Here's the thing- I am a really, inordinatly, outrageously wholistic thinker. Show me one dot and I can see the planet. I'm not kidding. So where that gets me in trouble is thusly; when I receive some criticism or difficulty at work, say, from my boss, then very easily I can make these associations:
my boss doesn't support me.
no bosses do or will support me.
the problem is with this entire organization.
I can not go on working for this organization.
Now here's the thing: am I really very well able to see the systemic problems in an organization, or am I just hysterical? Maybe any given criticism is just that, criticism... but maybe it really is a tip of the ol' iceberg.
And so, ultimately, I can't tell which is God's voice, and which is... not. (could it beeee......mmmmmSaaaaatannn???)
