You are enough, you have power, you are brilliant, you have something to contribute, you have a gift that people require, and you are the catalyst for change. You are significant. Someone is drinking coffee from the favorite cup you gave them, someone heard a song on the radio that reminded them of you, someone read the book you recommended and jumped right in.
After a long day at work, someone smiled because they recalled the joke you told them. Because you complimented them, they love themselves a little bit more. Never believe that you don’t have any power. Your footprint, which you leave with every good deed, is irreversible. You matter because you are you.
You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval to be good enough. When someone rejects, abandons, or judges you, It isn’t actually about you, it’s about them and their insecurities, limitations, and needs. You don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings.
You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. You’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise. Committing suicide is not a solution to your problem. Don’t run away from your problem rather have the courage to solve it. Speak up and stand up. Take some time off but don’t quit your precious life.
Perhaps the world’s current difficulties are teaching us to be gentler, kinder, more giving, and loving to one another. Perhaps it is instilling in you the need to develop spiritually or to value your friends and family more.“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you encounter trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Allow perseverance to finish its work, so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” (Philippians 1:12-20).
