Don’t Allow Enablers

“Most people will tell you what you want to hear not because they’re bad people, but because they want to recruit you in their circle of approval and self-wallowing.”

Ouch. That’s me.

If someone eggs you on in your anger or validates your self-pity: please extract yourself out of there. Find someone else. I’ve made this mistake too many times, when I should’ve heard from a friend who rebuked me towards grace and forgiveness and the hard truth about myself. No one should ever purposefully move you into more bitterness nor affirm your prideful isolation. I’ve seen guys who were puffed up this way over time and they’re hardly tolerable now.

Most people will tell you what you want to hear not because they’re bad people, but because they want to recruit you in their circle of approval and self-wallowing. This means they will tickle your ego: and you’ll be tempted to go back there.

They need grace too, so be courteous and nod along and love them just as much as the next guy. But please don’t fall for yes-men. Find…

This will be another personal and random blog post so don’t expect this to be something juicy like my previous posts… if they really were that juicy.

It’s been weeks since I last posted in my blog again. 😦 Sorry if you’re waiting for my blog posts and have nothing to post here. I have a lot of reasons, but.. Reasons are reasons. They show that if you give lots of reasons, it’s because you really don’t want to post. Okay, at times I’m so lazy to post here. But most of the time, I don’t know how to fix my thoughts and connect all of them. That’s how my posts are usually done, though (from how I see it). I can think logically about something, but I can’t explain my thoughts. I can’t turn my thoughts into words very well, and that’s what I hope to develop for myself through class reports and recitations (but I usually get really nervous).

I apologize if I won’t be able to post here for  awhile since I’ll surely be busy for the next few weeks. But I’ll find time to post here some day soon. 😀 Anyway, I want to share with you what’s happening with me recently.

It’s cool that I’m happily seeking God in my life again! I’m starting with little steps towards God. I’m going back to the basics again though it’s hard for me to read the Bible itself (so I usually read a book that has something to do with Christianity and God to read the Bible passages cited within its pages). I’m currently reading Susana Foth Aughtmon’s book, “All I Need Is Jesus And A Good Pair of Jeans” (three more chapters to go) and Aviad Kleinberg’s “7 Deadly Sins”. The latter is so deep with regards to the thoughts of the author. It’s a good-read for me so far (I’m still in Chapter 3).

I think that’s it for this blog post. God bless! Thank you for reading my random blog post + mini recent-stories.
