When we speak on the phone, I feel her compassion because she is willing to hear and love me unconditionally. She is willing and brave enough to support me through difficult times. Her act of kindness gives me the courage and strength to carry on.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7862653040578109197.post-82331800560793348182011-03-05T08:38:45.455-05:002011-03-05T08:38:45.455-05:00Thanks anonymous for a poignant example of how har...Thanks anonymous for a poignant example of how hard it can be to disappointed, and how much bravery it can take to really feel it--and not fix it. My parenting/professional experience has shown me time and again, that through acceptance we are free to move through the experience more quickly and gain wisdom. When we are brave and wise enough like you, to not insulate our children from the experiences or consequences of their lives, they really get to learn and own their life lessons. By adopting the attitude "All is well"...it is amazing how a disappointment can transform into opportunity.Lisa Dungatehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04612985595527435721noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7862653040578109197.post-16236923541907116922011-03-05T06:32:10.547-05:002011-03-05T06:32:10.547-05:00Just had an opportunity to be emotionally courageo...Just had an opportunity to be emotionally courageous as a parent when my 10YO did not achieve something he wanted REALLY badly in a sport he is passionate about (while watching two of his buddies get to where he wanted to be). So hard to let him deal with the frustration and disappointment without trying to soften the experience!Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
