Shame and Regret
The first line of the email from a fellow parent was “Shame on you”.
There it was right at the start of a new day, an ugly email first thing in the morning.
Typically, I’m a parent who stays out of drama. But on this day, I could envision myself zinging this person with the perfect comeback. I mentally weighed all the many reasons I was perfectly justified in coming back at this person attacking me.
Something in my spirit didn’t feel any better after I mentally walked through my response. I imagined myself feeling the shame of exploding on this woman and I didn’t like how I felt. I didn’t want shame to be my reality.
Though it wasn’t easy and much processing was needed, I was able to sip my shame of having a bad reaction so I didn’t have to guzzle the regret.
