🧡 raising the future 🧡
Most of us have been through life events that have affected us deeply. We may not always understand how these events have impacted us.
We may exhibit negative behavior toward a situation similar to the one which shaped us. These behaviors are often brought on by moments of stress, or situations similar to past events that we have experienced. We must be conscious, to be aware that these behaviors are present.
Becoming a parent committed me to a journey of being the best person that I can. In order to grow, I must acknowledge where my thoughts, emotions, and behaviors come from.
If I cannot understand my own behavior, how can I understand my daughter’s? If I cannot understand my daughter, how can I effectively communicate with her? If I cannot understand or communicate with her, how can I expect to teach her?
I believe that learning and modeling this consciousness is vital in helping my daughter become an understanding and thoughtful adult. I hope that she grows into a person who can learn how her experiences affect her as they occur instead of years later, like me.
In my journey to become a better parent for my daughter, I became a better person – for myself, and this process is life long. ✨
