“You’re so stupid!” “You’re never going to achieve that, you should just give up!” “I can’t believe you did that, you ruined everything!” Would you let your best friend, spouse or children speak to you like this? Of course not! Then, why on earth do we talk to ourselves like this?!?

I love costumes and love to watch my 5 year old morph into character, right now he is Optimus Prime (who he claims is the most powerful of “all”). He is constantly evaluating which character is the most powerful, who could win against the other, and who has the best skills. This I love. What I don’t love is the crappy candy, the Stitch like crazy he gets after eating all that sugar, and the fact that he will sell our car for a single miniature size bar.
