So, I did an interview for a semi-local large newspaper - and I guess did not actually realize how many people would read it...lol..
I was slightly misquoted, or morelike - the bits and pieces of what was quoted are made to seem like something I didnt say..but that's not the point - I knew that could and does happen when you do an interview..
What i was prepared for was the emails/facebook msgs and what not I would get from family/friends basically attacking me and criticizing me. After reading those, then finding the article, and then reading the comments to the article...Im feeling really down, and really unsure. Yes, I know its just a moment..
Anyways...can you guys send me some good vibes - and I dont know..share why and how CL has helped you and your family...I know we do that a lot, but I could really use some good stuff right now...I just feel really personally attacked, and hadnt prepared myself..
I have a newborn and I'm interested in implementing some CL principles from the beginning. I know it's a little early, but is there anything I can try and do at this early stage to start us off on a good foot?
i would reframe your thinking about it... instead of saying she is obsessed, say "she is really enjoying her TV time." this reframing will make it less negative for you and you can gain some joy by seeing her joy. the more joy to spread all around! : focus on enjoying her pleasure and thinking about how you can help create more for everyone.
