f

“F” stands for Family. Our environment—from nuclear family to the greater extended relationships with those who surround and influence us—friends; others we look up to; coworkers; the culture we are raised in; and even, and not least of all, the media. These all amend what we think and believe. Our most hidden thoughts, along with their accompanying beliefs, usually come from our family of origin. (Example: Our parents criticized our character rather than our actions, leading us to doubt our sense of worth.)

Family.  Family of Origin, and Family of Man.  Church family, extended family.  Work Family.  Society and the world.
