Day 27 – A problem I have
I have taken a Blog Challenge to blog daily for 30 days mostly about myself so that you and others can get to know me a bit better. Tell a friend about www.jacobfields.org this month, or like and interact with me on my Facebook ministry page at Facebook.com/Jacobwfields
I have a lot of problems let’s be honest, and no I’m not in a math class. My problems are many and deep, but they are not the worst problems or the most of anyone. I do my best to not let my problems affect my life but at times they do, otherwise they would not be a problem. My primary problem is rooted in the abandonment issues from my biological father not being a part of my life and the man I called dad committing suicide when I was in second grade. This circumstance lead me constantly to tell myself that I had to be better than I was/am in order to be loved, and that if I let someone down that they would leave and I would be alone.
So because I am so afraid of letting people down, I am not good at saying no. I am also not good at asking a question that I think “no” is the likely answer. Basically I am a people pleaser to a fault. I will too often avoid conflict. I often give some things more attention than they deserve at the cost of attention to things that actually need more attention.
I am working on it. Pray for me.
