This is written for those of you that feel worthless, that don't know how truly valued you are by the people around you. Because I've been there, and I just want you know, you are worthwhile you are loved and you are amazing.

I'm someone that struggles with self image. I don't like the way i look,  i can't stand how i speak, i'm always looking for the faults in myself, "My problem is i'm not smart enough to get what i want to do" "i'm not a good person because i let someone i care about down" my problem is i can't see anything good in anything i do, that the only thing i do well is let down the people i love and hurt those around me.

I struggle with these thoughts daily, part of me thinks that'll never get over this, maybe i won't but that won't stop me telling others that they are worthwhile. We all need to hear at times that we are wanted, some of us need to here it more than others, and I don't know your story, i have no idea what you may have been through in your lives, all i can go by is my experiences. But i don't need to know your story to know that you are loved, that you are wanted even if at times it seems like you're not. This world would be a worse place if you wasn't a part of it. I don't need to know your talents to know you have them, and you make the world much brighter when you let your gifts shine. You may not know what you're talents are, but that doesn't mean you don't have any. 

I really felt the need to write this as we're a part of a culture that based around judging others based on how they look, or how much money they have, or how good they are at their job. And at times it's nigh on impossible not to get taken in and swallowed up in what i like to call "The perfect 10 culture" This idea that if you have any faults what so ever that you are inherently worthless, that because you don't spend a ridiculous amount of money on cars and clothes that you are somehow inferior to everyone else.

I know this is something that hundreds of other people write about, but this is still such an important thing to understand, you will mess up at times, because none of us are perfect. There will always be people that look down on you, because they're just as imperfect as you are, but that doesn't mean that you're worthless. One of the biggest trials in this life is coming to terms with who we are and accepting ourselves for who we are. I'll be the first to say that's easy to say but difficult to put into practice, but if everything in life was easy it'd be pointless. Keep pushing through the feelings of inadequacy because you're great the way you are, fight the falsehood of worthlessness because you're worthwhile, and beat the mindset of you being awful, because you are amazing. 

 If you have any suggestions for a future topic, let me know in the comments, hope you have a blessed week.
