Being Comfortable With Your Emotions

Posted on: March 30, 2010

                              
               It is important for you to be comfortable
               enough with your emotions to be open with
               your emotions.  This isn’t always easy
               because many times mothers aren’t
               comfortable with their emotions either. If
               this occurs, mothers should take the
               following steps to help their daughter.
              
               First, mothers should create an
               environment in which girls are comfortable
               with expressing their innermost emotions.
               One way that you could do this as a parent is
               to raise your girls in an environment where
               she feels that her emotions are important and
               need not be repressed or suppressed. 
              
               Second, in order to ensure that your
               daughter develops a healthy amount of self-
               esteem, you must keep the focus on who she
               is and what she needs, and not what you
               need from her. Far too many girls are raised
               to be their parents’ therapists and have the
               burden of coping with adult concerns before
               their own egos have fully developed.
              
               This is very detrimental to a daughter’s
               psychological development. As mother’s, we
               have to take care and help our daughters, but
               not vice versa. Their needs should be taken
               into consideration but not yours.
              
               So, are you comfortable with your
               emotions? If you aren’t, chances you will be
               bringing up a daughter that will also not be
               comfortable with expressing her emotions.
               And this could have a negative impact on
               her development and self-esteem.
