It is truly amazing when we consider how far we have come since discussions regarding ‘Conscious Parenting’ have been introduced. However, let’s be realistic – this type of parenting will take time before becoming the norm. Before we can become ‘Conscious Parents,’ we first have to work on ourselves as fractured adults who grew up without this type of parenting. Only then can we help our kids be different parents compared to ourselves and previous generations.
Most parents think that by reading, listening to videos and clips and attending online classes they will become conscious parents. That information is mostly on the ‘how’ not on the ‘what’ and ‘why’ the adult of today must do to first clear their own baggage before they can become a conscious parent. It is not possible to do that unless you have sifted through, shifted your own inner gremlins and healed your own wounds and distortions.
Out of 100 people I engaged with, 99.5 were not only averse to confrontation, in fact they are terrified of it. Confrontation and Public Speaking are practically siblings! Why are people so afraid and nervous about confrontation?
Let me enlighten you dear reader, these issues will not disappear like the rabbit in the magician’s hat. Until and unless we learn that ‘Confrontation is an opportunity to resolve and dissolve the past’ and move forward without that particular baggage we will not change the present nor the future narrative.I have dealt with hundreds of people who cannot resolve their mental health issues as they do not want to confront their inner baggage, or their unresolved childhood issues. This causes so much turmoil and affects the balance in our minds. Consulting a good therapist can assist you to resolve your past and change how you view confrontation. By the way, this can be accomplished without being mean and nasty and can in fact be a conversation when done without a need to go on the defense! Good luck with practicing this in your next encounter!
It’s time to really consider confrontation as a gift for resolutions!
