Made with the new Vulnerability kit from Scrapbooking from the Inside Out.
Journaling reads: It started with not wanting to have her picture taken. At 7 years old, Hailey would hide from the camera or put her hands in front of her face. I couldnít understand why until I recognized that she saw other women doing this. It began to dawn on me: What I think of me is what Hailey thinks of herself. Hailey has several important adult women in her life: her mom, myself, and her Aunt Dee, among others. I realize now what a huge impact we have on her self esteem. Iíve already heard Hailey criticize her own body and seen her conflicted attitudes about food. I am saddened to say that she sees us doing those very things. She is imitating us. I am deeply impressed with the fact that we are her role models. My self esteem needs to be high, not just for myself, but for her. Itís a huge responsibility, but I am committed to doing my best to inspire Haileyís confidence in herself.
