Day 3561: Does this make sense?

Last week in one of my therapy groups, we noticed how some members were asking “does this make sense?” when they were making complete sense.

We tried to make sense of this and discussed how people can doubt their ability to make sense when they’ve gotten messages from the culture and/or their families that they make less sense than others.

Does this make sense? That so many people receive undermining messages like that?

An older woman in the group shared how she has learned to stop asking “does this make sense?” when she is speaking, which made sense to the other members.

Does this make sense that I’m sharing these thoughts and images with you today?

To make sense of this reading: My INR is finally back where it needs to be!

Does this makes sense that “Bring Your Kids to Work Day” would be on a WEEKEND?

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “does this make sense?”

It always makes sense for me to end my blog posts with thanks to all who try to make sense of them, including you!

  1. There are a number of tentative variations of this. Know what I mean?

  2. I like that I think about your words and photos and my life makes more sense, Ann.

  3. Thanks for explaining your INR device. At first glance, I thought it was a thermometer informing you that your room was 32° c. (It looks like one that I have.) Unusually hot for this time of year.

    Joan seems to be in her element.

    Ann, here you go

  5. I understand that many of us want reassurance that what we’re saying makes sense. It also makes sense to me that a lot of people enjoy sharing the “TED Talk Gorilla”, who I hope doesn’t violate your “No lectures” rule.

  6. This post reminded me of a much earlier one of my post s on the topic of friendship. I’ve attached a link for my way to comment on the topic.

  7. I love kind people.

  8. I’m so glad your numbers are in the right zone, Ann. You take good care of yourself, so it DOES make sense that they would improve. 🙂

  9. Hah! I missed your blog yesterday, but I made cookies for Nt’l Homemade Cookie Day anyway. So glad to have my activity affirmed. That makes sense to me!
