I have found that there’s ONE thing that makes stepmommying 100% better.
It always works. It doesn’t require anyone else around you to change.
Want to know what it is?
It’s a firm belief that you are:
No matter what and just because you’re a human being.
Why does this work?
Because when your stepkid doesn’t listen to you, you’ll know their behavior is not a reflection of some inherent character flaw in you – because you are good, and worthy, and capable no matter what.
See, your feelings only get hurt when you BELIEVE the mean things people say or do to you – you make their words and actions mean you’re unworthy, unlovable, and unappreciated.
Believing upfront, everyday, that you’re good and worthy and capable is the antidote.
And you can just decide to believe “I’m good and worthy and capable.” Remind yourself of this everyday.
You will feel better once you start doing this. Guaranteed.
And, it’s like a virtuous cycle – the more you believe that you’re good and worthy and capable, the more you’ll start to notice positive changes in your stepfamily.
You’ll be approaching your family from a kinder, gentler, softer place – just because you know you’re good and worthy and capable.
You’ll be able to handle the ups and downs of your stepfamily life with grace and integrity and love – because you know that you’re good and worthy and capable.
Join me – I already know you’re good and worthy and capable no matter what.
