NightLight: See As God Sees
The following question from an emailer hit straight to my core, and I think it applies to moms and non-moms alike. ————–
I grew up in a very dysfunctional environment, to say the least. I was able to rise above and remove myself from the situation and am now married with a beautiful little boy and consider my life quite normal. Even so, I have some lasting depression and self-image issues that I’m trying to work through.
I think I was running away from my past for so long that I do not know how to just be content in life. When I had my little boy, who is now 2 years old, depression and self doubt started creeping in slowly, and at times it is overwhelming. I question everything I do as a parent and always wonder if I am good enough for my child and if he will love me or hate me, as I feel everyone does.
My question is this: how do I deal with these insecurities as a parent and overcome, how do I love myself, how do I work on seeing myself as God see’s me?
How do you deal with insecurities?
