Believe In Yourself

May 2, 2017 12:12pm CST
I have had my nieces and nephew staying with me for a littlw over a month now for a visit. It has been such a blast! The oldest is about to be 12 and is turning into a young lady. She never believes in herself and the amazing person she is. It frustrates me so badly. I want her to see herself as the smart, talentes, beautiful, sweet young lady she is, so..... Since I own my own craft business I made her this sign for her brand new room her parents are surprising her with. It says: You are braver then you believe, stronger then you seem and smarter then you think. She loves it! I'm so glad because the whole time doing it I was so worried she wouldn't like it!

I wish she wasn't so much like me... The good qualities she should embrace and I dont know why she doesn't but now that I'm grown I like who I have become and I hope one day she will feel the same about herself.

You are a wonderful person. Your daughter has someone terrific to emulate. I am sure she will grow up and learn to believe in herself.

I'm so happy she loves it. Girls that age go through such an awkward stage. I'm sure that your sign will make a difference. Welcome to myLot!!!!!

@LovingMyBabies I thought so. I remember reading posts about your older children visiting their aunt.

@tattoomama You're absolutely right.If you believe in yourself, you do what your creator wants you to do.You don't believe in God if you don't believe in yourself.
