Withdrawals. Maybe you’re missing something that you once had, and you don’t have it anymore. That’d be filed under “withdrawals”. But that’s not the kind of withdrawal I’m talking about.
I went to a sermon by a preacher a week or two ago, and he mentioned something about how some people “withdraw” when things don’t seem to be going right. That’s more along the kind of withdrawals I’m thinking about.
I remember in a college course, first learning about pariahs; people sort of ostracized by society, ‘cuz they just didn’t quite fit in. Well, that has something to do with what I’m thinking about.
Why do some people sort of draw within themselves, when maybe they should be reaching out? Why do we sometimes maybe withdraw from people who *are* sort of reaching out?
