It’s never easy to end a relationship, but that’s even harder to do when that relationship is a family member. In today’s episode Aaron Walker is going to share a story about a domineering mom that was driving her son and daughter-in-law nuts while causing chaos to reign in the family.
If you struggle with some boundaries with family members than this episode is for you.
Confronting My Mom
Aaron shares a story about a man who is really struggling with his mother and how she is driving the family crazy. He knows if he goes to her it will cause division in the family and cause stress, but the man just can’t take it anymore. The mother does help with a number of things making it even more difficult.
“So his mastermind members kind of got around him virtually speaking and said you’ve got to confront her and he didn’t want to do it. He said he’s been dealing with it for 16 years and she was difficult as a teenager and young man and I just know how my mom is. But you are going to have to deal with her if you want any sense of peace in your own family.” - Aaron Walker
Deal With It
Aaron encourages you to deal with those relationships today that need to be dealt with even if they are family members. Do not allow them to rule or dictate your life. By allowing this you are affecting generations to come negatively.
“You can’t let somebody steal your joy and you can’t all them to dictate what is going to transpire in your life.” - Aaron Walker
Go to that person in prayer, never in anger so you can restore that relationship. Get people around you that hold you up and encourage you. Find people who are going to tell you the truth and look out for your well-being. Take the courage to deal with the relationship. Form strong boundaries, even with family members.
“Small minds talk about people, great minds talk about ideas.” - Aaron Walker
