I think I am a pretty secure and confident person – most of the time. Yes I sometimes think people are speaking about me or saying something negative, when generally they aren’t. But I also have my moments when I think they are saying something good. I am reasonably confident with my body, my intelligence and feel I can hold a conversation.
But there is one area where I am hugely insecure – Baby OL. What the heck makes me think I can be a parent or at least a good parent??? I have successfully managed to get through the first year with a friendly, loving and happy little girl but how do I ensure that she stays that way. Parenting is a minefield. There are so many things that influence a person’s life and most seem quite inconsequential at the time.
How are the choices I make and the things I do and say going to affect her later in life? I don’t want to screw this up.
