This is True for Me…

Published August 2, 2021 by Nan Mykel

Shared views and histories: I’m not sure just how to structure it, but this is my first attempt.

Two questions I’ll ask myself and share. You can too, or not…

What verbal message did I receive as a child about ethics and who told me?

Have I internalized that message as a goal, modified it or rejected it?

MY RESPONSES: When I asked my grandmother if we hated Hitler, she said, “We don’t hate him–we just hate his ways.”

Whenever I recall her words I get a good warm feeling, probably because I love her for it. And yes, as far as I know I have internalized it. With the single exception of holding an emotional grudge against someone who has insulted or discounted me, I have never used my position in the work force to harm anyone.

Anyone else want to share? Sorry if I’m not structuring this the right way.
