In this episode, I unpack the default behavior for so many of us when life throws us a curveball – sitting in blame and judgment. I explain why this is the case for me too and what I’m learning to replace these negative emotions with something more helpful. I share some personal stories to explain all of this in more detail and ways to see an accident or mistake as an opportunity for real learning. I also discuss the best way to ensure that you’re raising good people rather than creepy sh!theads.
