The other day, I sent out an email to my LinkedIn connections. This was an email written from my heart about a very difficult time in my life and how that experience motivated and inspired me to make a positive difference in the lives of others. It's the experience that put me on my path to integrative coaching and I felt the email was a powerful one.
I received messages and emails thanking me for writing it and for sending it to them... that reading it had helped them and/or inspired them. But I also received emails from people who said some very negative things... telling me what a miserable person they think me to be, a complainer, a wallower, asking me why I thought they needed to read such garbage.
I'll be honest with you... seeing those negative emails hurt. Yet, I am always reminded that my message is about overcoming pain, trauma, and sadness with hope, courage, and being inspired to keep growing, keep learning, and spreading love as far as one can. Yes, it hurts...
It's two days past Thanksgiving as I sit here at my desk and type this out and I'm feeling especially grateful for the relationship I have with my father.

In my case though... that sentiment could not be further from the truth.
My father never wanted children but finally relented to my mother's incessant begging. I was the first one born to them. One of the earliest memories I have of my father was waking up in the backseat of the neighbor's car, seeing my dad in the front passenger seat and hearing him tell me that he was taking me away from my mother and that we would go back in a week or so to get my little brother. I was 5 and had just been kidnapped in the middle of the night after my mother had filed for divorce.
There was a very nasty custody battle...
