It’s not who you are that holds you back, it who you think you’re not.
Judging yourself is not the same as being honest with yourself. Don't sell yourself short! You are capable of great things. And don't ever let someone else make you feel like you're not good enough. If they can't see how amazing you are, then they're the one who’s not good enough for you. Their approval is not needed.
Searching this morning for something to write about I came across this and this made me think of my special girl and how she is feeling like a failure at this time in her life.
This morning I received a text that she sent to me last night in which she says she feels pathetic because she has no job, no qualifications, she doesn't even have a resume and doesn't know how to go about writing one that will make people want to hire her for a job.
I don't know what to say or do to make her feel better about herself, is there anything I can say, in some ways I feel that this is something she has to do for herself my words sound empty and pointless.
How does one help someone feel better about themselves?
If you know tell me please, since all my words of support fall on deaf ears and leave me feeling sad and terrible for not being able to help.
I know that a person has to be responsible for their own happiness and self-worth but when a person is really beating themselves up about all the things they can't do how does a love one help.
I really don't expect any answers from anyone I am just saying how I feel, how as here mum I hate hearing and seeing her so down and feeling like a pathetic failure which I do not think she is. I can say to the cows come home that she is not these things but I can't make her believe me.
