I keep a couple go-to thoughts in my pockets when the the "stinging darts pierce" my chest.; those darts thrown at us by others, especially annoying when they come from one of our adult children. Sometimes it is just a sting; sometimes it pierces my heart. I feel the emotion and then I pull out of my pocket a default thought that brings me back to how I want to feel. I share 15 of them, but I most often use these three: Things never stay the same; People that hurt others are hurting; What would love do. Write your own; find out which of the thoughts I offer resonate for you. Prepare yourself against those "stinging darts".
