Video Podcast: Robyn needs to take a compliment!


Is anyone else learning to take a compliment? I’ve been trying to say THANK YOU when someone says something nice. My knee jerk response is to try to convince them they’re wrong…like, I’m NOT as looking as cute as they say I am (just look at the stain on my shirt!), I’m NOT as fit as they think I am (black just slims me…in actuality I’m not exercising enough), I’m NOT as funny or talented or pretty or fill in the blank. But, I’m trying to act my way into right thinking. So, let me just say before the fact, “Thank you so much. I’m glad you think our latest video podcast is enjoyable, relate-able, and relevant. You’re not so bad yourself.”

Cathleen and I also talk about one of the most famous plays about a woman’s power in marriage, A Doll’s House, by Henrik Ibsen. We discuss the power of manipulation and wonder if it’s ever possible to have a manipulation-free relationship.

And we finally join the rest of the blogosphere and weigh in on the Tiger Mother. Me-ow.
