As I dive more deeply into this spiritual journey, I am further convinced that empathy, as we know it, is not healthy. Renee Tarot
Why Do You Care More Than the Universal Powers Do?
Most spiritual practitioners who are over the age of 40 were taught to feel other people’s burdens. Did you know this can lead to mental health issues?
There are many spiritual texts that exist in the world, yet there are as many interpretations and ‘voices of God’ as there are people. Some of you grew up giving your lives to Christ in some form or other and being taught biblical principals that we now know lead to insanity. Who among us is qualified to determine what is right or wrong?
Unfortunately, I must admit this book, and especially this chapter, are written as a result of my personal experience with certain negative situations and behaviors, namely infidelity, which surprisingly left my #mind in #one #piece. I have chosen to take a bit of a different approach on the topic of cheaters in this divorce/break up blog. You can easily go to the internet, library or bookstore and find loads of articles and periodicals about characteristics of people who cheat, specifically men, which I will focus on since I am a heterosexual woman and that is where my firsthand experience lies. I actually have decided to deal with what I think I needed to learn from the situation, hoping that someone will benefit from this.
Some of what I discovered came from conversations with the “other woman” who indulged me by telling me what my husband had said about his ‘love’ for her and what he’d told her about me (believe it or not, this person was very similar to me, except not as faithful :). I have also talked to male relatives who cheated to get their perspective from a man’s point of view. With regard to speaking to the other woman, it was more of a relief than anything to have firm proof that my suspicions were not unfounded and that I was in my right mind.
