What’s better than somebodiness/success?

Not needing somebodiness/success.  What’s better than being respected, admired, envied?  Having a healthy-indifference to anyone’s respect, admiration, envy of me.

How does one obtain a healthy-indifference to the somebodiness his flesh CRAVES?  Jesus provides this to those who are aware of the problem and want help — who want to be rescued from the prison of approval addiction — not just others’ approval, but my own approval of me.

Self-awareness without self-acceptance is a miserable existence.  Most live in denial of their misery.  I’ve not been very-self-aware or very-self-accepting all my life, until recent years.  A free ebook, that I didn’t write, has been used of Jesus to grow me much-more-self-aware and much-more-self-accepting.  Much-more healthy-indifference.  If you’d like a copy of the book, and my notes about how Jesus has used it in my life, lemme know.

ask Jesus to grow you as the chief confessor in the home, not the chief accuser, or the chief expert on all things Christian.  If you unwittingly give them the impression that you’ve got this Christia
