I so appreciate the comments and support of the previous blog.
I am in a better place now, partially due to your caring and partially due to the fact that I have chosen to let it go and implemented destressers so that I can move forward.
I am responsible for me. I do my best. I care.
I cannot change others.
I was caught by surprise by the Spark-mail from Coach Jen. Because of where I was at, I took it as a 'reprimand' As I look at it now, she was 'passing on' a message from a person who would rather 'whine and not accept responsibility'. This person is young and blames a lot. I have an amusing analogy in my mind of a 'tattle-telling 4 year old'.

As I tell my patients, 'I can give you the information. It is your responsibility to use it to make the best choices for your life.'

    I'm sorry to read this happened to you, I'm so glad that you're in a better place about it now. I must be missing something, but can't see anything wrong with your comment that was complained about.

    I'm glad you are letting it go. I have found you to be very helpful. I'm sure whatever was said was meant to be helpful. We can't control how others "take" what we say. Sometimes people are in a place where one word can be taken wrong and it is really how they feel that is the problem!

Keep Sparking

    I get a bit nervous myself because I tend to talk straight.....and I know that not everyone can handle the truth. Oooh hope I dont get into "trouble" one day too.

    I love it Pat!

You are so right about giving the patient information to help themselves, but then again it's their responsibility to put it to use.

Well done! I love it! I love it!

You've hit the nail on the head! emoticon emoticon

    It sounds like you have done well with re-looking at the situation. I think we tend to take negative comments to heart (I know I do) but when revisited the following day, I can see it differently. Take care and blessings to you!! Make your best choices as you can!
