A Picture of Emotionally Health Sonship Life Skills
Many people are discouraged because they’ve tried to overcome in life and be successful but it continually eludes them. Some of them find themselves getting older and still not being in the place they wanted to be by now, battling with the same things year after year their whole life. Sonship life skills hold the key.
Maybe there are certain relationships that invariably are a challenge, or perhaps there’s been a long pattern of feeling on the outside. Whatever the issue is, it seems like success can never be quite attained.
A Vision to Run With
But here’s some good news for you. When you can see what emotional health is supposed to look like, you’re in a much better place to attain it.
I met Greg when he was in his late 20s. He came from a nice family and grew up in church. In high school he had plenty of friends, did well at sports, and made good grades. He went right on to college where he also made decent grades, graduated on time, and didn’t get into trouble.
How did Greg have such good social skills?
How was he successful at school and sports?
Greg had setbacks throughout his life just like everybody does. When he was young there was the time he made a big mistake on his soccer team which cost them the game; there was the time another kid didn’t like him and talked about him behind his back; there was the time he just couldn’t figure out chemistry class.
The difference is – he had the emotional support and life skills to work through these issues when they happened.
As an adult, Greg had a desire to work at his church and volunteered in the youth ministry. Everyone liked him. He did a good job having fun with the teens but also holding their respect. Greg went on to be one of the associate pastors in his church. He has since married a nice girl and is on a good career/ministry path.
I looked at Greg and thought, he’s seems more mature in his 20s than I am in my 40s after years of being in healing ministry. This wasn’t exactly true, but the road to maturity for me has been a long one because of the abuse I grew up in.
However, Greg experienced from a young age that he was loved and accepted just the way he was. And he learned healthy life skills from his parents -skills such as healthy social interaction and issue resolution.
Unfortunately most of us did not grow up with this type of security and understanding.
Nevertheless, if we didn’t get the skills Greg received, we don’t get a free pass. The path to success is not mysterious – there are clear skills and principles that make it happen or not.
Once you identify the issues blocking your success, you can work through them and learn those skills you’re missing, and can then become an overcomer and be the success you’ve always wanted to be.
