I’m Not Good Enough

This is a crazy thought to have. I think it’s interesting how many of us have had this thought in general about ourselves. We’re just not good enough. We are not worthy.  It’s not as if we apply it to a specific skill set, which would make sense. But we’ve just decided we’re not good enough as human beings. It’s not like, “I’m not good enough at chess” or “I’m not good enough at basketball.” It’s like, “No, I am not good enough, in general.”  But this is not true. Most of us judge ourselves so fiercely and we are so hard on ourselves and we compare ourselves to others constantly. And the rub is: The worse we think of ourselves, the less we show up.

We humans are 100% worthy and 100% loveable because loveability is determined by the lover, not the loved. We were created in God’s image – doesn’t this say enough?

The worse we think of ourselves, the less we show up.

Maybe we were told we were useless at some point in our life. Maybe we learned to believe that our pleasure comes from over-drinking or over-eating. We must be less worthy than another human who could better control themselves and their desires, right?

Here’s what I believe. We are humans who are 100% worthy and lovable. We create our lives based on what we think. Most of us don’t know how to choose those thoughts consciously. So most of us are living the effects of misguided thinking. Think about it. At our cores, at our soul level, at our humanness, we are the same.

We are lovable and worthy. 100%.

You have the same worthiness if your parents were unspeakably abusive and if your parents loved you every second of your life. There is nothing you can do to become more worthy. There is nothing you can do to become more worthy, and there’s nothing you have ever done that has made you less worthy.

We have permission to live from abundance, confidence, and self-love.

We are good enough simply because we were born. Your worthiness has already been decided, and there is nothing you can do about it. Why even bother doing good and better things? Why not just give in to all of the crazy violent, horrible things? Great question. Because it makes your experience of being alive better. Not because it makes you better.

You are already good enough and there is nothing you can do about it.
