You are good enough. You have always been good enough. And you will always be good enough.
You deserve everything that you want and you deserve to be happy. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise.
You are good enough for that program you want to get into. You are good enough for that job you want. You are good enough for that girl you think about asking out. You are good enough for that boy you see on the way to class. You are good enough to make your parents proud. You are good enough to live the life you want.
Way too often people feel inadequate. People feel like they don’t deserve the things they want, but you do. You 100 percent do.
You are not a perfect person by any means. You are flawed. You make mistakes on a daily basis. You think, “How could anyone ever want to be with me?” “I’m not good enough,” or, “I don’t deserve them.” But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Sometime in your life someone said something to make you believe that you aren’t magical. That you aren’t a phenomenal human being. And now that is what you see when you look in the mirror. You see someone who will never compare, that can never compete. But the thing is, you don’t have to. Life isn’t a competition. Life isn’t about letting things or people slip away because “they could do better than me.” Chase what you want. And if you aren’t meant to have it, you won’t catch it.
God made you. He thought you up in His head before you were ever made. He thought the world needed you. Not someone like you, but you. The most beautiful, perfect, good, pure being thought you were necessary. He made you to live your life to its full potential; to be all you can be. And He made you exactly how He wants you. He thinks you are beautiful. He thinks you are worth having in this world. God thinks that you are good enough.
It’s time to stop thinking that you aren’t worthy for the things in this world. It’s time to start going after them before they get away. It’s time to realize that you are more than good enough for them.
You are more than good enough.
You are imperfect. You don’t have all of the answers. You mess up. You fail God every day. But the beautiful thing is, He loves you anyway. And if you are good enough for the king of kings to love you, you are plenty good enough for any person. DON’T EVER THINK YOU AREN’T. There isn’t a person in this world that you “aren’t good enough” for. There isn’t a person in this world that is “better than you.”
So stop just flirting with that girl, and ask her out. Stop just looking at that job application, and apply. Stop hiding who you are, and let yourself shine. Go after what you want.
