"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” — Mathew 11:28-30
Morning Folks! Found this piece on my diary entry. Just the months before last months, I was having hard time dealing with my sleep cycle. I was awake when people are asleep, and unhyped when the the majority is up.
Gaming and comics has been my life. It was hard to break away from these habits thankfully, through the grace of God I am fine now, and being saved. The desires to consecrate my life to unproductive stuffs that would only hurt my health is gone. I am a free person now. I am no longer a prisoner of my old habits. I thank you Jesus for finding me and being my saviour. ✝️
Sharing this accurate Bible verse:
If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away, behold all things have become new. —2 Corinthians 5:17
Sometimes we already know the right answers, yet we still are conflicted on what to do. This time it's not only a matter of deciding for ourselves. This time in every step we make others are also involved. Like ripples.
Good day! When things seem to be unfolding beyond our capacity, we all have our own ways to protect ourselves and others. This is what they called as the ego defense mechanism as introduced by the Austrian-psychologist Sigmund Freud. According to the Freudians, it is okay to use a defense mechanism when the conflict seems to be complicated to resolve at that moment; however, if it is habitually done it became unhealthy.
If you are going through something hard right now like mental health condition etc., don't hesitate to seek help. We are not weak when we seek help, in fact that is a sign of bravery. To be able to admit your own flaws and weaknesses, is not easily done by everyone. Pretending to be strong when you're not is not always good (habitual usage of a defense mechanism is unhealthy), there is a tendency that you would be physically and emotionally burnt out. Don't do that, you're just exhausting yourself. Anyways, if you need someone to talk to please feel free to contact me. Or connect with Christ Jesus, the best listener ever. I've been through rough past too (narcissistic) and it was the Lord Christ Jesus who purely help me changed. This I am sharing because it's true. Without partiality nor hypocrisy. I want you to feel better too. ❇️
Sharing this comforting verses in the Holy Bible:
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand (Isaiah 41:10). ✝️
Light shines folks! I wonder what color is your day? I think I am having a bluish day. Emotianally blue, but I know it won't last forever. Afterall, everything on earth is temporary. This month my dad passed away. He was a warrior battling against brain tumors. I saw, I heard, I know his sufferings. The pain he felt while his senses were deteriorating. He was clinically depressed. It was heartbreaking. He was in so much pain, but there's nothing we can do. I wonder how the doctors felt when their patients die. I wonder if they did their best. I wonder why when my father passed away there was not a single doctor to say I am sorry for your loss. Perhaps it was no longer a part of their service. Perhaps I was expectinging too much of their service. My father died wearing a hero's cape. An invisible cape of saving me from my apathy, from my narcissistic self. Here on earth I will never see him again. Never get to hear his lively voice. Never get to eat his popcorn. Never get to watch The Walking Dead with him... But, my Lord is an amazing Lord. My Lord knows how much I've fallen, broken. He knows me. He knows what I need. I need Him. Amidst my sorrow he found me.
I entrust my life to Jesus. The good shepherd who knows me, and will always find me when the storm is too horrifying for me to pass through. He blessed me with a good dad. A dad who taught me to believe. A dad who's been teaching me how to love. A dad who taught me that the temple of God is our body. A dad who will pray for me. I will see him again. Soon when the time has come. I may grief, but this grief is temporary. I will see my dad again. I will hug him with the blessings of the Lord guiding me.
Bright day folks! How is everyone doing? Rough? Tough? Smooth? Good? Great? Old? Anyways, your healed narcissist here is doing fairly fine. Today, I would like to have a little tap on your mind, hoping it is possible.
Did you know there are in fact millions of undiagnosed narcissists? Well, how can I call them narcs if they're not diagnosed? Okay, admitted. Consider it my rubbish claim. How about this, do you know just like your Myers-Briggs personality result, there are also different types of narcs? Not all narcs are extroverted, are you aware? Yes, this one is true. Your healed narc in here is introverted. Are you familiar with overt and covert narcissism? Though, the types of narcissism has not yet been included in the latest DSM.
