When I was a little girl, I had so much confidence. Somewhere along the line, I lost it. For far too long. Really, it’s sad I lost it at all. So many girls do. I look at my kids- all three of them, so FULL of confidence in their ability to learn, master and succeed at anything and everything, and, especially with my girls, I pray that they don’t lose that confidence. Somewhere along the line, I lost my confidence, as did so many other girls (now women)– not sure how or why, but it happened. It happens all the time. So when I was asked to share about the Girls Unstoppable Event October 5, I had to agree. For two main reasons (and a million more):
Because these two need to be taught about self-esteem. As do all of the other girls in our world. We need to show them what self-confidence looks like so they learn it and see it and live it. It’s not just my two girls- it’s all of our girls. There’s too many like me who floundered for a time (and longer) and lost that self-confidence and self-esteem.
Because at some point, I’m really good at (fillintheblank) turned into I’m not good at, I can’t, I wish I, and other thoughts equally as non-confident happen. For most girls.
