Don't Let A Bad Day Define You

You do matter. Your past doesn't define you, what you do on the weekend doesn't define you. How OTHER people see you doesn't define you. What people say doesn't define you either. Getting upset is a natural thing. People even become depressed which is defined as A mental health disorder characterized by persistently depressed mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily life. People also get anxiety which is defined as is your body's natural response to stress. It's a feeling of fear or apprehension about what's to come. These are just a couple of things that might trigger something that might cause people to feel like they don't matter.

I am not saying that those are the ONLY things, but just two factors that come into play.

Things can trigger feeling like you don't matter. Have you ever not been invited to someone where your friends are going and they don't bring you along? I have personally and it made me upset because I put these thoughts into my brain about how they don't care about me right? They don't care enough to invite me somewhere, where they are going. Let me tell you, they were with people I didn't even know but just because I let my thoughts take over my mind I sat there being upset with myself because I let myself believe that.

YOUR GRADES DO NOT DEFINE YOU!

I don't care what anyone says. Yes, grades are important if you are in school but you can have a bad semester. I thought that my grades were what defined me and I let that control my life then all of a sudden, I started to slip up. I got one bad grade on an exam and it dropped my grade and that when I hit the lowest I have ever been in my life. I started skipping classes and not studying, heck I went out every-day for almost a week. I did all that because I felt worthless and that I wasn't going to get anywhere in life because of my one bad grade, well one turned into almost all of them and things started to get taken away from me and I felt like I had to leave, I wanted to drop out because I didn't matter. Who wants someone who had bad grades?

Let me tell you guys, a bad grade happens, friends hang out with other people.

You won't get invited to everything and that's okay. That relationship might not work out and that's okay. I am a strong believer that God makes everything happen for a reason. I had a bad semester and he showed me that even when I was at my lowest, feeling like complete dirt he pulled me out and showed me my worth. I mattered in lives, and that grades and other people don't define who I am. You are important, you do matter in this world. You can have bad days, everyone does, but never forget that you matter to someone.
