A lot of people say it's cathartic to cook, and I'm like, 'How is it cathartic washing all these dishes?'
I don't think anything predated Christians.
I think it's harder to forgive ourselves for mistakes that we made because we keep dwelling on it. We want to know how it affects other people, if they liked us for it, if they didn't like us. I think we stress over it, we replay it in our mind. It becomes an old tape that years later we continue to play it in our mind.
My priority is my son and my husband, and I have a lot of spinning plates, so I try to make sure they're not one of them.
