PS-Don't bother saying anything about the cigarette, we ALL already know it's bad! :)
Maybe when I say, “You’re not going to wear THAT are you? We should go shopping. I would love to help you pick out some cute clothes”
What I really mean is…you’re so beautiful, I wish you wore clothes that reflected your personality and your inner beauty, clothes that make you feel good about yourself! Don’t hide behind your clothes. Maybe you don’t know how pretty you are, but your beauty (inside AND out) takes my breath away
Maybe when the baby is crying and I say, “You got this, Sis. You can do it. You don’t need to hand the baby to Gamma. Just keep rocking her”
What I really mean is…you’re an awesome Mom. I wish you realized what a good job you’re doing with that precious baby. I wish you trusted yourself just a little bit more. That baby trusts you, she believes in you! You’re Momma!! She adores you. Just love her to the best of the best of your ability. Don’t doubt yourself so much. That baby has one of the best mommys in the world. Lucky her!
Maybe when I say, “Are you SERIOUS!?!”
What I really mean is…Talk to me, Sis! I have NO idea why you are doing things that way. It is completely different than the way I do things. I’m frustrated, I’m aggravated! Please don’t do things that way. All I see for you on that path is heartbreak and disappointment. It hurts me to see you upset and I’m afraid that will happen, if you do things this way.
Maybe when I say, “Psshh, I wouldn’t put up with half that crap from my husband/boyfriend”
What I mean is…You deserve to be treated better than that. Realize your self-worth, my love, demand respect-cause you deserve it! You cannot gain respect from others if you do not respect yourself! You’re smart, beautiful, and caring! Do not let ANYONE tell you different!
Maybe when I say, “Hey, I’ll post this letter to my sisters on the internet!”
What I really mean is…I love you, I adore you, I believe in you! Maybe it’s time I finally said-I’M PROUD OF YOU! Believe in yourself, cause I believe in you! (And everyone knows, I’m usually not wrong J)
