You Are Enough
I want you to know that you should be concerned about being the best you that you can possibly be because that will help you to go farther and be more fulfilled in the long term, but there is something that you have got to come to terms with in the short term if you ever want to get anywhere. You have to be able to understand that you are enough regardless of what anybody else says. There will always be people that will try to bring you down but you have to be willing to ignore what the haters are going to say if you want to have enough strength to press on.
If you are constantly trying to prove to yourself that you are enough then you will always be too busy to press forward and become the best version of yourself. You have to understand that you are enough simply because you were created enough. Your value was set in stone from the very second you were created. Your value was never something that you could earn by having a certain number of followers on instagram or a certain number of friends on facebook and it was never something that you could lose by not having enough money in your bank account. Your value is not up for debate. The fact that you are enough cannot be changed. No amount of money or lack of followers can change that one way or the other. Your worth is solid and non-negotiable.
When people try to tell you that you can’t do something because you are not enough or because they are trying to define you by your past then all you should feel is sorry for them, because they are probably feeling defined by their past and that is why they feel they have to project that so hard on you. They feel that they are not enough and the fact that you are trying to be better is just further proof that they have not come any farther since they started to believe that they were not enough. So instead of working hard to become more than they were they decide it would be easier to just knock you down a couple of pegs. The saddest part is that they clearly do not understand what you now know. Self worth is not up for debate. Your worth and value comes from the moment you are born and it is not something that changes with the times. It just is what it is. You are enough, and that is the simple end of the story. You have got to come to accept that and accept yourself so then you can press forward and be the best version of yourself. Having love for yourself starts with accepting that you are enough.
It all starts with you.
