Rooting Her Self-Confidence in God’s Unique Design for Your Girl

Has your daughter ever come to you feeling like the worst student, athlete, or friend in the world? Rather than try to reaffirm her by saying “you’ll get the hang of it!” or “you’re just as great as your friends!”, allow space for her emotions.  

It’s not to say that she should embody these inferior feelings, but rather, acknowledge them, react to how they make her feel, and grow in her self-confidence. I’ve heard it said that confidence isn’t simply feeling good about yourself, but rather, confidence is self-trust.  

God gave each of us a unique set of features, abilities, and emotions. When we allow space to feel our truest feelings, we allow emotional intelligence to flourish, and we deepen the lasting, lifelong self-confidence in our girls.
