Looks like we are not having bootcamp, again. We preemptively cancelled last week for rain. Now, it's raining, so I will send out an early-morning email. I am sure Bob will assume he can sleep-in after seeing the lightening. : )
I started new client a few weeks ago who has been very weepy each time I have seen her. I felt very sympathetic towards her. Although she had been through a LOT of physical and health stuff to which I could not relate, I had been where she was in terms of self-talk. I am NOT the poster child for adaptive self-talk, but, again, I have made progress. When you say, "this is my bad side," it is true no matter how founded in physical reality; it's your bad side. You don't have to lie to yourself, but you can say something more adaptive to move towards progress. "This side is very challenging." Something along those lines.
I am sensitive; It's a character asset that is sometimes challenging. How's that?
