Your Family Life Balance Point
Approaching Family Relationships (Your Pathos)
Pathos helps you understand that emotions vary from person to person, therefore the importance of understanding specific social situations is important to successfully utilize emotional intelligence. The skill of persuasion through emotional appeal and how you respond to others and situations depicts a key aspect of your pathos.
Making time for you to think and grow.
To be adequately prepared for your journey, begin from where you are by asking yourself three important questions and write down your answers:
Why am I the way I am?
Why do I do what I do?
Why do I believe what I believe?
If you find yourself experiencing one or more of the following, then you are in the right place at the right time…
You as a family seek after the key disciplines needed for success but somehow they elude you
You find it difficult to trust family members
You are filled with emotions and feelings, but are unable to express them appropriately or even express them at all
You are stressed out, often angry, and overwhelmed
You feel that no one really understands you
You can’t seem to accumulate enough security in your life…there never seems to be enough to make me feel secure
You experience a gnawing ache of loneliness, even when you’re with people
You’re waiting and hoping for someone or something to bail you out of your life’s trials
