Over this past week of school vacation my daughter has been wearing quite the “interesting” choice of clothing.  She has worn such things as pants that are way too short for her, stripes with plaid, and other such mis-matched type choices or clothing selections that she has clearly grown out of.  One day I finally called her out on her outfit choices, wondering why anyone would want to wear pants that are too short for them baffled me.

The answer my daughter gave me regarding her outfit choices was;

I don’t care what other people say, I don’t care what other people think. You taught me to not worry about what others think of me and I want to be different. I don’t want to look or be like anyone else.

If I say tears of pride didn’t enter my eyes at that moment, I would be lying. My little girl who struggled for a bit with lower self esteem and issues on standing up for her own self is now showing signs of a high self esteem and confidence like no other. All of our positive quotes shared, positive stories read {and written/published}, all of that time I spent showing her that I didn’t care what others thought about me … is finally starting to shine through and as much as those high water pants drive me crazy, I just smile because she is my girl and I couldn’t be more proud of her!

    Good for her! That’s an awesome story in more ways than one. My daughter struggles w/self-esteem, so I really appreciate the times when she is confident and can totally to relate to how proud/happy you must be.
