What you say of me, I believe

I beat myself up for my failures and shortcomings. I wish I were perfect and that I never made mistakes. I compare myself to other people and find myself lacking in something. I don’t measure up. I worry about what people think of me.

I keep fighting the voices in my head that say I am not enough. The voices say I am the sum of all my failures and mistakes. They tell me that I am not sophisticated enough. I am not funny enough. I am not clever enough. I am not good enough. I am not enough.

God, remind me once again just who I am because I need to know.

I say I am unlovable. You say I am beloved.

I say I don’t fit in. You say I belong to you.

I say I am alone. You say you are with me. You will never leave me.

I say I am weak. You say I am strong.

I say that I am afraid. You say you are with me. You will help me. You will uphold me.

I believe. I believe. What you say of me, I believe.
