A strange confession.

Dear Self 

The way I respond to the world makes no sense.

Take for example my recent response to teaching. 

I have been teaching a lot lately. The Alexander Technique, authentic communication skills, living with purpose. I’ve been teaching one person or a small group or even a very large group.

And it has been going very well. I’m enjoying it and the feedback I get indicates people are getting some good things out of their experiences with me.

How do I respond to doing something I really enjoy and getting some good feedback? 

I start to doubt my ability as a teacher. I wonder about what I have to offer and whether it is really of any value.

I know that this makes no sense. That’s the thing about our habitual responses they are habitual not logical.

I wonder if this is how I respond to success? 

Self, if you have any idea what this is all about…well, don’t leave me in the dark.
