Something happened today that made me feel sad. Left out. Unimportant. Uncared for.
But I know that sentence needs rewriting …
Something happened and I felt sad. Left out. Unimportant. Uncared for.
The event didn’t cause my feelings. Events can’t do that.
I caused my feelings and then I blamed them on the event.
If I feel unimportant and uncared for, I’m the only one who can fix that. Recognizing that is a big step for me.
