Criticism- can’t take it.

I know, I’m a grown up. I’m 52 to be exact. That’s a fully grown up. Actually , soon I might be entering the “growing down ” phase, that’s how much of grown up I am. And yet- I resent any kind of criticism -about me or my kids. Not other people- don’t be funny …

I discovered I am a double-standard hypocrite.

Don’t get me wrong- I’m the biggest advocate of planning ahead, constant assessment of situations and thinking macro- And yet- on the day to day basis- we need to eat, drink, rest, and take care of our selves, in a manner that could be perceived (wrongly) …
