Parenting: Let’s stop defending the status quo
Just because we did something yesterday, doesn’t mean we have to do it today.
Each day gives fresh insight, which allows us to progress.
Perhaps we used to do “time-out”, or spank, or yell.
Perhaps we used to neglect our health or allow our inner voice to say terrible things to us.
Just because we used to do something, does not mean we need to defend it today.
We can forgive our former selves, who didn’t have the awareness we do now, and commit to doing it differently.
If we’re not moving forward then we’re just staying stuck, and that isn’t progress.
