The Napkin Dad Daily

The Napkin Dad Daily | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

I doubt many perfectionists would agree with this. But if you are a perfectionist and you believe in improvement how do you explain your constant belittling of yourself and your efforts while in the very act of improving? You know that you have to not be perfect in order to improve, otherwise you would already have achieved what you were attempting, right? If you believe in improvement in life, work, relationships, hobbies, creativity, art, and more then you should aspire to improve, not to be perfect.

I could imagine the perfect house that I would live in with a white picket fence and bright green grass in the yard. I could even imagine the perfect marriage to the perfect husband and the perfectly behaved children I would have.

Forgiveness is a Verb and Jealousy is Not Love

Forgiveness is a Verb and Jealousy is Not Love | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

Many people ask me how to forgive. They read that they just have to make a choice to let go, they think that they just decide to do one day and the weight is lifted. They try this, they intend to let go, and they feel peace. But then later that day, the next day, or the next week, it comes back. Why? They wonder, I let it go. I must have not gotten it right. Or, It doesn’t work for me. Or, something is wrong with me, this proves it. The problem is me.

Then I stopped, took a deep breath, and asked myself, “Is it possible I’m not getting what I want, but I’m getting what I need?”

‘Nice child’ can’t rescue hoarder dad

‘Nice child’ can’t rescue hoarder dad | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it
Most of us were shocked this month when a Wayland senior citizen died in a fire at his home with no running water and virtually no way out.

 

Most of us were shocked two years ago when a Bellingham couple and their dog were found dead in their home after emergency responders used a hydraulic wedge to pry open the door blocked by books, boxes and bins stacked to the ceiling.

Barbara Allen is saddened but hardly shocked by such stories.

 

It’s likely only a matter of time before her father is one of those headlines.
