They are amazing, and to cover the bases, I’ve offered to pay for any future therapy they may need if I have inadvertently passed on any of my many mental foibles. LikeLiked by 4 people Reply You’re an awesome parent! From your perspective, which are your mental foibles? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks for asking. Hmmm, where to start? If I had to pick the worst of my foibles, it would be my tendency to ruminate. Decision making becomes complicated when you fret over your actions after the fact. That is one thing I didn’t want my kids to emulate, so I tried to keep it to myself. LikeLiked by 2 people Why do you think it’s so complicated for you the decision making process? Why do you fret? LikeLiked by 1 person Those are great questions. It goes back to the ‘nature vs nurture’ theory. I was either born a worrier and second-guesser or those traits were somehow instilled in me at a young age. Most likely, it’s a combination of both.

When I think of the action in question, instead of berating myself for doing or saying something stupid, I think of something I said or did that was worthwhile and give myself a pat on the back. I also try to think of the entire event and how lucky I was to be a part of it or I think of the good that came out of it for all involved. Thanks for asking.
