"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were bon I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:5
Every morning when you look in the mirror, choose to love yourself.
Not in an arrogant, better than anyone else way, but embrace who you are. Your flaws, the things that set you apart. We are all created equally, yet crafted differently for very wonderful reasons.
Embrace everything about who you are and who you aspire to be. Your flaws and imperfections. Your shortcomings and your weaknesses. Embrace your innermost self; dig deep and find out who you really are or the person you desire to be. Love the you that you were created to be.
Find your likes and dislikes, your favorite and less than perfect qualities. What makes you, you? Search for your dreams and goals, your inner most thoughts and secrets and find they very depths of your soul.
Then, love yourself. Speak kindly to you, soothe yourself, grow, embrace, challenge, and learn from yourself. No one else can dictate your soul and your feelings. The things you want more than anything else in this life. Only you can choose and decide what is right for you.
Above all else, be gentle and kind to yourself.
No one in this world is going to love you the way you can love yourself. No matter how transparent you are with another person, they will never know the depths of what lives in your soul.
You were put on earth for a reason. God created you and placed you here with purpose.
Last I checked, He doesn't make mistakes. He leaves room for us to learn and grow , but never has He made a mistake or done the wrong thing.
That is what's so wonderful about you. There will never be another quite like you, and that is not only wonderful, but such a blessing.
You have something to give this world no one else can. Whatever it is, only you can do it, or God would not have created you. You are unique and special in the very best way. Your very own best way.
Whatever your mark is to be left on this world, do it with grace. Leave your footprint, carve your stone, chase what God has put on your heart.
Don't let those around you hold you back because you fear what they will think, or what they might say.
Love and believe in yourself enough to entrust with others what really lies in your soul. Do what sets you apart and makes loving you so special. You will do wonderful things, my friend. You just need to take the first step.
