The next time you feel fear in your body or your mind, ask yourself "What am I avoiding right now?" Connect to the voice of low self-worth that doesn't believe in its competence or lovability, and give it the assurance that it's safe. That it's competent. That it's loved. That it's enough. That you're enough.
Mothers are always watching what other parents do.

But so many times we are unsure of ourselves because we love our kids so much that we doubt what we do and want to get parenting just right.
