lies vs truth.



i'm not old enough.
i'm not smart enough.
I am too young 
to drive, get a job,
be independent.
i'm not experienced enough. 
i'm not skinny enough.
my hair isn't long enough.
my hands aren't small enough.
maybe
i'm just not enough.
but you see,
this is what the world says.
it's what i tell myself [lies]
everyone else wants me to think that
i'm. not. enough.
but
it doesn't work.
I realize that,
i'm old enough
to share hope with the hurting.
i'm smart enough
to teach someone else something.
i'm young enough 
to laugh and make memories.
i'm experienced enough
to be there for someone.
i'm a perfect size.
my hair is beautiful.
my hands are gentle.
maybe
i. am. enough.

[because I am worthy, I am perfect. And I'm trying very hard to not think otherwise. I don't want to be insecure, because I really don't have to be. I am just what God wanted me to be. So are you. <3]

    1. Yes it is so important! I'm glad I have someone to bear it with me. I'm just realizing that we don't have to be insecure about our bodies at all, I'm just growing and changing and should be thankful my body is functioning at least...lol!! But yeah...I think you get it ;) thanks for commenting! <33
