Why do humans have a tendency to look at ourselves through the wrong kind of lens, through these negative, self defeating lenses? Why do we create perceptions of who we are and what we can offer based on a vision of ourselves that is often centred around our faults!
Too often I hear the people around me refer to themselves as not being “good enough”. This deeply saddens me and frustrates me because I believe we are all good enough.
You are good enough! Look at yourself in the mirror right now and tell yourself that you are good enough! Get up from your tablet, phone, computer and tell yourself you are good enough.
You have a heart that beats and feels without question because if mine does so does yours.
You are good enough because that beating heart gives you the ability to love someone in the most profound way. Really that is all that matters. Your past does not matter, your faults do not matter – the only thing that matters is the here and now.
The next time you allow for your mistakes to control how motivated you feel, remember … the honest-to-good people, the ones who aren’t ONLY social acquaintances, the ones who will inspire you and challenge you and uplift you, those people will never see you through the lens of your mistakes. You are the only person who will do that. Those people see you through real living colour life.
The person who admires you will love you for you who are, mistakes included. Burdens and baggage and insecurity, guess what none of that phases the heart. It only phases the mind.
The person you think you “aren’t good enough” for will accept in your heart and nothing else; that is what defines you in their eyes. You are good enough to them because you have within you this radiant ability to love. You are good enough to them because you have within you this overwhelming ability to feel.
Stop using your mind to persuade yourself otherwise and give all of the burden, all of the doubt, all of the judgment to your heart, for it is powerful.
Your heart is more beautiful than your past. Your heart is greater than your doubt. Your heart can carry your baggage on its back and will still run circles around the freckles in the eyes of the person you admire. Your heart is stronger than your mistakes, and it is bigger than your negativity. Your heart is amazing. It is resilient. It will never, ever change, or spoil, or lose its ability to give all of itself to someone. It is capable of love, no matter what, and that is all that someone will see within you – that is all that someone will fall in love in.
Give it freely, for it is good enough
