No one can make you feel inferior without your consent
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
I’ve been feeling incredibly empowered lately. I am taking control over my fears by tackling them head-on, cleaning house so to speak, and saying goodbye to people who have been toxic in my life. I am reading books that encourage my inner strength and finally starting to apply the lessons I’m learning! I used to be afraid to tell people what I was truly thinking for fear that they would judge me or even turn their back’s on me. Even silly things like sharing my opinion I would only do with someone that I felt unconditional love from. I think becoming a mommy has released a sense of self confidence in me that comes from deep within all of us. It’s already there, we just need to dig deep to find its sometimes. The thing is, it’s not just about me anymore, I have this little person who is looking to me for guidance, love and support, so I want to do everything possible to create a positive and loving environment for him. Someone can not make me feel inferior without my consent. What does that mean to me? It means that someone can say or believe whatever they want, but I know the truth and at the end of the day that’s all that matters. I can allow hurtful words or actions to affect me or I can choose to let them roll off my back. I want to empower myself and be an example for my son to always rise above and take the highroad. I had a conversation with my husband where he reminded me of that and it resonated in a deep way. Someone cannot make us feel inferior without our consent. It reminds me of the saying we heard as children. “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” I think it’s important to instill this knowledge in our youth and help create a sense of self-confidence that is already within them. Let’s nourish that part of our children and help them be self sufficient and confident tiny humans. I want Lennox to feel empowered now, not for him to figure it out when he becomes a Daddy. I’m not saying I did not have self-confidence before becoming a mom, I’m just saying I have honed in more and more on who I am, and I’m letting my heart guide me vs. feeling pressured by others. I just want to live from a loving place and exude love. That’s all. When we come from our heart and love each other, we can’t go wrong! Have a wonderful, beautiful day!
