+Kelly Rowe shared this inspirational message with us this morning on Google+ and I wanted to share it with y'all because it has so much truth to it. "Girls compete with each other; Women empower one another" Author unknown
My friend has two darling daughters 9 & 15 years old. I watch them for her occasionally because she is a traveling RN in the Air Force. Her job has made it so they have moved around and done some home schooling. Her teenage daughter has been in our local high school for this entire year and I have been helping them out so they can stay at the same school. She is finding it hard to make friends here in school because she is very quiet and shy and the girls are very competitive. I have been talking with her and trying to be supportive and go to her school events, inspire her by saying once school gets out the world is a different place. She will still deal with competitiveness and lots of drama if she plans to go off to college because these young ladies are still trying to find themselves as well; but once you make it through all that women are very different. We make friends because we have similar interests, because you ask your neighbor for help in an emergency to pick up your daughters from school one day and stay great friends from there on out; because you share a coupon with someone in line at the grocery store.... Trying to tell a girl who is extremely unhappy at school and having difficulties coping with it; that it does get better is pretty cliché. Do any of you have any tips of how I can help her to feel more confident about herself and help her to "fit in" or make friends? I try to talk to her and support her, listen to what her concerns are, I'm trying to find her strong points so that I can bring some confidence out and show her how to use it but she is so quiet and self kept that it makes it difficult.
I have always been out spoken, opened my mouth before my brain processes it, and out going enough that I make friends everyday. I'm not afraid to say I don't know how to do this can you help me? I'm constantly on other peoples blogs and profiles watching videos and reading on how to DIY or how to fix the things I already buggered up. I'm new at all this and I'm trying to make sure to give credit where credit is due. Thanks for joining me again today. Don't forget to send me a message with your address in it! I'm not telling who the first 12 are, you will just have to share with us on my blog if you receive a lovely card from me for Valentine's Day. Until next time....God Bless
