To The Person Who Believes They Are Unworthy Of Love

Your heart is so beautiful.

It is so easy to beat yourself up for all of the bumps along the road that might have left a little damage. But a mistake does not make you a failure. A mistake doesn’t strip you of your worthiness.

Being walked away from doesn’t strip you of your worthiness.

Being lied to doesn’t strip you of your worthiness.

Being rejected, cheated on, led on, and/or played doesn’t mean you are unworthy and it definitely doesn’t make you unworthy.

The fact that you have a soul and a beating heart inside of your body makes you worthy of love.

People will tear you down but it’s nothing compared to the tearing down we do to ourselves.

We run circles of doubt and insecurity in our minds until we reach a point of desperation and then we crash and question why our brains are too exhausted to think. But yet it becomes a vicious cycle that we continually throw ourselves into because its comfortable.

It’s comfortable for us to question our worthiness because if we outwardly express our insecurity then maybe someone will feed our desire to be affirmed.

That may sound harsh but the truth is, the lie of unworthiness starts in our minds. The best way to exterminate a weed is to go to the root.

We have to go to the place where the lie started and dig it out by the roots.

I know it’s easier said than done. And I know it’s easier sometimes to sit and soak in the lies.

I know. I get it.

It’s an everyday battle and it is hard.

But let me tell you, it is more exhausting to run the marathon of lies than it is to landscape your mind. 

Eventually, it gets easier. Once you start believing the truths, you can flip it around and throw yourself into a cycle of truth and encouragement.

You can start the cycle. And what’s inside will begin to flow outside and will pour into others. It’ll become second nature to you.

Because your heart was created beautifully, and so was your mind. They weren’t created to be ugly and overgrown with lies.

You are worthy of love from whoever you are seeking it from but most of all you are worthy of love from God and from yourself.

Simply put, you are worthy of love. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
