FLH and I were talking the other day about someone we know who feels they got the raw end of the growing up stick. That the way they were treated growing up led them to have a smaller vision of their life and fewer accomplishments.
If you believe, as I do, that you create your own life and future, this is troublesome thinking. Because at any point in your life, you’re free to step outside your perceived limitations. In most cases.
It was troublesome for FLH, too.
That’s because the flip side of this “raw deal” was that they also got “special treatment.”
“So,” FLH asked. “Did they turn down this special treatment?”
Ummm….no. That would be NO.
In capital letters.
Funny about that.
