Hi from your Surrogate Asian Father.
As you know, if there’s one thing I understand, it’s guilt. See, I was raised by the best. (And if you’re Asian, Indian, Jewish, or basically if you have any ethnic parents or relatives, you know what I mean.)
Even if you don’t, we ALL know what guilt feels like. Sometimes it’s this nebulous feeling of things we “should” be doing…exacerbated by our parents or relatives. On the other hand, sometimes WE’RE the ones making ourselves feel guilty more than anyone else!
On tomorrow’s live webcast, I’ll be covering guilt — including some strategies to conquer it.
But I want to know the BEST guilt trip you’ve ever encountered. Was it…
- Your parents saying, “Don’t you ever put me in an old folks’ home”?
- Your uncle saying, “Look at Jon — he has the best grades in his whole school”
- You realizing you hate your major in college, but feeling guilty about letting someone down if you switched?
Those are simple examples. I know with a group of weirdos like you, you have even crazier ones. Leave a comment with your best examples of guilt trips and I’ll feature the best tomorrow.
This is a one-time only presentation and it will not be recorded.
Enjoy the comments and I’ll talk to you tomorrow.
