I Punish Myself Part 3

Posted Aug 24 2008 8:19pm
Hubby raised an amazing point today.



He asked what role me receiving spankings as a child plays in me punishing myself as an adult.



Yeah, my husband is quite the thinker.



You know what, I think he's on to something.



Why do parents spank? To teach a child right/ wrong, appropriate/ inappropriate behavior.



Why do I punish? To teach myself right/ wrong, appropriate/ inappropriate behavior.



But in the same way that I'm not learning from my punishment, did I learn as a child or did I simply alter my behavior to prevent future punishments?



Ok, this is heavy stuff.



Am I over thinking?



I'd love to hear your thoughts.



Gratitude Moment: Loving that each day brings a deeper understanding of me.
