I like to tell my only daughter that we all come in different shapes and sizes, colors and characters. Each one of us is special and we should cherish differences. I try to show her this in the way I speak about and treat other women. With all the negativity and judgement in the world, It’s important to to protect and cherish all that is unique about one another.
My little sister came home from school one day, years ago. She was in elementary school at the time, and it was the very beginning of the year. I saw that she looked tired and upset, so I asked what was wrong. She told me that she wasn’t in the cool kid’s group at school. That she was one of the weird ones…
My baby sister is the angel of the family. Her kindness and love for everyone has always touched me. So I couldn’t believe my ears that at such. young age, she was struggling to feel accepted for exactly who she is.
I remember trying to figure out what to say next. Trying to think about what my mom told me. Trying to remember those feelings, so I could comfort her. I was so angry it was hard to think. But I ended up just sharing how I felt about her. How good and selfless and beautiful she is. How those qualities make me proud of her.
I don’t think my speeches helped much that day, but I’ve always made an effort to voice my genuine appreciation for the great qualities in people around me. No matter our shape, size, color or character, we each have a place. The brand Enchanted Beauties make variety of clothes for a variety of different personalities and tastes. So you can teach your little ones that can always find the right fit.
