“Don’t Allow Someone To Make You Feel Like You’re Not Good Enough
You Are Enough. With all your flaws, with all your bruises, with all your scars, with all your faults, you are enough. It took me years to believe this within myself. I always felt that I wasn’t smart enough, pretty enough, I thought that my worth came from outside affection, and outside opinions. Feeling this way, in relationships I took any and everything, that was bad for me. I tolerated abuse of all kinds, to the point that I was broken. I had no fight, and no will to even make it better. I didn’t know my worth, and that eventually diminished to feeling like nothing.
I’ve learned that no one is going to love you the way you love yourself. And that no matter how low you feel, and how broken you may be. You can always pick yourself up and put the pieces back together. One thing I know for sure is that love doesn’t hurt you. Love molds you, keeps you, and puts you back together. Never allow someone to make love a weapon to use against you. Never let them say I love you, and cheat on you. Never let them say I love you, and allow them to hit you. And never allow them to make you feel less than you are. We were all created in our own image, in our own special way. No one is you and that makes who you are amazing.
For me I had to build confidence again, I had to walk away from anything that didn’t serve my happiness. I had to learn to love me again. I had to look at me from the inside and outside. I had to fix who I was internally, and then believe it externally. All the people in the world can tell you you’re beautiful. But if you don’t believe it within yourself, it doesn’t mean anything. Know who you are, and never let anyone tell you different. Living in this superficial time, I know its hard to keep up with the Kardashian’s and models. Be yourself authentically. Know that with all your stretch marks, and discoloration, with no makeup on, you are beautiful, just the way you are.
