What is the craziest thing you ever did to fit in? Would you even dare tell someone out loud? As I have watched my daughters navigate junior high and high school, and listened to their stories, I have reflected on this more than once. The world out there makes it tougher every day. Social media can bring down the most popular girl from her place in the sun in a DAY – All of the messaging out there tells our girls that they are not enough just as they are. In the end, all they want to do is belong. They just don’t realize that fitting in is not belonging.
Share this message with them. It may not make them “feel” any better about some of their social situations, but it is sure to give them a bit of new perspective.
