The Struggle Is Too Real

Man I struggle with this. Depression and low self-esteem makes it hard. Sometimes the approval of others can boost ones image of themselves.

  1. I totally get this. I have been through an extraordinary amount of trauma in my life. But in my experience, nothing hurts worse than not liking myself.

    I’m sorry you are going through this. I pray you will soon feel much better. I began to get past my self loathing, when I decided to believe that I am a precious, one of a kind original, far more valuable than any Rembrandt or Stradivarius or a Picasso — my worth comes from the fact that I was created by God, made in His image, and He loves me so much that He would have sent Christ, His only begotten Son, to die for me, even if I was the only person who needed saving.

    How awesome is that? Today I am convinced that to believe anything else is to believe a lie. Like a priceless Stradivarius violin, I am worthy because of who made me. My worth comes from Him. And that’s more than good enough for me today. πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜
