I've been hinting at doing this a time or two on here but never really have done it, so no time like the present I guess. I keep hearing the same things from some of you and if you were here with me in person, we'd definitely do some role playing. Actually, it's quite fun......and can be extremely hard and rolfing. Kinda come away feeling like your insides have been scrubbed with a wire pad! Old patterns need scrubbing though. It's the only way to break them loose from the sides!

It's harder to do like this but I'd like to give it a try. I'd especially like to invite TooScared to do this and then after her I'd like to invite Firefly. Of course if TooScared is "too scared" to do this right now, I understand. But I'd like to really encourage her to try.... No one here but us ducks anyways, so who cares!!! Like we all don't quack and waddle when we walk, eh?

How we can do this is.......I'll start off as a person in your life TS, that is an authority figure. Right now I'll play your mom. I may not get this right, but it really doesn't matter, I'll get close enough to who she is, so don't worry about it being a perfect fit as to who she is. Just go with and respond to "this character" that I am being here. I'll try to come as close to her as possible.

But what I'd like for "you" to do is just respond like you would normally. Not like you think I "want" you to respond.....not that at all. I want you to put down on paper what you'd normally say and better yet - put down what the voices in your head say...okay? Let's be real, real honest here.

We'll go back and forth for awhile and then we'll stop and access things, okay? Are you up for this? If so, then I'll begin.

This scares the sh** out of me but I will try. I am just not sure if I can respond. What if you think I am saying something that is not healthy? Then do you stop the role play or do you let it get worse?

Ladeska, I will do this because I do trust you. But if you want firefly to go first then I am ok with it. I just don't want to chicken out - and given the opportunity that may happen. I promise that I will try though.

Thanks SFB.

Okie Dokie, just about ready, getting into costume!! Hey, the Leave it to Beaver Mom has got Nothin' on me, okay? Got the starched little dress on and that red lipstick and the tight little hairdo. Took me 45 minutes to get my hair into a bun, but I did it! (sort of...)

I'm ready when you are!! Yes, yes, I know both of you are breaking out in hives over there.... calm down, breathe...I'll go easy on you, I promise. (smile) Trust...me.

Okay TS, if you are up for it, then I am. Just didn't want to pressure you into it. Firefly is ready any old time. So let's you and I do this, okay? And yes, I know it scares you......but some things in life are surprising.....maybe this is a package to be opened that doesn't have anything scary in it at all. Maybe you will find tools in there instead.

Ready?

Who starts this role playing? do I have to give you a situation or do you know enough about me that you could maybe start this going?

I'll start and just going to create a imaginary situation here, going off what I know of you and your mom. Even if I'm not quite on the mark, just try and respond to what was said here. I may miss some things, not get them accurate but it's not so much about that as it is - about the interaction...

I'm going to date this back when you were in high school, if that's okay...

You've come in from school....and I'm going to give you the name Terry, okay?

You've said Hello to me and I've ignored you. Basically made a noise but not a real hello... then I say..

"Terry, so why didn't you get a better grade on that term paper yesterday? Your father was real upset about that.
I think he wants to talk to you about it. He said you could have done better than that and just didn't think you gave it 100%."

Well, it's not for me to say, I mean it's what your father says about it. I'm sure you could have done better than a B+. Didn't someone else in class get an A?

(remember, TS....you can say here - what you are thinking now, not what you would have just said back then. We can do anything we want to "now"..)

(smile) That a girl!

"Well, just wait until your Dad gets home, I'm sure you won't like what he has to say! Just trying to keep peace here. While you're at it can you help me with dinner here. I've been slaving here all afternoon trying to get ready for the weekend."

Why can't you help me talk to Dad? Do you not believe that I studied either?

Mom, I have homework to do so that I can keep my grades up. What do you need help with the most in the kitchen? Maybe I can help with something that won't take much time and then get to my books. I do love you mom.

Well, you know good and well I can't tell your father much. What he says goes, you know that. And I just know you could do better, that's all.

I just need you to do what needs doing in here. My back is killing me, I've got a horrible headache, all I do is race around trying to do for you guys and what do I get for it? I'm sure you can spare a little time doing the dishes over here, that wouldn't be so hard would it?

I am not going to let Dad make me feel bad on this one Mom. I know that I did my best and that is good enough for me. I wish you both would believe in me and trust my judgement, but I have to believe in myself even if you don't.

I will do the dishes for you Mom because I live in this house too, but I would prefer you asking for my help and not demanding it.

(this is so totally not me that I feel like I am being disrespectful)

This is flipping me right out here. I think we'd better stop this for today, TS and see what SC has to say about all this. This isn't right. I just can't imagine HOW that could happen. I wrote that reply in paren. to you TS and it shows up with "your name" on it. And then the numbers with my name on it??? I didn't do that!!
