Here’s the thing. There’s a few things I have learned so far in my 21 years of life and some of them have been real hard to come to terms with. Some of them obviously being that you don’t always get what you want, Santa and the Easter Bunny aren’t real, that Justin Bieber is probably never going to love me, and lastly and most importantly was that there is nothing wrong with me. Yeah yeah I know it’s cheesy and it’s redundant but it’s true. There is nothing wrong with you or me and there nothing for us to be so upset at ourselves for.
You have to believe that you are capable of something or nothing you do is going to matter. You will not undo the feeling that you are not enough by trying to impress people or prove them wrong. If you have the mindset that you aren’t good enough or smart enough, etc. there is no amount of success or people to prove wrong that will take away that feeling if you don’t believe it yourself. Changing the way you think about yourself and what your capable of in life of has a crazy way of changing it. You can work hard and try to be better but doing all of that is not going to prove that you are worth your space in the world. You are the only one who gets to decide that. You will only take up as much space as you let yourself. If you spend your time feeling like a burden or feeling like you’re not capable of doing something big because you think that space is meant for someone else then that’s your decision. You will put yourself into a small box that gets kicked and shoved to the side. You decide how much space you take up, you decide how much your voice is worth and what you want to say with it. You will not be heard screaming from the inside of a small box. It isn’t up to the opinions or the thoughts of anyone else except you, only you. You will not be enough if all you are looking for is to be enough. If “enough” is what you are looking for you will never find it. All it is, is you comparing yourself to others, a battle no one can ever win.
You don’t need a ton of friends, a perfect family or have your life figured out to have something going for you. If you’re looking at those as a measure of worth then you’re looking in the wrong places. Your measure of worth comes from your mindset, your goals and your strength. It comes from having a positive heart when the world feels negative, from not letting people walk all over you when they have an opinion different than yours, not letting people with bad attitudes rain on your entire day, letting people say their opinions even when they’re different from yours, and not letting closed minded people affect you when they try to shut you down. Let those people live the life that their attitudes give them.
Today is a whole new day and you have the opportunity to turn it around just by deciding to do something, ANYTHING different than you have been doing before. You’d be surprised by how quickly all the small changes come together. You have to trust that something better is coming and it will. Trust your ideas, take a chance and if it doesn’t make you crazy for it then say no and try something else. The only waste of time would be to stay in that small box you put yourself in. The only thing that would be wrong would be to say no to the thing that you know would make a difference in your life. You can find as much light as you have found darkness if let yourself have enough power to find it.
