Why Do Some Burn The Bridge To Relationships That Should Be Cherished?

“Are You playing me?” Is slang for a question that we consciously or subconsciously ask in relationships. Especially where there is a history of mistrust.

I want to say it another way so there is no misunderstanding. Why do some people subconsciously sabotage relationships that they depend on always being there for them? Yes, I’m primarily talking about the manipulators that easily move about in our inner circles of relationships.

The “pouters” that manipulate their loved ones in order to have things go their way. We parents, and grandparents would like to think this habit goes away in the teenage years of our children or grandchildren. And I want to include spouses here as well.

The habit of being a manipulator does not go away easily, though. In fact, it deepens, like a river, into a person’s pysche’s during the formative years that only a trail of failure and/or counseling can change the course there of. Which comes much later, if it happens at all.

(I’m forming some thoughts on this subject while I finish up with several other time-demanding tasks. I would love to hear your thoughts on this in the meanwhile though. So feel free to post your ideas below.)

Overcoming Depression

I am doing some limited talks on how I have managed chronic depression. I would like to Skype as well as do some public speaking on this subject. I’m willing to speak at most any venue, but I am a believer in Christ Jesus. I wouldn’t want to not be able to speak freely about how my faith has helped me in tremendous ways. You can get in touch with me through my WordPress site or at my email: myjouneyintohealing@gmail.com
