More freedom, more approval

When we're tempted to say "no," and we have that little internal conversation about "Why not?" that can be healing.

When I'm there, I think of my mom saying no, and then I picture her having been open enough to say yes more, and I picture my childhood self having a thrill of freedom and approval. There was some freedom, and some approval, but I can imagine up a lot more of it, and shower it on my children.
