When my children were small I seemed to have much more confidence. Now I seem to be lacking in confidence as I see my children become more confident by the bucket loads. I am immensely proud of how confident they have become, which can make me feel less than confident sometimes.
Not having an abundance of confidence has meant that the little confidence I had is now hanging in the balance, but only for now. As adults we tend to cover up all or most of our insecurities, but we still continue to carry our children’s worries. Even if we’re struggling we will still look to help them.
It’s not to say children won’t have their own struggles even with the confidence they have, but it’s the confidence that matters and it’s that will hopefully bring about a resolve to their struggles.
I wrote a resume of my life living with Cerebral Palsy when I first set the site up, including some of my struggles and although emotionally I do very well, i.e. sorting out problems and dealing with immediate issues, my struggles seem to have manifested themselves into how I cope physically.
Maybe it’s that I am more aware now, but I will continue to work on the confidence thing. My site’s been a great help.
