One thing which became very clear to me while doing my self awareness walk, and even this past weekend at the 2009 Labor Day Retreat, was the idea of how badly we take rejection. It’s amazing how when you are forced to look back on your past relationships you realize just how poorly you let them finish.
So many times when a relationship would end, I would have two reactions. I would either turn into a whiny crying kid who just had his red fire truck run over. Or I’d be the spiteful bully who’d push you into your locker just because you got chocolate pudding and I got vanilla.
So I got back from the 2009 Labor Day Retreat yesterday after a nice long 11 hour drive, which normally should have been no more than 6 hours. All day I’ve been asked by friends what I thought, what I got out of it, what was my favorite part etc. They all want to know what I thought about a conference on Datability.
I’m in Destin Florida for the Labor Day Holiday weekend participating in the Labor Day Retreat which is a Christians Singles Conference put on by BuckHead Church’s larger group NorthPoint Ministries.
Today, more specifically Saturday night, was the first session and it put something on me which I had always believed and thought about but wasn’t sure how to full express it.
Oneness is what we should all be striving for.
Now I know a bunch of you are going to read that and think. What the H E Double Hockey Sticks are you talking about Eric? Why should I be one when I can be two and for some of you three or more. Or you might even be thinking that you’ll never get married if you’re always seeking oneness.
