I think my intentional model is “right,” but not sure about the unintentional one. Your insight is always appreciated.
I’ll start with my thought download:
I’m really worried about my dog. I’m afraid she may have pneumonia or some other life-threatening condition. I wish I had made an appointment for her sooner. It’ll be completely my fault if she dies from this, and it was preventable. I’m not a great mother. I wish I had more compassion for her, were more affectionate with her.
C: Dog is sick.
T: It’ll be completely my fault if she dies from this, and it was preventable.
A: Judge myself. Blame myself. Resolve to never let this happen again. Find more evidence of why I’m not fit to run the non-profit. Ruminate over how sick she is.
R: I give up on the non-profit, and other pet parents who make mistakes won’t get the support and compassion they need.
C: Millie is sick.
T: She needs my love & support.
A: I am tender with her. I spend more time with her. I let her be if she doesn’t want to walk or eat.
R: I support & love her.
