You’re upset. You’re hurt. You’re angry and annoyed. Heck…you’re downright furious…livid even. And you act like it; yelling and screaming at the top of your lungs…acting like a crazy woman. You argue back, interrupt and interject. You got your finger pointing, spit flying, neck rolling…. You aren’t even making any sense. Or, you’re crying hysterically because…he left. Or he cheated. Same thing. Snot leaking down to your top lip, you think you’ll never love again, or be made a fool of again, or give it up so easily again. You start to eat–or stop eating completely. You sleep all the time–or don’t sleep at all. You don’t know if you are coming or going.
You may be a very talented athlete. You may be a gifted speaker. You may be a creative artist. You may have a brilliant mind for business ideas. You may even believe yourself to be a wonderful spouse. But you may not be successful in these areas if you are unwilling to be TAUGHT. Not if you are unwilling to learn; if you are unwilling to be TAUGHT.
There’s a difference.
