Comparison can get the best of us.
While I was growing up, I constantly compared myself to others, it seemed there was always someone better, prettier, more accomplished than me… the list could go on and on.
As I got older, I still have to fight with the voices inside my head telling me I’m not good enough, pretty enough, strong enough…
It doesn’t stop, and in reality, it probably never will, but that doesn’t mean I have to let it take over my head and heart.
You Are Perfect – Because You Are You
In my life, anxiety and depression have both stemmed from these feelings and don’t get me wrong they still do occasionally take control. I am just getting better at seeing that I am me and that is what makes me perfect.
Today’s post from Blessed is She really hit home:
We are made to be cherished, not to be compared. We are made to be celebrated, not to compete. Because we have been created by a loving God who wanted our life to exist and who calls us beloved so we can love in turn.
There is no other person out there who can be you or me. God created us to be who we are. He gave us our talents and shaped us.
We are all here for a reason. God created us for a purpose. There is no one else that can live our lives. No one else that can do the things God has set out for us. We are his perfect candidate.
We can choose to let anxiety and depression overrun our lives, or we can remember who we are and who loves us because of the pure fact that we are the one and only version of ourselves!
So next time you are feeling down about yourself, remember that you are perfect – because you are you! And no one can take that away from you!
