NaBloPoMo – BlogHer – March 2014

How would you rate your self-confidence? When is it at its lowest? When is it at its highest?


How would I rate my self-confidence? On a scale of 1 – 10, I would say that my self-confidence is mostly a 7. I have been slowly working on my self-confidence; trying to bring it up.

My self-confidence is at its lowest, when my oldest daughter tells me that I was a bad mother, and am a bad grandmother; which is quite often. I don’t know why she does this? Perhaps, to make herself feel better about herself? Or just to bring me back down when she feels I have gained some self-confidence? I don’t know why, but it does send me spiraling down the scale to zero self-confidence, and it takes a while to build it back up again.

Luckily, these episodes with my oldest daughter, only come around about every three to four months. That gives me time to have a mini breakdown, and then build myself back up the self-confidence scale, a bit.

Ironically, my self-confidence is at its highest when my grandchildren are around. My sole focus is on them and I forget about everything else. My heart melts when I see them smile and run to me or hold out their arms to me; I can see the love in their faces and know that everything is right in my world. At these times, my self-confidence would rate close to a perfect 10.

Children are our future. They hold our hearts, minds, and souls in their precious little hands. It is funny how the young can boost self-confidence in the old. That’s how it works for me, anyway.

  1. Shame on her, with no basis for that kind of remark. If she really feel that way why does she leave her children with you? Maybe you should have a nice long talk with her and explain how you feel.
