Am I not pretty enough?

Am I not skinny enough?

Am I not good enough?

What is wrong with me…these three things use to keep going on repeat in my head all day long every single day.

These thoughts have actually kept me in bed for days before. I have been so depressed it's just kept me in my bed thinking I wasn't good enough.

Okay, I am going to give some background...I have been single for eight years. Well, these feelings just started two years ago...these feelings all started when I fell for a guy two years ago. At first, things were amazing and I felt great because things were going so well, then it all took an awful turn. Things no longer were going as well as I had hoped they would. We then just stopped talking and it left me wondering why...was I not enough? Then all these things started to pop into my head making me feel like complete crap.

I have spent hours crying to my friends about how god awful I feel about myself! They all tell me how amazing of a person I am and I just didn't see it. I have recently worked on myself and I feel so much better! I have worked so hard to get to the point of being able to say.

I pretty enough?

I don't have to be super skinny to be amazing!

I am good enough?

I have learned that no one else's opinion matters. The only one that matters is my own. I don't have to change for anyone but myself.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
