Not Good Enough
When you compare yourself with those around you, do you feel like you’re not good enough, that you somehow don’t measure up, and there’s no way you ever could? Well guess what?! STOP IT! You are unique. You can’t compare yourself to others, because you’re not them. They are not you.
You are who you are meant to be. You were created and made to be just the way you are. You might say, “But I can’t do this, and I don’t like this about myself, I hate my hair or my body or whatever it is that you hate about yourself.” Again, the inner most being of who you are and what makes you, YOU, is more than enough.
I don’t mean to disregard how you feel, because your feelings are very important. But I’m going to remind you that YOU are more than enough. There will never be a more amazing you. Don’t let the negative and nasty drag you down, rise up, stand straight, and look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I AM MORE THAN ENOUGH.”
“Everyone has inside them a piece of good news. The good news is you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is.” ~ Anne Frank

We all know the catch phrase, “I love you to the moon and back.” Well, being the literal person that I am I did a little research. Did you know that it’s 238, 855 miles to the moon from Earth? It would take you 3 days to get to the moon. So, in theory when using that phrase, you would have to say it every six days, right?! (I know I’m weird, I’m OK with it. These are the things I think about sometimes)
The words that we use have power and meaning. Saying, “I love you”, and putting that into action takes effort on our part. It’s easy to love the loveable. Not so much when someone is yelling, screaming or calling us names. In my opinion, it’s the not so lovable ones that need our love the most. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of yelling back and defending ourselves. I wonder what would happen if we chose to love regardless of how we are “treated”.
I am a strong-willed woman. I am very competitive and I hate to lose. And I like to always have the LAST WORD. I struggle with loving difficult people and I’m not proud of it, but I do. We all have these people in our lives. Whether we work with them or live with them; whether they are good friends or family. Maybe they are people we’ve known for a long time or maybe we just met them.
So, how do we deal with this? For me, sometimes, love is silent. When I want to speak (really, shout back and be just as nasty back) I choose to say nothing. Sometimes, the people who are around us that are “un-loveable” could be going through something awful and just can’t control themselves. They could be having a really bad day that just turns into a week, a month or longer.
Be patient, even if you’re not feeling love for them. We are surrounded by the people that we are supposed to be around for a reason. Share the love that you have with all of them. The love you give will change the atmosphere whatever you do!
