I don't.Good thing you don't have any lasting issues from that.Exactly.You didn't know what? That your mother was subjugating you?You mean like when you were a kid and your mom would tell you to go take out the trash and you did it?Obeying the will of another is voluntary subjugation.We are not talking about subjugation which means being under complete control, or enslaved, by another. Obedience, on the other hand, is about compliance even though one can choose disobedience. (One cannot be 'dis-subjugated'.)Why does being thankful have to mean subjugating yourself to another?
but as a child I didn't know that.
The best thing about being an adult is that you don't have to obey other people unless you choose to.
My mother was an addict and an addict by definition is a selfish person.
She wanted me to give in to all her demands because she was a selfish person. When i was too young to realize this I obeyed her. When I did realize it I didn't obey.
Anyone who demands obedience desires to subjugate.
But only you can decide if you want to voluntarily subjugate yourself to the demands of another.,
If you ask a person why he wants you to do anything and he says "Because I said so." and you then do it for no other reason then you have just voluntarily subjugated yourself.
I take people at face value and do not try to impose my will on them because I don't want to be selfish like an addict.
