One Thing You Should Know | Blog-tember Day 20

One Thing You Should Know | Blog-tember Day 20 #blogtemberchallenge

It's day twenty in the blog-tember challenge and today's prompt is to share something I wish more people knew or believed. I've thought long and hard about this and have decided to share something that even I don't know or believe and here it is...

You are important.

It's a novel idea, eh? I can say this to myself over and over. I can hear someone else say it to me, but somehow, for some reason, it doesn't get through this thick head of mine and soak in.

But, the truth is, you are important. You are special. You are unique. You are wanted. You are loved. And so am I.

You might think you aren't enough. Perhaps you aren't pretty enough. Smart enough. Talented enough. Maybe your body isn't the right size or shape. Maybe your nose curves too far to the left. Maybe you don't have the best job or drive the nicest car. Maybe you aren't as well spoken as you'd like. Maybe you didn't get your degree from an Ivy League school. Maybe you didn't get a degree at all. There are an infinite number of reasons why we can be not enough. There are so many ways to tear ourselves down and we do it every day.

Let's try something different this time around. Let's start believing something else.

You are important.

You are special. You deserve respect. You deserve love. You are enough.

Let that soak in...

What is one thing you wish others knew or believed?
