I write about the Bad Tapes occasionally in other places – anyone else have those? The tapes that play over and over in your mind when you’re trying to do something or accomplish something?
Those Bad Tapes are what keep me from really Going For It. I’ve learned to tune them out somewhat. I landed this dream job (for me, anyway) by tuning them out and replacing them with better thoughts. I have a great husband who has helped me see who I really am. I’m on better terms with my parents, who seem to have forgotten how they shaped me, and how much I’ve had to overcome. I forgive them, I do, and I think they’re relieved for that. I hope my father can do some work on his own; I know my mother has.
I’m still a work in progress.
