Hello Inner Coach
Loved the Inner coach cartoon - powerful!
Your vulnerablility and willingness to share your experiences is a gift to all of us. If you can look in the mirror and honestly say, "I did the best I could.",that has to be enough. If you did the best you could, let it go and move on
Ahhhh yes: Shoulding on yourself. I know this one well. 👍👍
I tell myself every day, " I loved her, I wasn't perfect, I made a lot of mistakes, BUT I was learning on the job and I know I did the very best I could at the time." And I will believe this someday., I know. You speak to a LOT of us, Janice. That video was adorable. Amazing puppetry.
On our way to church last Sunday. I told Gloria I don’t like supervising. And she said I don’t like being supervised. And I said well I can understand that my supervisory techniques are well trained by somebody who had to supervise contractors over the years and I’m sure that I can be a little bit gruff. No, probably a whole lot gruff. You mentioned some where I think that your husband was in a locked facility. My former occupation was building skilled nursing care facilities and I built a locked facility in Redding California a few years back.
I always try to preface my remarks by saying “let’s go do this“ or sometimes forming it as a question would you like to go for a ride or would you like to paint for a while? These more gentle approaches seem to work better. thanks for sharing , I think that it’s good to open up and allow others to see that they are not alone and their struggles.
I refer to mine as a drill sergeant! And he’s mean.
