At Columbia University, during the opening session of Emotionally Healthy Activist we covered the 6 components of emotionally healthy activism that emerge out of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality as well as their emotionally unhealthy opposites. We will focus on pride, narcissism, and lack of prudence (hurry) as three key components that make our resistance toxic and unhelpful in our world today.
As aforementioned, in Emotionally Healthy Discipleship we often say "Jesus is in your heart but Grandpa is in your bones" and it's worth saying over and over again. After identifying what are the narratives in your family around comfort, conflict, class and politics - how then were you expected to respond? Let's talk open and honestly about who you were expected to marry, which colleges/universities you were to attend, and who you shouldn't spend too much time with? And consider what God has to say about those things as well.
