The most important thing I want you to take away from this is that you are most definitely, without a doubt, good enough.
I know there is a good chance you are rolling your eyes at that statement, and you may be muttering to yourself, “whatever” but mutter away because it’s true.
It’s tough being the girl who cares too much. It’s tough being the girl who feels too much. It’s tough being the girl who just wants to please… who would do anything for those she cares about.
I get it. It can quickly take a toll on a person.
You’re the girl that overthinks everything. The one who worries about everyone. You’re the girl who loves with her whole heart and nothing less. You jump in with no hesitations and often share more than you should. You’re also the girl who’s had her heart broken. The one who at the end of the day begins to question and overanalyze everything.
You need to erase this idea that there is something wrong with you. Delete the notion that you’re unlovable, that you have some defective piece of you that stops someone from loving you.
You see… the problem was never you. It’s the people you openly gave your heart to, that couldn’t see your good intentions and only saw your mistakes. It’s the man who took a heart of gold and innocence, and tried to tarnish it. It’s the abandonment and abuse you’ve endured.
Hear me out – you are deserving of people who will lift you up, people who will help you believe in yourself, and people that will love you for YOU.
Stop comparing yourself to everyone else out there. You were born to be an individual. The things you see as flaws make you the wonderful person you are.
Stop looking at yourself in the mirror feeling disgusted and berating yourself. Stop criticizing all the things you hate about yourself. Focus on the good. Stop telling yourself that if that one person liked you, you would too. Stop telling yourself that if you lost a couple of pounds, everything would be better. Stop convincing yourself of reasons to not be worthy. You have to learn to love yourself.
Forget those who make you feel any less deserving of respect and love. Someone will love you for every little thing about you. Someone will accept your imperfections and see them for what they are. Love yourself. You are wonderful. You are beautiful. Your strengths outweigh your weaknesses. You are more than “good enough.” You are worthy. It’s time to start believing that.
