My daughter

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

We should all know ourselves so well! [but use spell check- I didn't correct any of her typos;-) ]

This is copied from my just turned 17 year old daughter's myspace profile about herself:

I figured out why i'm here. My foundation has built itself up on science and history. Every single belief I have is not 'just because...' I've learned everything through the hardest lessons. Along with encountering people who have no self control. Every belief I have has effected me to get a pretty good grasp of trust. I went from believing in bad luck to knowing that I have a beautiful gift. What people fail to relieze is that we are not invinsible, as long as you're a human being you can lose control. That we all connect in some way shape or form. And we are all under the same bright, yellow sun. I listen, comprehend, and understand things easily. I enjoy the complexity of things. As well as diversity. I'm trying to be nor selfless. The older have a greater understanding of the way I envision things.
Honestly, it's all about the quality. The quality of everything.

Relationships: So, I'm not like any other teenage girl. I honestly and sincerely do not want a boyfriend...or girlfriend(haha). I'm happy I'm single. Really, I just would enjoy a good guy friend. So don't try to date me, because you're just going to waste your time because i'm not interested. All I really need are the friends I have already. The whole "boyfriend-girlfriend" thing just complicates and eventually, at my age, time will just drag on.
"You do not need to be loved, not at the cost of yourself. The single relationship that is truly central and crucial in a life is the relationship to the self. Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never lose."

    Wow your daughter really has her act together. I wish more 17 your old girls could have that way of thinking. You have clearly done a wonderful job raising her.

    That's very impressive. My daughter is 16, and they seem to be alot alike. Jessica's myspace profile is similar. (Only she does want a boyfriend... hahaha). She is just trying to figure out who she is and where she is going and where she fits in, and after all that she's been through, I think she is well on the way.

    Congratulations on having such a "wise beyond her years" daughter. You are a lucky mother!

    Rachel's a great kid! She turned 17 on Aug 16th.
    Nothing has come easy to her, where her brother and sister, I often joke, could sleep with a textbook under their pillow and wake up knowing all the answers. She just keeps plugging away - working twice as hard to get half as far, but never quitting.
    She feels hurts more than most too. And so wants nothing more than to be a nurse- helping others to feel better.
    Her commitment and confidence inspire me, the me that wonders what others think as they see me walk by even now and was 10 times more self-conscious in high school.

    If I was 17 (and even now) I think your daughter would be an awesome friend to have.

    You have a wise girl! Mine is younger, but can't understand why her friends are all boy crazy. She knows they are all too young for that. I hope she still feels like your daughter in a few years.
