Hi Friends and Readers,
I like to write about so many different things, and struggle with staying only on the fostering and Reactive Attachment Disorder topics. If you tune in here and don’t see anything about either, go straight to the Resources tab and click on one of those, because there is help there.
I was thinking today about a good friend who wore a particular cologne that nauseated me when I was near her. She was a favorite friend, but that aroma was too much for me, and one day I finally told her that she was making me sick! Sounds like a terrible thing to say, but it was either say it, or avoid her.
There are other “aromas” besides actual smells that we project. Angry aromas, complaining aromas, ungrateful aromas… What is coming out of us can be felt in many ways by those around us.
Some people think that it’s okay to be this way because they are only around kids, and not adults, but children are highly affected by the emotions and attitudes that we project. They count. They have aroma-sensors, too!
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and self-control. Now that’s a list of good smells! Love my readers, Nealie
