Emotional awareness is perhaps the most little spoken of trait we need in leaders. They must respond to the tone of the team otherwise the team will not respond to them. Of course, without compassion emotional awareness is probably worthless!
It is surprising the things that can really hurt us and how long would we take to heal. I have yet to meet someone who has not been hurt and who is immune to being hurt. I guess that hurt goes with living life, ambition, and love.
When you see someone you haven't seen in years do you avoid them and hope they recognise you and come say hi? Ignore them hoping they don't come talk to you? Or something else entirely?

I want you to show love, not offer sacrifices. I want you to know me more than I want burnt offerings.

Some days parenting is hard! There doesn't seem to be any reason or action you can take to put things in a better now positive space.
