You Are Enough

I’m tired of it. You’re giving in, selling out, and I want nothing of it.

I see you walking around with a defeated attitude, and I won’t wallow there with you. I’m sorry. I really am. But I see what you don’t or what you refuse to see.

You deserve more.

But for some reason you just don’t see it. I don’t know if it’s a case that you’ve been told over and over and over again that you’re not worth it? Is that it?

It’s a lie.

Is it a case where life has just beaten you down time and time again? Where it seems like everything you try just turns to shit?

It’d be stupid for me to tell you not to worry. It sucks. It really does. I can tell you it will all get better, but it may not. I can tell you it will get easier, but what if it doesn’t?

But I can tell you how to find peace.

I can show you how to look for and see hope in the darkest of places. And sometimes a little bit of hope can change the world.

So if you insist on walking around continually defeated, I will not have any part of it. I don’t want to be harsh, but I refuse to let you continue to feel like you’re worthless or you’re not worth the effort.

What I will do is show you your worth. You have these qualities that are unique to you. These qualities make you so, so special. But you hide them away where even you can’t remember what you did with them.

They’re beautiful. I want you to share them with the world. Heck, I’m just going to say it. I want you to share them with me. A little selfish? Probably. But I want you to have a safe place. I want you to see that there is a place made especially for you. And as hard as it is to believe it, I know it’s true.

You don’t need to feel defeated.

You can have peace in the midst of hard times.

You are beautiful.

You are special.

You are loved.

You are enough.
