First of all, you are and always have been more than good enough. You’re beautiful, smart, and worthy. You’re special.
By Riley Cooper
The kind of girl you are is very difficult to find. You’re like a unique, precious gem that everyone wants to have, but only a few are lucky enough to find it.
Being the girl who cares about other people more than about herself isn’t easy at all. You’re the girl who is willing to do anything to make your loved ones happy. You unselfishly give them your love, kindness, respect, and compassion without expecting anything in return.
And this wears you out.
It often makes you feel upset and sad but you don’t allow this to change the way you behave towards others. You put their feelings and needs first and neglect and oftentimes, you completely forget about your own.
You sacrifice your happiness and emotional well – being for them, but you don’t mind it because helping others unselfishly is in your nature. It’s stronger than you.
You’re the girl who loves hard. You love with your heart, mind, and body.
You’re the girl whose heart has been broken many times and who was left to pick up the pieces alone. The one who was often made to question herself.
You loved and devoted every part of yourself to the guy who didn’t know your worth. Who didn’t appreciate your unconditional love and undivided attention. You thought that if you showed him how deep and pure your love for him was, he’d change. But, that never happened. The more you tried to make things work, the more he made you feel unworthy.
It wasn’t your fault that he didn’t realize how lucky he was for having such an amazing person beside him. You were his blessing but he didn’t bother losing you.
The only thing he deserves from you is to forget about him completely. His inability to see your importance shouldn’t determine your self-worth and happiness.
Forget about the girl you always compared yourself to.
You’re beautiful just the way you are. Stop thinking that the other girl is prettier, smarter, and more important than you. Just because you don’t look like her or wear the type of clothes she does, it doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough. We’re all different and therefore special in a unique way.
Stop thinking that your weight determines your beauty and value.
Just because your body doesn’t follow the supposed 90-60-90 measurements of a perfect woman’s body, this doesn’t make you less attractive or unworthy. You can be slim, voluptuous, or have extra pounds, still, your weight doesn’t define who you are. Your worth and beauty come from inside of you. They come from your personality and virtues. The good things you do for people and for yourself. Your beauty, both outward and inner, is determined by the quality of life you lead.
You need to stop focusing on your imperfections, we all have them. But, that’s exactly what makes you different from the rest, unique, and special.
Forget about your past mistakes and failures.
You made mistakes and bad decisions in the past. You failed to achieve an important goal. But, we’ve all been there. It’s normal to make mistakes, but people grow, learn, and change. Don’t allow your failures and mistakes to stand in your way to happiness and success. Instead, learn from them and move on.
Don’t worry about what other people think and say about you. Don’t worry about how they look and what they’re wearing. Don’t worry about whether you’re in a long relationship or single. You were made to be different from others. What you should worry about is whether you’re doing your best to make yourself happy and fulfill your goals and wildest dreams.
You need to accept yourself just the way you are. Don’t try to change the way you look or behave so that people like you. Instead, be yourself and the right ones will love you.
Let go of those who don’t respect you and appreciate your kindness. You deserve better than that.
You deserve much more than being someone’s second choice. You deserve someone who will treat you the way you deserve to be treated. Someone who will give you the same amount of love, respect, and kindness you so unselfishly give. Someone who will be honest, loyal, and fully committed to you.
You deserve a guy who will accept you for who you are – with all your flaws, quirks, and fears. A guy who will show you that your relationship does have what it takes to last a lifetime. A guy who will know that you’re more than enough.
You’re an independent girl who has been hurt, but who has grown and become strong. You’re beautiful, smart, brave, worthy and funny.
Love and embrace every single part of yourself and you’ll see how special you are. You’ll see you’re more than good enough.
