As a child being sexually and physically abused, I developed survival skills.I became adept at disassociation, internalizing, disappearing, isolating, and taking it if all else failed.These survival skills were my defenses.They allowed me to stay alive and, more importantly, they protected something within me that wanted to be a good person, that wanted to be a good father, and that wanted to be someone that mattered.
On the doughnut day, I held a meeting in the morning with my client to review a new product they were developing to identify patentable ideas.The meeting went very well and we finished an hour earlier than anticipated.As was custom for longer meetings, my admin ordered doughnuts and coffee for the meeting.
