Remember Who You Are and What You Stand For

As my children entered their teens and began going out unsupervised and on dates, as they left the house I would lightheartedly say to them, “Remember who you are and what you stand for.”  I wish I had words of wisdom for them to take along on their dates, but that’s what I came up with. Now that I have begun reaching out socially, I would love somebody to drop some advice in my ear as I leave the house. Am I doing the right thing? What are the social norms now? Why do I feel so weird about it? Do I look OK?Lots of questions. A man I met at the singles dance last week gave me some good advice: “Take it slow.” I like that.
I was talking to my oldest son last night and told him about my plans to go to more social events and he was delighted that I am getting out. After talking and laughing about it, and encouraging me, he finally said he had some advice for me. And it was, “Remember who you are and what you stand for.”  Honestly, now that I am on the receiving end, that’s pretty good advice.
