During a Process Communication seminar, I realised something important regarding how to lead my life; and particularly my personal life. I have a Thinker base, with a Rebel phase with Promoter on my third floor. My days had to be loaded! After an exercise on psychological needs I remember that for the first time in my life I realised how l left no room for my family. The weekends were always loaded; twelve activities per day, keeping an eye on the watch in order to not lose any time. On Sundays evening I was quite satisfied; maybe I was the only one. Sartre said "hell is others" well for my family I was hell. No doubt. I had confused my needs with theirs. When I became aware of this, I said to myself "let's stop filling the void". Now I have changed, I am aware of my behaviour and have paid more attention to my family's needs. In the process I noticed that indeed their needs were not mine and I learned how to be more willing to attend to them. I do not say this was easy...
