God Is Proud Of You
No matter what you do or how good you do it, there will always be people who will be dissatisfied with you, criticize you, and try to change you.
If you are always listening to other people’s voices and opinions and trying to change yourself to please others, you will end up lost, confused, and with an identity you can’t identify yourself with.
You will end up living for others, and you won’t walk the right track that leads you to your life purpose. Walk the Narrow Path that leads to God by being yourself and not being what everybody else is, wants or expects you to be.
You Can’t Please Everyone
Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do and damned if you don’t.
You can’t expect everybody to like you, and you can’t change yourself and your values for everybody you meet. You can’t live your life trying to make everybody accept you, you can only be yourself.
If you base what you wear, do, think, or say on what others think, you will never be happy, because people are never satisfied. People will always find something wrong, something they want you to change or to do differently.
If you base your life on God and what He wants you to do, you will be happy and satisfied, because God is easy to please—He just wants you to be yourself. God doesn’t care if you’re not dressed in the latest fashion, if your hair or make up isn’t perfect, if you don’t have much money, wealth, or a great career.
It doesn’t matter if you’re the president or the postman; we are all equal in His eyes. He loves you just the way you are and just wants you to be yourself and do the best you can do.
Isn’t He the one who shows no partiality to princes and does not favor the rich over the poor, for they are all the work of his hands?
How People Act When They Don’t Feel Worth Or Value
When people don’t feel worthy or valuable, they start searching for value outside of themselves. Many start seeking approval from others through accomplishments; the more they accomplish, the more valuable they feel. They become approval addicts.
This is especially a trait in workaholics; their worth and value are in what they do and what they achieve rather than in who they are and their personality.
When people feel like they’ve been disrespected, picked on, stepped on, and hurt too much, they compensate for it by telling themselves: “When I get more money, when I buy that car or that house, then I will be happy.”
“When I have that job, or when I’ve accomplished or reached that goal, then I will be happy.” “When I lose that weight, when I buy that dress, when I buy those shoes, then I will feel better, and then I will feel happier. Then I can feel some worth and value.”
When people don’t feel good about themselves, they start being jealous of what somebody else has, things that they would like to have. And to feel better about themselves they look for mistakes, faults, and imperfections in other people to feel better about their own imperfections, mistakes, and the things they feel they lack.
Not understanding that they are everything they are supposed to be and everything they need to be and that the best of them already lies within.
God made You and every single person the way they are for a reason, everybody has a different life purpose, different gifts and talents.
Comparing yourself with others will always have the same result, and that is misery, because there will always be somebody who’s better than you at something, and jealousy will not solve anything, it will only make it worse. The only solution is acceptance of yourself, to accept everything you are and everything you’re not.
Instead of trying to be somebody you’re not, get good at being yourself, because nobody can play your role and your part any better than You!
Don’t Get Your Worth From The Wrong Things
Don’t get your worth and value from your relationships, your career and profession, accomplishments, and material things, neither by other people’s opinions.
Stop measuring your worth and value based on external things, you have great worth and value even if you’re not perfect and don’t do everything perfect all the time and make mistakes.
You have great worth even if you’re not married, don’t have children, haven’t bought that dream house, or have that dream job or dream car. Don’t base your worth or value on your lacks, imperfections, disappointments, and past, base your worth on who you are and on the great, unique person God made you to be.
You Are Valuable
Your worth and value comes from who you are made by God.
If you have a newborn baby in your hands, do you think of that baby as a being of no value? Do you see that baby as worthless because he/she doesn’t have any accomplishments, fashion clothes, money, or wealth? That baby is of great value without those things, and so are you to God.
Or what if you had a 100-dollar in your hand and you crumbled it or stepped on it, would you consider it less valuable? No, you wouldn’t, it would still have the same value, and so do you.
You are not your mistakes; you are not your failures. And neither is it your accomplishments or your profession that define your worth and value. What you are is a valuable soul and being made by a God who loves you regardless of what you’ve done or haven’t done. You are good enough, Just The Way You Are.
