And you are extraordinary! .
I read today that there is only one chance in 10/2,000,000,000 that your parents can have another child like you and that the combinations of attributes that you have cannot be duplicated. WOW! We are so beautifully and uniquely made ❤️ .
This past week I’ve been hearing and reading a lot about suicide. From the suicide rate of veterans to the suicide rate of kids and teens and It breaks my heart. I was told today that someone I knew committed suicide and I sat there for a bit letting it sink in.
I’ve lost friends to suicide and have attempted suicide multiple times when I was in my teens. I am grateful that I can stand here today, strong, and confidentially say those thoughts are something of the past and I haven’t had thoughts like those in over 10 years. But back then, confidence wasn’t even in my vocabulary. I thought the world was better off without me. I didn’t want to hurt anymore & I didn’t want to deal with the pain of the everyday. But I promise you it gets better. Yes I still get discouraged, down, sad, and depressed but I no longer allow those fleeting moments to control me and my thoughts because I have learned I am worthy, I am loved and I have learned to love all of me!
If I was right in front of you, I’d look you right in the eyes and I’d tell you: I love you. God loves you. Don’t listen to the lies of others. Don’t listen to the lies formed from your doubt and insecurities. YOU are PERFECTLY and UNIQUELY made. Scientifically there will never be another person like you. Statistically the odds are slim to none. Spiritually, God made you perfectly. All your “flaws”, unique qualities, quirks, etc are perfect. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise. You are worth it! You are beautiful! You are intelligent! You are capable! You will change the world! You have a purpose! You are not your past! We make mistakes and ITS OKAY! You WILL find a community of people who appreciate you for who you are. You WILL find people who love you for who you are. You WILL find a tribe who will support you right where you are. ❤️
Remember you are freaking perfect just the way you are!
