Inside-out and Outside-in

Inside-out viewpoint

The Bible says that “the last days”—the time period leading to the end—would be marked by a major deterioration of peoples’ attitudes. We read: “Men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God.”

The world is dangerous. It is like we are looking at the thunderstorm through the window from indoor.

Outside-in viewpoint

Solomon’s own counsel proved true: “More than all else that is to be guarded, safeguard your heart, for out of it are the sources of life.”

We keep secrets in the figurative heart. It is like there is an indoor surveillance camera installed to monitor every words and deeds of us.

Somewhat (maybe even closely) resembling externalization vs. internalization, which are concepts of immense importance in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).

Patients who can grasp these two BIG ideas tend to climb up out of their depressions, shuck their anxieties, ease out of post-traumatic stress disorder, and integrate the emotional-pain-inducing, disintegrated, black-and-white, all-good-or-all-bad, either/or thinking that is so characteristic of sz.

Internalizing and externalizing behavior

A student with EBD with “internalizing” behavior may have poor self-esteem, suffer from depression, experience loss of interest in social, academic, and other life activities, and may exhibit non-suicidal self-injury or substance abuse. Students with internalizing behavior may also have a diagnosis of separation anxiety or another anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), specific or social phobia, obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, and/or an eating disorder. Some research suggests students with EBD with internalizing behavior are underdiagnosed; teachers are more likely to write referrals for students that are overtly disruptive, and screening tools to detect students with high levels of internalizing behavior are not sensitive and are rarely used in practice.[10]

Students with EBD with “externalizing” behavior may be aggressive, noncompliant, extroverted, or disruptive, and generally “act out” inappropriately. Students with EBD that show externalizing behavior are often diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), conduct disorder, and/or bipolar disorder; however, this population can also include typically developing children that have learned to exhibit externalizing behavior for various reasons (e.g., escape from academic demands or access to attention). These students often have difficulty inhibiting emotional responses resulting from anger, frustration, and disappointment, and may exhibit behaviors such as insulting, provoking, threatening, bullying, cursing, and fighting, along with other forms of aggression; noncompliance with and disrespect towards teachers and other authority figures is also common. Male students with EBD exhibit externalizing behavior more often than their female counterparts.[11]

The middle age/middle class men here have snapped, all is a play.

Church is run by dirty business elements and used as tool…

Devil is making many by swindles, money loudly shows true person. Devil later asks for favor to harm the poorers…Expect nothing from wealthy family even, at least you know the evil or good that dwells there, but no help will come to you ever from a wealthy family member’s money. Wealthy who help family are ruined by the devil. GOT TO HELP YOURSELF & TAKE CARE OF YOURS!

Guard your heart, silence the complaints, leave the cities, work on prosperous country existence, care for your neighbors and wait…Church leaders in country are just as manipulative as they cover the evil presence and its usage. Guard your heart and silence your complaints in your church, is a meeting place for all to witness, silently judge and plan your associations/avoidances.

Anything talking about Jesus or God, is the opposite and doorway to long hell. Anti-christ or scammers. REALLY BAD SCAM THIS IS!
