You’re Perfect. Just The Way You Are.

Posted on: July 27th, 2012 by Hannah Beasley 3 Comments

Sometimes it feels like you can’t win for losing. That everything you do fails miserably, that your successes are never known, never praised. Sometimes it feels like nothing ever goes right, that you don’t get those things in life that seem so important. And then you look around you and see people who are always happy and successful. They are more popular than you, more talented, and have more opportunities to let those talents shine. They will always be there – people who have better cameras, newer computers, better jobs; people who are more popular, more successful, and more talented. And it’s good. Because that’s who they are, that’s what they’ve been given.

So when you feel like nothing’s going right, and you feel that tinge of jealousy deep in your soul, stop for a moment and remember that you are exactly who you need to be. That you were put here for a reason, and that no one else could live your life better than you. There is a plan for your life, and it’s exactly what you need. Don’t compare yourself to other people, because that will just lead to frustration. Instead, be thankful for the gifts God has given you, and use them! Don’t let your envy for what others have keep you from seeing and using those things you do have. Each one of us is unique – and we need to celebrate it.

So be yourself. Be unique. Because you’re perfect just the way you are.
