Ever speaking to someone with high self-esteem? Generally, people with high self-esteem as what I have heard and learn during John Rosemond’s training – they are self-centred, self-worshiped as well as entitlement. By the way, these are description by John Rosemond’s Parenting by the Book. Not from me.
Recently I had a conversation with someone on Facebook. I have been accused of calling this person, sensitive. Since then, this person has decided not to communicate with me anymore in Facebook. What can I do? Nothing.
During the Sunday Easter Sunrise Service I had an interesting encountered with 1 sister, I think she is from another country. We were at the van chauffeuring station where the church provided transportation for those who parked their cars very far away.
When the volunteer informed this said sister that the van will come in a short while because it has to chauffer others first. She started saying, “What you mean another van will be here?”
Wah, such serious entitlement.
I then remember another incident about Children’s Church when Retna and I were still serving. For a few times, the parents actually told the teachers that the church is paying the teachers to do the work, so make sure the teachers take good care of their children. Well, the teachers are not being paid in any form. Plainly volunteer. The teachers are doing this because they love to serve in God’s ministry.
Feeling kind of sour right? On these experience?
What to do? In the journey of faith, this is what tested our faith, not all the fun and blessings from God.
How to feel less sour as it is rather impossible not to feel it – trust God, ignore these people and move on.
Cheerio, God bless
