How can we get it through everyone’s head that they are worth it?
How can we make sure every person knows their worth?
How can we show the people who mean the most to us that they are enough?
These questions all seem so simple. It should be easy, right? Give them attention, hug them, listen to them, laugh and cry with them, sing and dance with them, share stories and memories with them, advise them, and love them.
But it’s not always that easy. Here’s a letter to the person who feels like they aren’t good enough.
First of all, thank you. Thank you for being in my life and making a difference. Thank you for holding on when you feel like giving up. Thank you for teaching me things I didn’t know I needed to learn. Thank you for loving me when you didn’t even want to love yourself.
I want you to know that my life would not be nearly the same without you.
I pray that you find peace and comfort in knowing that there are so many people who love you and care about you. People come into our lives for a reason, whether we choose for that to happen or not, and sometimes we neglect to be thankful for the people we have.
I want you to know that I am so proud of you. Life is hard and people fight battles we know nothing about. Keep fighting. You’ve made it this far and the fight will get easier in time. You’ve made it through so many trials and tribulations and you came out stronger than ever. Let those battles build you, not break you.
At the end of each day I hope you can lay your head down and trust that you are on the path you’re meant to be on. Although your purpose may be unknown to you, someone is already working out the details and waiting for you to change their life. Turn your fear into faith and trust in the plan.
I love you and I cherish you. Every single day.
With all my love,
Someone who thinks you are more than enough.
“…and to wake up knowing that God is on my side, is enough.”
