    so many of us struggle to
    Have you ever wondered "Why did I
    do that?" or "Why can't I just control
    my behavior?" Others may judge our
    reactions and think, "What's wrong       EBOOK:
    with that person?" When questioning
    our emotions, it's easy to place the
    blame on ourselves; holding
    ourselves and those around us to an      US
    impossible standard. It's time we
    started asking a different question.

    groundbreaking and profound shift

    from asking “What’s wrong with
    you?” to “What happened to you?”
                                           If you're a new parent, you'll be discovering this for yourself. Your baby is beyond
                                           adorable, but some of the learning curves are probably steeper than you'd expected.
