Does it not hurt when someone calls you ugly or says that you are not good enough? Even though these are just words but they are rather painful.
Whether you are in school, college, working or a mother of two, you can find such people everywhere who think that it’s their responsibility to constantly bring you down. They will do everything in their power to make you feel bad about yourself. You will try to ignore them and put a brave face forward. But, when you hear it enough times, there comes a weak moment and in this moment of weakness you actually start believing all of those hurtful and mean things. You begin to question yourself, “what if it’s true?” “Maybe it’s me.” “I think I’m not good enough.”
Well, you are not good enough and you will never be for certain people. They will always manage to find flaws in you.
You are either too dark or too pale. You are too fat or too skinny. You get asked to eat a salad or offered a sandwich accordingly. You are a tomboy or too girly. You are a flirt or too shy. You are a slut or a prude. You are too nice or you are a bitch. What is a girl supposed to do then? What is she supposed to be? Lock herself in a box and just die there when time comes? Believe me, people will criticize that too cause they are never satisfied with whatever you do or whoever you try to be.
You have two choices. Believe what people say about you or believe in yourself. Haven’t you heard that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder? You are beautiful and if anyone says otherwise then the problem lies within their eyes.
Yes, you are beautiful and yes, you are enough. Set up alarms if you have to or make flyers and stick them everywhere in your house. If this is what it’s going to take then so be it.
When you doubt yourself it gives others a chance to doubt you. You are already hurting deep inside and when someone else having nothing else to do points out your so called flaws, it hurts even more. And we don’t want that. YOU don’t want that.
This is not just about being strong. This is about believing in yourself because when you do, no one can bring you down no matter how hard they try.
Don’t feed lies to yourself. You are beautiful and you are enough. Period.
So the next time when someone says otherwise, then keep your head high, look that person in the eye and smile. Now this smile will be really powerful because it will be full of belief- a belief in yourself that you are enough.
With love ❤
