually thinking I got visual flashbacks of my parents having argumentive frustrations and differences of opinions with each other. Seeing my father with all his reason and logic trying really hard in his own way to convey to my mother and then watching my mother angry and upset in disagreement.
Sometimes we are faced with a truth that we never understood or could even see until we got curious. In my split second of curiosity from those questions I came to terms with myself understanding that the real nature of why I argue and challenge with my own spouse is from the impression of seeing my parents doing the same. I saw enough to keep it and hold onto it as a child. Am I blaming or fault finding? Absolutely not, but what I am doing is facing myself. It is all apart of my journey to discover who I am. To do this, I must shine a light on the favorable and the unfavorable.
I am merely learning discernment of what is mine and not mine. In this case, we have the choice to let go of what is not of our highest good. Today I speak a truth that I am aware of, now I must surrender it to God because I can't let go of it on my own without higher help.
I am grateful for this moment in time. I am thankful for those two questions that piqued a curiosity which then shined a flashlight on a solution of hope and the will to break a pattern.
We all have impressions its how we choose to hold on or let go that becomes us. Search, find, discover all with compassion and love for we are deserving. 🧜🏿♀️
