Day 3368: What’s wrong with you

Today’s blog title is brought to you by The Daily Bitch Calendar.

I’m smiling at that calendar now. Is that wrong?

As a therapist, I’ve heard many people ask the question “What’s wrong with me?” Often, I respond like this:

“What’s wrong with you? Nothing. And that’s the wrong question.”

Yesterday, I was feeling like something was wrong with me, as I took in so much of what was wrong with the world. I started focusing on the wrong in me and in others, including my husband Michael. After a rough day when so many things went wrong, we were sitting in silence at the dinner table. I didn’t want to say the wrong thing and make anything more wrong between us.

Finally. I said, “Michael?” He replied, “Yes, Ann?” And then I said something I used to think was wrong for a humble person to say:

“I’m awesome.”

Michael laughed and agreed and suddenly what was wrong was right again.

What’s wrong or right with my other images for today?

What’s wrong with you if you feel like goofing off on National Goof Off Day? Nothing.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “what’s wrong with you.”

What’s wrong with expressing gratitude to all who help me blog every day, including you?

  1. I see so much right in this post, Ann.

  2. Not even the doctor can tell me, but we’re working on it!

  3. Yes. You are awesome and you make me think and laugh!

  4. I LOVE your awesome story. Absolutely fantastic and funny turnaround. Thank you for sharing

  5. Debbie T

    I see Harley is reading your mail for you. Maybe you could lend him out to those who need some help going through their paperwork.

  6. People used to tell me there was something wrong with me because I’m left-handed, which only made me more proud to be a southpaw. And eventually the world embraced us lefties, so I think I was right all along.

  7. PS There is nothing wrong with you!

  8. I watched Senators haranguing the most qualified candidate for the Supreme Court ever with questions they knew were wrong, just raw meat for those they hope will vote for them. Her wise and measured responses encouraged me that the whole world hadn’t gone mad, just enough of it to be a danger to our democracy. The Senator from New Jersey, Corey Booker, spent his time accentuating the positive about Judge Brown Jackson, further encouraging me not to give up.

  9. when we see or feel something is wrong, we have to shake it up, with changes big or small. I love how you shook it up with your awesome declaration.

  10. You truly are awesome Ann. I’m glad you called yourself on it! 🙂
