Dear Me

Dear me,

Can you please cut yourself some slack? You are not abnormal. You are a little weird, but that's okay.

It's okay to not have everything figured out. It's okay to ask for help. It's okay to admit that sometimes everything is not okay.

It's okay to not be okay!

Dear me, sometimes you have to take a step back to move forward. Take a deep breath and stop over analyzing everything.

You are valued. You are loved. There are people around you who care, but you have to stop letting people's opinions and reactions control you!

Your validation comes from Christ!!

Dear me, God could not love you any more or any less than He does at this moment! That is enough!

Life is but a breath, so stop spending it trying to please people who will never be pleased!

On that note, self, just admit that you are a recovering people-pleaser! It's okay! You have been given a spirit of power, love and self control! You know you have been given everything to overcome that!

Dear me, you are not defined by mistakes you made in the past. There is no condemnation in Christ! He's forgiven you, so you have to allow yourself to move forward. It's okay to learn from the past, but you don't live in it!

If you are abiding in Him, then everything else will fall into place. Cast all your anxieties on Him because HE LOVES YOU!

Dear me, never forget that in all things God is good, faithful and sovereign.
