Just in case nobody’s told you lately, but you ARE enough.
You’ve always been good enough. Sometimes we don’t realize that because we have been giving parts of ourselves to the wrong people.
There are people out there who will accept you, flaws and all. Those are the people you should keep close, the ones who love you unconditionally.
I used to constantly feel like I wasn’t good enough. In fact, I thought people hated me so much, I would bend over backwards for people who really wouldn’t do the same for me. I would drop everything to go help someone. I was giving people money I didn’t really have to give. I was giving the best parts of myself, my caring and compassion, to the wrong people who didn’t appreciate it. It wasn’t that I wasn’t good enough, I was just giving my all to the wrong people.
I have cut off and distanced myself from those people who have made me feel not good enough. I’ve learned that I shouldn’t have to desperately try to get people to accept me by giving my all and then some to them. Your worth shouldn’t come from whether or not people like you. There are so many people out there who know your worth.
