I’m beginning to learn that a woman’s outlook on life relies heavily on how her world is created within the home. Her foundation and relationship with her family will determine how she ventures off into the world. Will she sting men with her “I am independent-type attitude” because her father left the family to fend for themselves? Will she seek out emotional connections with any and everyone because she and mommy lacked that aspect of their relationship? In a nutshell, can she become successful in life?
I want to make this clear, because when I speak of success, I’m clearly not speaking of the materialism, solely. You can be successful in your career, bank account, and the other “things” everyone deems important, and still be a failure in your character, morals, values, etc, etc. What does your character look like? How do you cope with your emotions? Are you cold-hearted? Sharp-tongued? Emotionally unstable? Morally and ethically a nightmare?
I’m writing this because over the last couple of weeks, my eyes have opened to the dynamics of family. I believe that the chaos (of divorce and the absence of a parent) is really affecting key leaders, celebrities, the average human, etc. There is a child, stuck in their childhood, screaming and crying to be loved, to be taught, to be cared for; it all goes back to their foundation.
Although I speak of women, I know this applies to both man AND woman.
How was your foundation built?
