Family can be overwhelming

family can be overwhelming

Vertical relationships in a cohesive household structure can be overwhelming.  There are weaknesses, as well as strengths, in having one’s individual identity bound so strongly to the community.  It is true that Arabs also want to be valued as individuals in their own right.

A heady individualism seems to burst out of the constraints of family ties when a person feels that he or she has the strength to successfully defy the weight of tradition.  Within the norms of a society in which the ‘group’ mentality counts for so much, some people seek to alter the assigned view of themselves by ‘becoming’ someone different.

 

 

 

 

About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
