Today, I'm telling you about the documentary that left me in tears—no, that's the understatement of the century—I was ugly crying under the covers. A few weeks ago, I watched a documentary on Fred Rogers (popularly known as Mr. Rogers) and it moved me to my core. In this episode, I'll break down why it made me cry, sure, but, way more importantly, the questions it made me ask myself about my parenting and the way I'm living my life. Are we enough just as we are or are we supposed to improve ourselves? Listen to the episode to hear where I fall on this issue.
