“If I was a fly on the wall at your house, what would I see?”
Now, think about how you might answer this question. I’m not talking about what you cook for dinner. But I am interested in what I – or someone else who didn’t know you – might learn about what your house is like from an emotional perspective. For example:
• Is everybody getting along or is the air poisoned by constant tension?
• Does everybody treat each other with respect and kindness?
• Can everybody express their feelings to each other and know they will be heard?
Why do I think it is important to ask these questions? Your home is a safe space. I know we hear that term a lot these days. But when it comes to your home, it’s important for everybody to be able to look forward to being there, to know that you can expect to be cared for, that you can be yourself, that you are surrounded by people who want the best for you. That’s what home is all about, right?
I recently posted an article on this topic. Here’s a link:
What’s the atmosphere like at your house? What do you do to try to keep things positive at your house? What gets in the way of having a health atmosphere? Any ideas to share? Need some help?
