Sure, it’s easy for me to say. Your child has a chronic medical condition that makes self-management quite difficult. How on earth is s/he going to become an independent adult? How can I tell you to have no fear?
Because fear doesn’t serve you or your child. It doesn’t build towards success, or open possibility. Rebecca Rosen says, “Fear drives us straight into roadblocks. It escalates conflict, pain and sadness, and it manifests scarcity.”
So take a deep breath, and begin to release the fear of all the possible ways that your child might not succeed. Better yet, with your next inhale, breathe in any possibility you can imagine. Hold onto that vision, and use it to breathe life into your child’s future.
