Oppressive Behaviors

Part of the spirit of Christianity involves helping people who feel weighed down by unfair treatment.


Such behaviors can occur between friends and spouses, such as picking on a friend when feeling bored or not listening to a spouse who has a more mild personality.

There are many common behaviors that can feel oppressive to people. Part of the spirit of Christianity is relieving the oppressed, so Christians want to be careful to avoid oppressive behaviors and teach others to do the same. Such behaviors can occur between friends and spouses, such as picking on a friend when feeling bored or not listening to a spouse who has a more mild personality.

A cause of these behaviors can involve not being aware of oneself and others in the moment--acting more on autopilot. It can also involve not having thought about one's habits and why one thinks the way they do. This why it is important to both understand why one thinks or acts the way they do at times and be able to catch themselves before they start to act a certain way.


Often feeling like one is not being listened to by a spouse because of a quieter disposition or knowing one's only friend might start treating them poorly as soon as there is nothing to do can feel suffocating. This is why Christians always want to be thinking about the lives and feelings of the people around them and how those lives and feelings are affected by their actions. This insight is valuable to share among Christians and others from the public to help alleviate people in those corners of life where they feel stifled by the behaviors of the people in their immediate lives.
