knowing me, knowing you

Ahaaaa.

I am currently attending a course about transforming conflict. A part of it includes reflecting on a personality analysis of myself. It’s far more sophisticated than these ‘what muppet are you?’ quizzes that seem to populate Facebook.

I’m not going to tell you the details about myself because I have a lot more to learn about myself. But it is important to know yourself and how you respond in calm and stormy conditions. If not, it’ll probably be more difficult to help others if you don’t know what sort of approach you prefer to use.

It’s difficult not to react against being categorised and labelled. We’re all unique individuals (just like everyone else) and the blend of personality, experience, ideas and skills, and much more beside, mean that there is nobody else like you on this planet that contains 7 billion of us. Does that make you feel special or scared?

You are you. It helps to understand how you think and what makes you tick but nobody else can be you. One of the things that God wants to do is to help you to be the best you you can be.

If you will let him.

Be blessed, be a blessing.

There's nobody else like me. Aren't you pleased?

  1. I wish there were more Baptists and other Christians of other denominational spots and stripes that think like you do! Pax nobiscum! Sid Rodriguez, USA
