Since I've become a mom and thinking back during my childhood I understand a little more why my mom would tell me not to worry about certain things or would let me know how proud she was of me even though I might have been struggling with something and beating myself up because of it.
Sometimes it's hard to make the change that we need to make and we struggle with it but having someone remind us that we're doing good in the midst of our struggle helps encourage us so much.
Words have such a great impact, the words that we speak to ourself can either help or hinder us.
You may feel like nothing will change in your life and that you aren't strong enough or relevant enough to bring a change in your life but hang in there. Sometimes what we need is hope, seeing someone else make it through something that we're struggling with helps spark that hope.
That is so true!!!! I think I can count on one hand the times my mom told me she was proud of me. She was more prone to chastising, "Second place? Why did you only come 2nd?" etc. I know as a mom I'll do my best to encourage my kids and show them love as much as possible. Hopefully I don't smother or baby them . 😆
Sandra may be known as an ice burg at her job but at home she is a committed granddaughter who is trying to rescue her verbally abusive grandfather from his toxic behavior but she's struggling to maintain her own sanity. His toxic behavior gets worse when she makes three new friends: her coworker, his father and their little dog Chamski.
