What is your typical response to relationship wounds? Do you pull away and isolate? Do you seek out relationships with others to assist you in working through the conflict? Do you engage in a relationship with objects or activities such as food, drugs, alcohol or sex? Or do you remain engaged in the relationship within which you were wounded in an effort to work through the problems and find healing?
Dr. Tim Clinton, president of the American Association of Christian Counselors, suggests that “it is within relationships that we are wounded; It is within relationships that we are healed.” God hot-wired us for relationships. If you are responding to your relationship wounds by isolating or by attaching to other objects or activities, you are not responding the way God desires.
