Parking Ticket


I just got a parking ticket because I forgot to pay for parking. I’m having a lot of thoughts about how stupid I am and that I can’t afford this right now and I should have remembered. I also have a client who spends a lot of time arguing with the past. She believes that it’s horrible to make mistakes that could have been easily prevented. I am kinda feeling the same way today. It’s so stupid and unnecessary and I hate that I forgot.

I know Brooke teaches that “we know it should have happened because it did,” but I am really struggling to apply that right now.

One part of me thinks I “should” (I want to) be upset about forgetting to pay for parking and getting a ticket. But I also have a feeling that “I hate myself” is not a productive thought in this situation. Any guidance would be appreciated!
