“If you’re convinced you’re not good enough, you’ll have a hard time letting someone into your life that thinks you are.”
– Steven Rosas
It’s not you. It’s your perspective. It’s in the way you care about what other people think and say about you. It’s in you letting society dictate the kind of person you should be and therefore forfeiting your own unique identity. It’s in looking at yourself as a stranger instead of becoming one and realizing that your relationship with yourself is a lifelong journey of coming to terms with your flaws and imperfections, seeing the good and beautiful things too, and loving all of that.
Before you change yourself, change your perspective. Allow yourself the ability to see you the way other people might see you: perfectly okay.
I just want you to know that right now, at this very moment in time, nothing is wrong with you. So shut your thoughts up for a moment of not being good enough, or pretty enough, or thin enough, or simply enough because you’re wrong. Shut everything out and listen to your inner self– the life that radiates from you, the feelings that get you up and make you brave, and the loves you’ve made but were too afraid to say. Nobody else can be you. You are unique and one in the zillions of people out there. Someday, somebody’s going to realize that. How lucky he is to have you in his life. Sure, you have plenty to improve and this is nothing to be ashamed of but I just want you to know that right now, wherever you are and whoever you may be contains a perfection in itself and in the hands of time. You’re who you’re meant to be today. And tomorrow, when you initiate change and be better than before, you’ll fulfill your destiny.
