When insecurities rear their ugly heads
I sat through the two hour class, feeling ill at ease. All of this internal dissidence led me to question myself, second guess many of my parenting skills (much of which, is successful and healthy), and feel, well, insecure. Fortunately, (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), I have had lots of practice with my insecurities, so after a bit of space during the drive home, I was able to put it in perspective. I reminded myself, not to compare and in the words of Stuart Smalley, I thought, “I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and, doggonit, people like me!” And, I felt a bit better. Am I cured of these insecurities? – absolutely NOT! I know they will rear their ugly heads again, just hopefully not at next week’s class.
