bigger than us)
well, since we all want to be loved doesn't it make sense that we also all want to know that we are good - just being ourselves? that our goodness is not dependent on things we do or say, rather who we are innately.
the world is constantly tearing us down, pulling apart our dreams and convincing us that we aren't enough. i don't want to agree with that negative force in my life anymore. i want to believe that i am good enough. i want to believe that good things can happen, but even when they don't that i am still good.
Heavenly Father doesn't love me because i'm perfect, He loves me because He is perfect. because i am a daughter of God, i can know that i am good.
i stumbled upon this picture and whoever michael s. is, i think he has the right idea:
despite the things i do wrong, i'm still a good person.
i want to make it more of a habit to tell that to myself and to those i love every chance i get.
