Self perception can create illogical wars and a waste of time but it is something that every single person deals with from time to time. Some deal with it more than others. It also can create such a turmoil in the head that it can break your spirit toward growth and productivity. Crushing any chances of moving forward and changing for the better.
Recently I have been bombarded by some negatively. Not the ones where people attach you or say mean things but much worse. When people are pessimistic, betray your confidence, steal you ideas, and not invite you to things.
How do you move forward from these endeavours with grace and love? Having the strength to believe in who you really are despite anybody and everything else?
It’s just as easy to believe we’re awesome as it is to believe were giant sucking things. -Jen Sincero

We can choose to dwell on the negative or we can take the same energy and dwell on the truth and stand in grace. Seeing what God see’s in ourselves and in others. Loving the way Jesus loves also means loving yourself the way He see’s you. You are magnificent, perfect in Christ, brilliantly made for amazing purpose’s, and capable of living that way! Do not allow the enemy or anyone else one more minute of your precious time and space. Call out who you are and stand in that confidence! I believe in you, and so does God. Keep reaching!
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
