Am I worthy? Am I good enough?

Almost everyone asks themselves this question at some point. And it seems once you get stuck in this pattern of thinking, it can be hard to get out. The problem is, you have placed your self-worth outside of yourself.
I’ve heard things like “you’ll never make it.” Over and over. “Quit now, give up.” There are people out there who do not wish for you to succeed in this life. They are constantly trying to break apart your successes so they can feel better about themselves. But this isn’t about them. It’s about how you let their words get inside your head and internalize it. It’s about how you turn their comments into a comment about your worth. And how you have a choice of not letting them affect you. People can flat out say that you aren’t good enough to your face, but it doesn’t have to affect the way you see yourself.
Your self-worth is not in your actions. It’s not in your failures or successes. It’s not outside of you. Speaking from experience, no matter how many awards you could win, you could still have a poor sense of self-worth. It’s about what’s inside you, telling you that you are worthy. It’s the thoughts in your head that tell yourself the truth. The truth is that you have a beautiful soul. That this is a piece of God. That YOU, reading this post, are worthy because God is giving you un-ending love. Has given you a human life, has given you many gifts. Has given you the whole world! How could you consider yourself un-worthy? You are good enough for simply being here. You don’t need to be the best at something. You don’t need to impress people. Tell yourself “Dear soul, I am perfect. God created me the way that I am. May I be thankful each day. I don’t need anyone else to tell me. I don’t need anyone else’s approval because I have Yours.”  

It’s not an easy process to overcome and it usually doesn’t happen in one day. It takes time to change your thinking and establish self-confidence so that no matter what someone tells you, you know it’s not true and that you are worthy of having your dreams come true. You are worthy of love, peace and happiness. You are worthy of having a good life.
Gold is still gold, no matter what you throw at it.
