Sometimes not dealing with our wounds can bring out a defensive entitled character trait. Time and time again I see it in our son we adopted. If we tell him no to something, immediate defense goes into action partnered with entitlement. As if by my telling him no is transferred and processed as my not valuing who he is to me.
When we examine every part of our being including what comes in our thoughts and out of our mouth we are not following suit with the saying, “Hurting people hurt people” Guarding our hearts is not meaning to stay away from people but in fact the opposite.. yes by all means make contact with as many as possible but guard what is to come out of us.
