    What is in your mind Johnnie when you say that we are in a sense all broken?

    I think we’re all imperfect and flawed (at least I am) but I don’t think that makes me ‘broken’ – as if I was once in a better condition and am in need of fixing. I think my flawed state is the natural one – I’m working on accepting that!

    Hi Stuart, good question. And thanks for watching, your feedback is always appreciated!

    Funnily enough, I was thinking afterwards that perhaps it was the wrong choice of word. I put the “in a sense” to soften it as I guess I sensed it was an edgy choice. “Broken” can easily sound pejorative, in line with your argument. Perhaps I was being a bit melodramatic in the moment. Maybe I wanted to somehow touch on the fact that in distress, I see my failings as worse than flaws, and to acknowledge that other humans in pain do so too.

    Fortunately, In a parallel universe, I made the same video replacing “broken” with “flawed, sometimes frustrated and hurting”. I checked and you hadn’t commented in that universe so fingers crossed it was a wiser choice 🙂

      Lol! I’m glad I commented in this universe; if I hadn’t you wouldn’t have known that I’d watched the video at all. If we can extend to ourselves the amusement and kindness that we can sometimes extend to our work and to our clients, that would be lovely.

      I really like these brief videos – do please keep them coming.
