My journey has has never been the easiest ! I was never really felt like I “fit in” if you know me now I am not up on the latest trends ( literally I’m in leggings and hoodies all day),and I don’t care how my hair looks. For conversation starters I know nothing about politics, I’m scared to watch the news (it gives me bad dreams) I don’t know the titles to any songs, artist, actors or movies unless it’s on the Hallmark channel. With all of this it’s always be hard to shoot the breeze with people. Don’t get me wrong if a friend has a hard time or needs a point of view I am your go to person but to sit back and chill I am always the 3rd wheel feeling left out and lost. But I would never show my confusion I would put on a fake smile or laugh and pray no one asked me a question.To this day I still do this and I don’t know why…. I bring this up because when I’m in these situations I’m uncomfortable in my own skin. With my kids I don’t want them to ever put themselves in situations they can not be themself. But in reality people are mean and they make fun of you if you
Don’t know things or act a certain way. I can’t tell you how much I am laughed at or looked at side ways when I may say I don’t know things. I have now gotten to an age that I can shake it off. But as a Mama how do you teach that to your children?? As a Mama I am trying to figure all this out. I say always encourage them to speak there mind, have them embrace being different and instill in them things that is worth knowing as well as providing them with comebacks on what to say to rude and disrespectful people.
Confidence is one thing I lacked as a child and I feel like I still growing in this area to this day !! In the past I was mistreated by friends, boyfriends, teachers, bosses and coworkers. As a Mama confidence is something I HAVE to install in my children. This is so important beacause I think with confidence come self worth! And Mama you are WORTH MORE THEN GOLD! You are a Daughter of the KING!! Fitting is does not mean anything it’s about being true to who you are, regardless of what others think or feel about you or the type of Mama you are!!! Remember Mama even if your still dealing with your personal issues it is important to ask God to provide your children with everything that you are lacking and more! You can still push through and ask for Gods Grace!!!
