I Am Enough

For most of my adult life I’ve always worked to make myself better. This is not a bad thing; we should always be finding ways of being better people. But in this state of bettering myself, I never stopped to see that I was also perfect the way I am; that, even though I always strived to make myself a better person and friend, I never stopped to realize that I am perfectly fine the way I am. I am enough.

.

It’s not the act of bettering, it’s the reason behind it. Why? Why do I want to make myself better? To be liked or loved? To be made to feel special? Don’t I already know that I am all of those things and more? Don’t I know I’m already enough? Be better because you want self-improvement, not social improvement.

.

In case I didn’t know, I am enough. And in case you didn’t know, you are enough too. There’s nothing wrong with you. You are enough to be a loving, caring, hard working, special human being.

.

.

So if you’re stuck in a dizzying cycle of self-improvement like I get, stop and tell yourself you’re enough. You don’t need a special book or set of rules, you don’t need another person to give you love or approval, and you certainly don’t need any chain of posts from ‘successful’ people telling you what to think, say, buy, or do. Just be. You are enough. 😊
