Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot
I’m not good enough.
I’m cheating the prompt a little today, because the above statements were things I said to myself and thought about myself that stuck with me for a long time. It took teaching my daughter that she can do whatever she wants if she sets her mind to it, and that she’s most definitely good enough, to learn those things for myself.
Why is it that we women are so damn prone to doubt ourselves and our own talents? Why can’t we all be a little more like Pippi Longstocking, convinced in our own ability?
But I learned along with my daughter. Now we both know we’re good enough.
