Above Rubies Nancy and Colin Campbell must be slipping because it looks like they are allowing more people to write for them. Today’s piece is written by a man named Joe Goodale. If you Google his name you come up a pile of guys, impossible to determine which one he is. No matter, this one lines up with the emotional repression endemic in all of the writings of Nancy Campbell. Deny all of your negative emotions, and smile or else.
Nancy and Joe are hardly the only ones in Quiverfull teaching this. I saw something earlier at Generation Cedar by that says roughly the same thing. Much of the writing of Debi Pearl, Lori Alexander and many others order this faker-y or emotions as a way of life instead of what it genuinely is, a good way to drive yourself to a nervous breakdown by suppressing all negative emotions until they spill out like Mount Etna blowing.
Have you started off smiling this year? Smiling at your husband? Smiling at your children? Maybe things are not going according to your plans and you don’t feel like smiling! Smile anyway. Did you know that smiles don’t depend on circumstances? Your circumstances may not change but as you smile your attitude will! It will change the atmosphere of your home. The more you smile at your family, the more they will smile back at you!
Please do not do this. Allow yourself to feel your feelings. Don’t smile if you don’t feel up to it. It’s just better for everyone in your life if you are genuine and authentic. People that want to shut down all of your emotions are practicing a form of gas-lighting.
Announcement: I have zero internet in our village this last day. Likely will not have it back until later tomorrow. So no new posts until they fix it. But, boy, stay tuned, have I got a doozy of a post when I come back. Debi Pearl’s book has gone into nuclear crazy territory so I’m not waiting until Saturday to post it.
