“Once I was pregnant with my daughter I used to wish about all of the methods I hoped she wouldn’t be like me. Earlier than she was even born I had a complete checklist of MY insecurities I used to be able to push onto her as quickly as she got here into the world.
After which I met her, and he or she modified me. As a result of she was the whole lot that I wanted I may see in myself.
It took a very long time to be taught to like myself, and unlearn all of those self same beliefs I used to be prepared handy over to her. However I noticed that my most essential job was to not want away who she was, however to stop my limiting beliefs, and society’s expectations, from ever reaching her … and put together her for the day that they inevitably will.
And whereas she actually likes to be similar to me like right here when she acquired some honorary #glitterstripes, I attempt daily to be extra like her.”
