My son, who you see here is the first to go to the “dark side” when things don’t go his way. He doubted his readiness. He fought me on preparing for his speech. He complained about the community service that he had to do. He did all that and guess what, he kicked butt!
Sometimes we give the ones we love the hardest time. It seems the way of behavior that we “shine” in front of our peers more so than in front of those who support us. We tend to push away from those who want intimacy and walk towards those who don’t even know us.
Here is my son trying over and over to break a board. The same child that says, “I can’t make pancakes”. Go figure – Where do you shine?
