How to Increase Confidence in Difficult Situations

It is so interesting that life goes on regardless of our situations. It has been two decades since our daughter, Jo-an, faced special challenges. Everyone I have spoken to, has asked me about her mental condition. I do not know how a mental state begins but I know that God does not want me to dwell on the unknown. We must look to the future because God has promised a future for each of us.

Whether you are a special-need person or someone who has experienced emotional pain, God can fix it because He knows all about you and He knows where it hurts the most.

My daughter Jo-an is doing quite well. When she gets dressed in the morning, I help her with her makeup and her outfits so she understands the importance of feeling good about herself.  This helps to improve self-esteem, confidence, and self-worthiness. I have seen what a big difference this has made on her life. I also believe in a great diet of chicken or fish with vegetables, a great smoothie to give her strength, and great supplements such as B vitamins and fish oil.

Whatever you do for your special-need loved one, make him/her feel confident and worthy of your love. God loves all of us, so we must extend that love to our loved one.
