Understanding That You Are Enough
We live in a time where we are bombarded with adverts telling us how we can be enough. We see posts on social media by celebrities and influencers that instill in our minds what it means to be enough. However, the truth is that you simply are enough. It is only when you understand that you are enough would you be able to live the best life.
True Love stems from an acceptance of oneself and not what others perceive you as or even caring about their acceptance. When we think of our nature, there are certain things that we cannot expect to change about ourselves or should we want to change about ourselves to please others. Those things are what define you and make you beautiful. You might think to yourself that your flaws are what hold you down. However, they are the most beautiful thing about you and the only things that lift you up and make you stand out in a world full of people trying to be someone they are not.
When you continuously chase someone else's idea of being enough, you can sometimes lose touch of who you are. It prevents you from succeeding in life or building meaningful relationships that make life worth living. Now, it is easy to say that we understand that we are enough. However, it is something that most of us struggle with throughout our lives. It does not matter how old or young you might be, Understanding that you are enough is a continuous process. It requires you to reflect on your achievements and the effort that you had put into making things work.
Reflecting on being enough has a profound effect on how you look at life and the way people treat you. It prevents you from viewing yourself through the perspective of another person. Instead, you get to look within which allows you to truly accept who you are and move past expectations. The only person you need to accept yourself and tell you that you are enough is you. There is no reason for you to beat yourself up or feel unworthy. If you do not accept yourself or think that you are enough, nobody else will. It all starts with you as you are the only universe that needs exploring.
Real love begins on the inside. How can you expect to give love when you do not love yourself? You need to love yourself if you want to make your life better. When you constantly tell yourself that you are not enough, you let others know that you are not enough and that they should not fully accept you. Therefore, you must stop looking at yourself so critically and be more compassionate towards yourself.
The only takeaway that you need to take from our post is that you are enough the way you are and that you have always been enough. Nobody can tell you otherwise. If they bring you down, their company is not worth pursuing.