Overt narcs are the narcs you are best familiar with. The attention seeker. Conversation invader. The showoff. The grandiose and they do not hide how much they love being complimented and admired. Aw, that addiction for being admired that make them often lose their emphaty. Because, it should only be them to receive all the best words. I know you've read it. I have mention the word 'hide.' Covert narcissists on the other hand, are the silent narcs. They are the narcs who coverly showoff their desire to be admired. Covert narcissism is clinically marked with anxiety and depressions. For the covert narcs, everything is a competition. Everyday is a competition. So, they always have that one goal, to be the champion. To be the one on the spotlight. If ever someone else wins that spot light, it's so hardcore for them to recover. Thus, consistent failures make them super anxious the next time.
Disclaimer: Not everthing in here is a generalizable fact. Let us not be hasty to judge. Best not to judge.
Sharing this wonderful verse:
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. ||Isaiah 41:10||
I used to be a covert narcissist. I was always anxious depressed, suicidal. I seek for admirations, but only failures I found. It was hell to have this personality disorder. I know because I've been there. But, of course life is not just about downs. When I allowed the Christ to enter in me, behold it was a major change. All of the old things have passed away. All things have become new. I seek the Lord, and He found me. I know I am saved. So, here I am sharing what I know exhorting you to get the Holy Book. Read them. Truly, I testify life outside Christ is confusing. This I know. Here I'll be glorifying the name of the Lord guiding me.
Jesus is the Lord, and God raised Him from the dead.
A lovely day to you mates! I would like to know how lovely are you today regardless of those snippets of excruciation. Seriously, how are you?
Okay! Let me tell that life is full of shits. Shit words, shit fate, shit names, shittiest events, shit fakes, shit SHITS. Shits are all around you big and small. They're present everywhere. To fuck your life.
Congrats! 'Cause they smell worse than your mouth. Well, you're a lot better than those shits if, you have not become one of them. Read these tips, they're free:
Tip 1: Don't act shitty, just because you've been shitted. Tip 2: Wear your protection, your mask- the Holy Bible, read them so you would know what are shits, who are the shits, and to know when you're being shitted. Tip 3: This is for those who do not understand the shit language. If you're down, feeling alienated, if you feel like there's no purpose in life, and there's no more reason to live, I exhort you my friend to get the Bible, seek the Lord, and the Lord will never leave and forsake you. Jesus is a merciful Lord.
In this shit world, when we are becoming shit ourselves, there's still a way to be purified. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father before Him. (John14:6)
The life outside Christ is full of confusions (read James 3:16-18 to know more), I've been there, it's full of shits. So, I am sharing this living WORDS so you may be saved. Don't follow me, don't follow your preachers, don't praise them. For praises is for God. Follow the good Shepherd Jesus. Honor and Glory be to God!
Greetings mates! Did you know August is the month when bouquet of roses is less sold? Nevermind it was a joke. Anyways, I always find red roses universally unique. I think if I were to associate narcissists with flowers, roses suit them best. Attractive upfront, but deep down is a pointy personality. Toxic/prickly you may say.
Despite the enchanting beauty, they do have thorns. I wonder if you know why? Welp, because its their way of protecting themselves. An unhealthy way of dealing with mental conflicts. They hurt others to protect themselves.
Narcissists are weak, they can't handle reality. If you think narcissists love themselves so much, it's the exact opposite. They hate themselves so very much. They have very low self-esteem, escalating their addiction to be admired and appreciated.
For narcissists are weak, sharing this Bible verse: We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. ||Romans 15:1||
We look at an old chair and wonder whose bottom once sat there. Was it someone Royal or someone posh with lots and lots of dosh, or was it someone poor that treasured a comfortable seat. No matter whom it was, just look and wonder at the history of that old chair, then just sit on it and put more history there.
