Be Enough For Yourself
I just want you guys to know that I am about to go off about this topic. This topic is something that has been weighing heavy on my heart for a while now and it is such a core issue that we all struggle with from time to time. So many of our issues are caused by the fact that we just do not think that we are enough. For so many reasons a lot of us feel like we are not enough. I feel this way too sometimes. Maybe it is because of how somebody treated you. Maybe it is because of how somebody did not appreciate you. Maybe it is because somebody fired you. Maybe it is because of something really harsh and out of line that somebody said to you one time. Maybe it is because of the place you are in your life that you do not want to be and for whatever reason you feel like you deserve it.
Let me start by telling you this: You might not be in control of what people give you in your life but you are always in control of what you accept. What I need you to understand right now is that you were created as enough. I know that that might sound like some motivational crap, but it is the honest truth of the matter. You were created enough from the moment you showed up here. There is nothing about being enough that you have to earn so it doesn’t even make sense to think that you could not be enough in your life. When people try to make you believe that you are not enough then you should take heart in the fact that your worth is not up for debate. Your worth is not something that you can negotiate or change or give away. That worth was set from the very beginning of your life. You were born with it. You were born enough. So when people try to bring you down or make you believe that you are not enough, stop believing them. Stop believing that you could make a mistake, big or small, that would cause you to lose your worth. You can’t. You just do not have that power.
So stop allowing yourself to accept these kinds of lies from other people. If someone is going to be toxic towards you then you cannot control that, but what you can control is how much you keep them in your life. If someone is keeping you from believing that you are enough then stop accepting that. It is not evil or selfish to look out for yourself and cut people off if they are constantly using you as a punching bag and making you feel like less than you are. You are enough, through and through. Stop letting people in your life that are going to convince you otherwise.
It all starts with you.
