Why are you being so hard on yourself?
September 5, 2012
'How are you doing John?'
'How do you mean 'alright?'
'Well John, obviousely I am not a clairvoyant, so you have to help me out here. How do you feel about that?'
'Why do you say: 'alright?'
I felt like kicking my son, and hissing: 'Come on! Try harder!'
But then suddenly the expert turned to me, and asked: 'Why are you being so hard on yourself?'
Immediately I felt the prickling of tears. Because it's true: I'm being bullied by myself all the time!
'Gee, is it hot in here?' I thought, and searched frantically for a suitable answer. But in the end I got no further than: 'Because.'
And with new understanding I looked at my son.
