SOMETHING TO PONDER : What would you tell your child to do ?
Mothers tend to do for their children what they might not always do for themselves . your actions and experiences are setting the bar for your children to follow in . Over the years I have had women come to me telling me how they are in a toxic ,unhealthy and loveless relationship , they hate their job and feel miserable and depressed or were being bullied by a boss or friend . I always listen and then ask them these simple questions :
- If this was your child and he/ she was in this relationship , job or having this experience with a friend , what kind of advise would you give them ?
- If it’s not ok for them , why is it ok for you ?
- What kind of example are you setting ? You are setting the pace by showing them that this is ok.
- What advise would you give your child and how can you apply this to your self and situation ?
