Self reliant dating
The Lord wants us to become both spiritually and temporally self-reliant.
Other people will come and go, or they’ll be emotionally unavailable for their own personal reasons. They are struggling trying to meet their own needs.Plan a Mutual activity that will help the young women apply what they learned in this lesson.I’m the first to admit that for many years, I was a bit emotionally needy.This caused all kinds of problems I didn’t even realize were there: I’d have relationship problems because if the other person wasn’t meeting my needs, I’d resent it.I’d be unhappy lots of the time, because I thought happiness was outside of me, and therefore it was unreliable and elusive.And then we become adults, without having learned emotional self-reliance.And so we look for someone else to fill our emotional needs.I can’t claim to be an expert on this topic, but I can share some things I’ve been learning.It’s a very, very useful process, as those who are already emotionally independent can attest to. Ask yourself these questions: This list isn’t comprehensive, of course, but some of you can probably see yourselves in a couple of those questions (or more), if you’re completely honest. I still have some of these issues myself, though I’m getting better at them.Not in a crazy, desperate way, but in the way that many of us are.I wanted someone else to make me happy, blamed others for my unhappiness, sought to fulfill my emotional needs through others.
