Thanks for such wonderful advice re my dad

I just got off a coaching call and I wanted to say thanks. I was sharing how I was dreading a weekend event where I’ll see my dad for the first time in years. I haven’t spoken to him in over a year.

The coach helped me to see that I was feeling judged where that may or may not have been my dad’s feeling when we last spoke. And that made all the difference for me. Dad was worried about me. Any judgment was coming from a place of concern. In addition, I was judging him incessantly. I don’t like that feeling.

I decided to send a quick email. “Hi Dad, I’m looking forward to seeing you this weekend.”
He wrote back immediately saying he was looking forward to it as well.

I feel so much better.

My new model:

C Weekend trip
T I want to have a good time with my kids and show up as myself no matter what anyone else thinks
F Confident and excited
A Show up, talk to people, don’t hide, be honest and compassionate with myself
R I have a great weekend

Much love to you, SCS team and especially Julie!
