My daughter came into my room at 1:30am this morning, she said she felt pathetic because she let some boy break my trust. I told her that she needs to take responsibility for her actions.
She has very low self esteem, so I have decided that I’m going to write positive things on a bunch of paper and stick them on her wall. That way she will see them every day and see what I see in her.
This morning she came into my room and she still wasn’t feeling much better, so I told her that when she talks to her counsellor on Monday to talk to her about my ex and what happened, how she’s feeling and see if she has suggestions to help boost her self esteem in ways that I may not think of.
She uses the acronym H.O.P.E meaning hold on pain ends. I said that she should change it to H.O.S.E meaning hold on school ends. I told her again that the kids that put her down and say bad or mean things about her is because they have there own crap going on in their lives and they do it to make themselves feel tougher and better. Is it fair?? Of course not but it’s the way it is, she needs to ignore these people and know that in 5 years when she’s in college or university to become a teacher, chances are they have no future plans.
She does she wants to be a teacher, get married and depending on when you ask her she wants two or three kids. She has it all planned out as far as what she wants. I told her chances are that the kids putting her down don’t even have a future goal or plan.
I wish she could see herself through my eyes, which is kind of where plastering her wall comes in. They are going to be the things I see in her. Possibly a couple poems I wrote for her and some quotes.
