Totally believable. Just today I read something that shed light on how my personality type has affected my response to religion and interacting with others. I grew up knowing salvation is “grace alone, faith alone–and both from God”. I was never taught works-based salvation but because of my background, I became independent-minded very young.
Feeling “I am responsible for me” can and did subtly translate into that plus “and friends disappoint, can’t really be trusted.” Never had a co-dependency problem! But my sense of inter-dependency with others is solid, and increasingly so.
Now that God has exposed that lie He is eradicating it and replacing it with a deep, tender affection for friends new and old, a stronger sense of responsibility for them, and a freedom I did not know I lacked. I’ve never been happier or known greater joy. And I know it is His love growing within.
