Responses to Weakness - Wilder, Khouri, Coursey, & Sutton (Joy Starts Here, p. 185)

This quote was added by genevajmm
Many people raised with low-joy find that the first thing on their faces or out of their mouths is a low-joy response to the weaknesses they see. Many cultures are so shaped to punish weakness that everyone pounces on faults. Parents pounce as they are "preparing their children to face the world" rather than fitting them for a joyful, multigenerational community of hope. It is easy to hate ourselves for our weaknesses.
