Hi jcutler,you know,i keep building her up,but it's going to take a while for her to get a true perspective,i think.It's not that she has low
self-esteem as to her worth as a person-it's just that she thinks she's as plain as sand,and a bit overweight-but she looks FINE-i so wish she would
see that! And being a teenager,and the young guys these days,having been so brainwashed into thinking that only stick-thin girls are "hot",well
that's what she says.
This is what she told me,epitomised her prospects for having a boyfriend,this joke from FB:
Parents:You're so pretty!
Friends:You're so pretty!
Grandparents:You must have so many boyfriends,you're so pretty!
BOYS:"Eeeewwww-what IS that?!-poke it with a stick!
She is really smart,usually in the top 5 for her entire grade,she's great at hockey,she bakes like a pastry chef,she's funny,and
strong+sensible+kind+decent-and she's really strong physically too,she could propably punch an adult man light's out,which is always a handy
skill.She's not a nerd either,she's fun+outgoing in personality,she goes to concerts with her bestie,some parties, and socialises as much as we
allow her at this age-Just this one thing,insecurity about her looks.I know as her mom,to me she's beautiful of course,but she Really is a very
attractive girl-she does'nt have to stand back for anyone in that way.If only she would realise that!I make it my mission to try and help her
see+Believe this,but i have a ways to go yet
