Ever since I was a little girl, I felt weird in my own skin.
What is wrong with me? Why don’t I feel normal? Who Am I? These type of questions seemed to be part of my DNA. I still battle with some of the questions and many times daily, I have to replace those negative thoughts.
I have to pull down those negative thoughts and replace them with words that bring me encouragement, words that speak “life” to my brokenness.
I am smart..I am enough…I am healed…I am worthy..I am beautiful..I am loved… These are some of the affirmations I put up on my mirror, or on the wall in my closet. I place these affirmations in an area in which I can see them and say them out loud. If it is a difficult day and I am not “feeling” like an overcomer, I continue to read the positive words and choose to BELIEVE that I am those things.
When I choose to Believe the Truth and not listen to the voice of lies, it empowers me to Live past the pain.
So many young women are not able to live past the depths of the pain and those voices continue to torment and tear them down to the point that they desperately seek comfort…even at the expense of ending their life. All it takes is a moment, to share a smile, a compliment, a hug, or an encouraging word that will give someone Hope to continue to move forward.
Today, I hope to encourage someone…The one who struggles to “feel” normal…The one who is tired of fighting to be “ok” in her own skin.
You are Worthy…You are Loved…You are an Overcomer…You were Created for Greatness…Your Life has Purpose..
No matter what your situation is or what has happened to you in the past, just know that God Loves you and you can Heal.
