” “I guess my voice doesn’t work very well anymore,” she replied.
“No one calls me since you children left home.” No weapon in the arsenal of a controlling person is as strong as the guilt message.
Still, his language echoes a wider point: that the war against terrorism can be fought, in part, with Christian faith…” I say Amen to Mike Pompeo’s previous statements.
Jesus Christ is the savior of the world and he is the only solution for our world.
But Pompeo’s specific brand of evangelical Christianity, with its insistence on seeing Muslim-Christian relations as an apocalyptic holy war, makes him an unnerving choice for such a senior foreign policy position.” Mike Pompeo is absolutely right that the Islamic Jihad being waged is absolutely a proxy war between Western Civilization which was founded on Christian values vs the Islamic world.
Islamic terrorists very much see the war in this way and we do a great disservice when we try and ignore this fact.
Here are six suggestions about dealing with these external messages: 1. Some people swallow guilt messages without seeing how controlling they are. The guilt sender is failing to openly admit her anger at you for what you are doing, probably because that would expose how she is trying to control you.
Sure, we need to be open to rebuke and feedback, because we need to know when we’re being self-centered. She focuses on you and your behavior, rather than on how she feels. Instead of expressing and owning these feelings, some parents try to steer the focus onto you and what you are doing.
Then you will be able to deal with the outside correctly, using love and limits. Take time to acknowledge how your mother feels by saying like: The main principle is this: When someone tries to make you feel guilty, empathize with the distress that she might be feeling. Remember, love and limits are the only clear boundaries. A woman with good boundaries would empathize with her mother and say, “It sounds like you are feeling lonely, Mom.” She would make sure that her mom hears that she knows the feeling beneath the guilt message.
Pompeo’s previous statements about the intersection between faith and politics.
Below are some excerpts from an article from Vox.com, written by Tara Isabella Burton, entitled “Mike Pompeo, Trump’s pick for secretary of state, talks about politics as a battle of good and evil”: “That Pompeo is an evangelical Christian is, on its face, not particularly notable; 25 percent of Americans are.
If you continue to blame your mother for “making” you feel guilty, then she has power over you. If you react negatively, you have lost your boundaries. As much as possible, bring truth and grace to the relationship with your mom.
And, you are saying that you will only feel good when she stops doing that. Proverbs says, “Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man without self-control.” If your mother has the power to make you react, then she is inside your walls, inside your boundaries. What a blessing to be a redemptive force for their lives, even in her later years!
