You Are Valuable
Updated: Feb 13, 2019
Have you ever felt like you were not good enough? Like you truly did not belong in the family that God placed you in, your workplace and/or the environment that you are situated in? This is a truly a genuine feeling that many of us have encountered or still come across in life. It has been the root for the developed of depression, suicidal thoughts and suicidal actions, low self-esteem and the application of degrading self in many people’s lives.
To be honest with you, I’ve had those days many times. Sometimes, I wouldn’t get out of bed because I didn’t feel like I belonged I often felt like I was a mistake and that my worth wasn't really something that should considered. I was persuaded that I wasn’t important and it ripped me apart mentally and emotionally. I wasn’t able to go a day without thinking about myself in a negative manner. Yet after many years of damage, I finally realized that I was not helping myself at all. I was basically contributing to my own destruction and I was my own setback. That’s when I understood that the underestimation of self is a result of one not knowing his or her true value.
This is the reality that many of us regularly face on daily basis. Essentially, I came to the conclusion that all the negative thoughts I had about myself were lies that infiltrated my mind and became my reality for a very long time (since my childhood). Maybe today you are in a similar situation and you don’t view yourself as appreciated, desired or wanted. But I’m here to remind you as a survivor that you are indeed appreciated, desired and wanted.
In conclusion I would like to end today's blog with a this; the truth about you is not based on the number of likes that you get on social media nor is it based on insignificant affirmations that are simply virtual and not real. And this is why so many people are not walking in their purpose because of the lack of self-awareness. It’s imperative that we shift our way of thinking and realize that God created us in His image and likeness which validates the fact that we are fearfully and wonderfully.
