“Their feelings, beliefs and actions are their responsibility, not yours.”
This quote is taken from my fellow blogger Cynthia Bailey Rug, in her post she mentions a very informative book on the subject called “Boundaries” by Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsen
I am thankful to Cynthia who writes so many very helpful posts on overcoming having been abused emotionally and physically.
I will be working on this subject for a long time as I have only just begun this journey finding my boundaries. Today I found a conversation between Jesus and his disciples in Matthew 15: 12-14
The disciples told Jesus that the Pharisees were displeased and offended by what Jesus had told them. He had confronted them with great hypocrisy in giving their money to the temple instead of taking care of their old parents. Jesus’ answer was :
Let them alone and disregard them; they are blind guides and teachers. And if a blind man leads a blind man, booth will fall into a ditch
It is so easy for me to become insecure if anybody gets offended or cross with me. So this is an example to remember.
