Learn to value positive feelings, too
“‘Mom, I don't care what the other kids think, I'll wear what I want.’ I accepted and admired my child for her great courage. And I continue to do so every day. I cannot and will not protect her from what is nothing less than her own self.”
Personal report by Susanne K.
Even though it may take some time, maybe even a few years, positive thoughts and feelings are of course part of every process. Because if you accept your child as they are with all the different facets of their personality, it will always end well. Feelings of joy that your child is now doing much better, is suddenly much more self-confident, feelings of gratitude that your child keeps confiding in you with very intimate and personal things, should not be forgotten. Be aware of these feelings and nurture them. It is important to be proud of your child, who wants to show their true self to the world with strength and courage.
