Wrote this micro-fiction as a prequel to my popular older micro-fiction blog post ‘In Another Lifetime’ (If you’d like to go back and read that, you’ll find it in the ‘Fiction’ category on my blog menu).
Dear Daughter, I will be your guide. I’ll help you learn from my mistakes. I’ll also let you make your own mistakes, but with caution, because mistakes are also important. I promise I’ll try to first learn to love myself so that I can then teach you to love yourself.I’ll encourage you to be confident of yourself, but never arrogant. The beauty is in being sure of yourself, not in trying to prove that you are. Always do the right thing. Be you. I promise you, I’ll always be your biggest cheerleader.
