Formation of Coping Skills – Exercise #34 (Coping With Insensitivity)

Imagination. Use it much? Use yours enough?

Wouldn’t it be something if there was a book written for everything?

Here’s one for How To Behave.

Here’s a Caregiver’s Manual for Men.

Turns out: “IT WON’T MAKE MUCH DIFFERENCE WHEN THEY CAN’T FOLLOW THE GODDAMN INSDTRUCTIONS.”

Insensitivity is like taking the Lord’s Name in vain.

Now imagine a good spin on whatever you’re dealing with. Take the above for example. If for years and years the caregiver has not acknowledged or recognized God’s hand in life, is this actually a good sign (misguided and misdirected, yes, but perhaps the beginning of a new dialogue)?

Imagine that no matter how badly off things are for you, someone else has it worse–and yet they’re willing to feel your pain and share a cup of kindness.

Imagine that no recovery is possible until you reach rock bottom. How much more appealing should diversity become when you hit it?

What if someone else is being insensitive to you? Imagine you are the most highly qualified person  to righgt this wrong. Would you do it?
