Robert: Positively Living: Adult or Grown Child, Which are you?
by Robert Colling
This is my first posting for Positively Living . I wanted to write something witty to brighten your day. But right now I am struggling in keeping my own thoughts in order to even write this; because my blood pressure is extremely high. I’m frustrated. I’m upset with people that don’t care. I’m down right pissed. I get so aggravated with people that treat me like I’m stupid because I don’t know what they know…Has that ever happened to you?
That’s when I have to remind myself, ‘What is it that differentiates between an Adult and a Grown Child?’ For years I have struggled with this question while interacting with people. I have prayed many times for guidance and understanding. I have watched with open eyes and ears, trying to understand that people God brings into my path for a reason. With this, I have come to the conclusion that there are many Grown Children playing Adult. You are surrounded by them, all in different stages of growing; ranging from extremely polite and quiet to loud and arrogant. Do NOT let them dictate and malign you. You are an Adult. Hold your head high. Listen for the Lord. Understand who and what surrounds you, all while being polite and respectful. Then open your mouth and say something.
Here is only one key difference (out of many) between a Grown Child and an Adult. A Grown Child makes all decisions from what feels good, without regard for other people, Selfish. An Adult makes decisions with a degree of empathy for those in the situation. An Adult will make mistakes, but they learn from them and apologize quickly, while correcting and growing. Where are you?
What I am describing is a small nugget of a walk with Christ. Growing in empathy and understanding is a gift that involves your participation. Be honest with yourself. Allow good people to see and interact with the messy, miserable sides of ourselves. Keep your chin up; God has good things planned for you.
Thank you. This has been therapeutic for me and I hope good for you too.

Positively Living broadcasts from radio station AM1350 WZGM in Asheville NC. Sunday’s episode of Positively Living is focused on Bullies in the Workplace!
Have you ,or someone you know, been the victim of Bullying in your workplace? If so, you may want to tune into our show to understand bullies and how to react. Sometimes it is difficult to point your finger on if it is bullying or just a bad boss.
This topic is not a positive issue which is what we strive for on Positively Living but to handle difficult and important problems in life, personally- spiritually and in business, we must be able to recognize and know how to handle the situation. We must also realize that it is not a fault in us but the bullying person.
We hear of bullying in schools and on playgrounds too . But bullying doesn’t just happen to children. It is rampant in the workplaces across the world and in our own hometown.
Ron Watkins, of Mountain Sky Consulting , joins me to share important information on “Bullies in the Workplace”

Notes from Positively Living host, Leslie Godbold:
On Positively Living, our mission is to among other things, bring you news, life stories and events that may positively and lovingly touch your life. With this in mind, I want to remind you of an event happening 8pm tonight on the History Channel, The Bible series.
I am excited and looking forward to “The Bible Series” airing on the History channel tonight Sunday 3/3/13 at 8pm EST.
There is much negativity and anger in the world. But I believe there is more positive and good that outweighs the bad.
One of the positive and good, is airing tonight. I ,and I hope you, will be sitting in front of the televisions, computers, etc watching the first episode of the 10 hour mini series The Bible”.
So often I am asked, “Did you watch the bachelor, dancing with the stars, the voice, etc?” I have to answer No, I don’t watch that.
But tonight I will be watching the all time Reality show “the Bible”. Based on the living word of my Father in Heaven, God, Hosanna, the One and Only true God.
I hope you will be experiencing with me, life stories that bring joy, love and inspiration to me personally.

Notes from Leslie:
We hope our next episode of Positively Living will open your eyes to the different connections and involvements of our guest, Clint Parker’s story. Is time removing important community connections? Connections that once gone, may push each of us away from our neighbors and community concerns? Pushing us closer into “Me, me, me ” instead of Caring for our neighbors.
If we are surrounded only by like minded persons, how can we connect with those in need?
Thank you to our Father, Clint Parker, our listeners and readers and the Positively Living crew for contributing to this episode.
