SIBLING RIVALRY … The Fights Go On, But Here’s What We May Not Have Known

From generation to generation to generation, the battles go on, but here’s some great tips for parents from the author on how to teach the children to resolve not just their conflicts, but also to empower siblings to resolve conflicts with other people throughout their lives … something we can learn at any time when we parent ourselves later in life to become more mature adults.
Of course, as the eldest child and eldest granddaughter who left home the day I turned sixteen, I’m still working on conflict resolutions skills I did not develop because my care-taking skills were being developed by a lot of babysitting 😊
However, what has helped is learning to value … respect other people, regardless of any other factors, creating peace in one’s heart at the very least. Another benefit of increasing one’s “Respect Level” is developing the skills to establish good boundaries, resolve differences, agree to disagree, and if need be to walk away gracefully, inside and out. … to “live and let live.”
Most importantly, with the new understanding that sibling rivalry is normal, to be expected, has a valid purpose, and with wisdom, and can be managed well, my heart is lightened by forgiveness, hope, and best wishes for all. Hope yours is too.
Thanks New York Times and Ms. Dell’Antonia. Ms. Dell’Antonia writes frequently about parenthood.

“The COURAGE TO BE YOURSELF” by E.E. Cummings

Definitely takes courage and much more when your personality type falls within 3-5% of the American population. That information helped me put the pieces of me back together again, though as with putting any puzzle together, I tried to fit into a few places I didn’t belong, even tried to force myself to fit, but that hurts the piece trying to fit and the others around the incorrect piece. Also takes time, patience, and persistence, but at least now I know I am on the right path. Thing is too, when you are starting over, there is only place to go … up!

Good luck to you. Hope this shared post lightens your heart too.

Connecting Respect … “Mental Illness is Not …”

NO ONE is perfect because we are all human. We each have our challenges though some of our challenges are more visible than others.

I admire everyone who gets up everyday and does their best with that they believe.

And I salute those who bravely examine their beliefs, discard what no longer fits them, plus explores, discovers, and embraces new beliefs to further develop his or her unique self and potential.

PERSONALLY, my unique challenge has been, even with my many successes, has been overcoming experiences and feelings that made me feel small, insignificant, worthless, and a failure because I did not know and therefore did not respect and love myself unconditionally … but thank God, that has changed! Wishing the same for everyone!

Wonderful all. I will just add that regarding donating time versus money, as I have experienced, both are rewarding and needed, as are kind, encouraging, motivating words. Thank you for yours!
