MORE DESTRUCTIVE DEFENSES
What do we do when we find ourselves
in one of our destructive patterns?
We’ve spent time identifying and understanding where they come from.
But that doesn’t make them go away. We can think about it, analyze it, pray about it.
And still we find ourselves back in that same destructive pattern.
And the destructive pattern doesn’t work!!
It doesn’t get us what we want.
Other people can feel the energy of it.
They react to that energy even if we believe that we hidden it.
Since our defense systems were designed to keep us safe, the other person should understand, right?
But NO!! Instead they go into their own reactive defense systems and either withdraw or attack!!
That’s not what I wanted.
