Interesting quote shared by the founder of N2Life, Julie Smith…
“In the course of developing emotional responsibility, most of us experience three stages: 1) “emotional slavery” – believing ourselves responsible for the feelings of others, (2) “the obnoxious stage” – in which we refuse to admit to caring what anyone else feels or needs, and (3) “emotional liberation” – in which we accept full responsibility for our own feelings but not the feelings of others, while being aware that we can never meet our own needs at the expense of others.”
Marshall Rosenberg, NonViolent Communication, A language of life.
Slavery in one of it’s many forms, but not beyond what we can be set free from through Jesus.
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free…” – Jesus
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
