This letter is to anyone who has felt like they aren't enough- that maybe you felt unworthy of love or good things. Or if you feel guilty for your happiness, pleasure, or anything at all...
I have been in your place before. I have felt unworthy of good things- like I was supposed to only endure challenges or that something was inauthentic if it were easy or made me happy. I still occasionally have feelings of guilt, of self-loathing, of complete separation from the good and the bad. Sometimes these thoughts come from comparison, or times where I am not particularly busy, or at completely random moments that make me feel incredibly isolated and make me judge my every move with scrutiny.
This makes me overanalyze, overthink, and creates more stress. It digs me into an even deeper hole, and at the same time alludes me even further from the truth.
Because I am worthy, you are, and we all are. We are worthy of immense love, of goodness and of miracles, of happy chances and of bright days. We are enough. All we can do is go day by day, trying our best, pushing forward and yearning for those precious small moments one at a time.
It can be hard to look at the greater picture and see how all your hard work has paid off. It can be difficult to be kind to yourself. It can be hard to put yourself first at times. But it is so important to know your worth and fight for it.
It is important to handle yourself with as much care as you give everyone else. It is important to allow yourself wonderful things and just be who you are because you are worthy of happiness and the good. I at times still fall back to this thinking- that being busy is all that signifies my worth or how productive to society I am- or even that I have to work at something just to be valued or noticed. But that's not the case, you are always worthy, you don't owe anyone shit, you are still enough even if you make mistakes, and you deserve love,- endless amounts of it.
You are worthy. You are enough - and never forget that.
