Writing from Africa
We need as a continent to be enlightened more about these things - we are becoming more and more Westernised (nuclear families,workaholics, stressed, pollution, industrialized, more single households etc) and less African (stay at home mums, comforts of living in extended families,love for people,strong marriages and social life,hospitality,friendliness). We are more capitalistic and more interested in making financial bonds than long lasting emotional & healthy bonds.
I come from a broken home, where my mother was so busy with work trying to make a good home for us when my dad left. This topic has exposed the root of feelings of anxiety, depression, need to please, cowardliness etc you name it (internalized person with fear of abandonment).
The upside is you are telling me that I can be healed through Jesus Christ and with counseling. I am very excited about this and would even love to even study Psychology!!AMEN
