Loving Yourself

I can't do this...
therefore I will never be good at this.

You probably heard the saying: "sometimes, we are our toughest coach."

It stinks when we deceit ourselves to think that we are not good enough.

You and I are both worthy, beautiful, and smart. 

We are not perfect. 

We are also not dumb, ugly, lonely, etc.

God loves us soooooo much. Don't forget that!

Have Faith.

Today, I was beating myself up about a research paper that I am in the midst of writing. English classes do not click for me, and at times it is SO frustrating. You know, focusing in the wrongs at the start of a task cannot lead you to the finish line.  I've learned.

"God doesn't require that you succeed, he only requires that you try." -Mother Teresa
I once went to my teacher's office to let him know that I had low confidence in writing papers. In my last paper, my teacher gave me hope by writing this note next to my grade:

Try and try again. Pray.
and you know what? At times like these, when you feel like you are beating yourself up, talk with friends and family. They are God's gift to you, and will make your feel so loved.
Live life. 
Lastly, remember to pass it on. We all faced trials, and it is necessary to remind others that they are amazing and we have faith in them to succeed.

  1. Love you, and love this post. I have had similar experiences when writing my papers for Spanish. Thankfully I also had a teacher who encouraged me and believed in me. Teachers like that are such blessings.
