“If only you knew how beautiful you are unconditionally. Don’t you know it’s enough if all you do is breathe?” – Brittany Burgunder
Life is tough and that’s a fact we can’t hide or run away from, so we’re always doing and trying our very best to find our place in the world, feel like we belong and achieve happiness. But when you feel like you’ve given it your all and you still seem to be invisible to the people around you, you can’t help but feel like a speck of dust. I get it, but your feelings are not a reflection of the truth. Yes, life is tough but so are you. You matter and you’re more than good enough.
It’s normal to sometimes feel like the world is way too much too handle but don’t let it dull your soul. I know it may seem like a monumental task to lift your spirits right now but that’s only because we’re bombarded by ideals of what our lives are supposed to be and feel like. So your expectations to achieve those ideals are constantly increasing and pushing you to walk away from your beautifully imperfect self. So please, don’t let the outside world get the best of you. The truth is, those ideals are not founded on reality.
You put way too much pressure on yourself to be “enough” and be ahead of the game and end up exhausted and feeling minuscule against expectations that are flawed and impossible to meet to begin with.
Be kind to your heart, you don’t need to be so hard on yourself, It’s a vicious cycle that doesn’t serve you because in the process of trying to obtain the impossible, you lose sight of how amazing and significant you really are. You don’t want to become blind to what makes you unique and special. You have a place in this world and it’s your birthright to claim it, own it and fully enjoy it.
What’s real is that you matter and that you have so much to offer to the world around you. The only approval you need is your own, but if you have doubts about your worth, the love from your loved ones can bring your attention back to the one thing that can protect your heart from senseless thoughts, and that is the real beauty inside you.
So when you feel like you don’t matter, remind yourself that what you are and where you are in your life right now is exactly all you need to be happy. And what you need to do is embrace yourself and allow others to see what you got to offer. Nothing more, nothing less.
There’s something amazing and powerful that happens when you own your beautiful imperfect self. You begin to allow yourself to reach your full potential and experience it with your whole being. You start taking on the world challenges head on because you suddenly feel that your heart is full of dreams and possibilities.
The truth is, you’re worth having the life that you desire without needing anyone’s validation and you have what it takes to take charge of your life and not allow anything or anyone to make you feel like you don’t matter. You’re more than enough, you’re you, beautiful, unique and nothing can break you down.
