I sometimes wish that our world didn’t attach accomplishment or attractiveness to worthiness. It feels as if we are constantly trying to be “worthy” of something.
We try to fight to be worthy of love, worthy of time, worthy of friendship, and worthy of ourselves.
We are continually trying to change who we are just so we can feel that we care enough to meet someone else’s needs.
I’m so sick and tired of trying to be just what you need. I need to be what I need.
I’m so sick and tired of trying to meet certain requirements that determine what kind of person I am.
I am simply exhausted from continually trying to prove to people that I may be enough for them, and their love.
I don’t need to chase worthiness anymore.
I am worthy of love.
I am worthy of love because I am a living, breathing human being.
I am worthy of love because I care about other people, I live with gratitude in my soul, and I try to put the pieces back together when I can.
I’m so sick of fighting to be worthy of your love.
I do not owe you anything but myself. I shouldn’t have to turn myself in circles to meet your requirements or to try to reach your unrealistic expectations.
I am worthy of love because I am fighting for myself.
I don’t want to have to chase you or change everything about myself to prove to you that I’m something that is good for you.
I want to stand right where I am, with my shoulders against the wall, with my messy hair and crooked smile, and be worthy of love.
So I’m going to stop chasing worthiness, and I’m going to start telling myself every single day that I deserve good love. I’m going to start telling myself that at the end of the day, I want to come home to my imperfections and not feel ashamed of them. At the end of the day, I want to be exactly what someone needs. I want to find someone who embraces me for every broken song I’m trying to sing and every broken bridge I’m trying to fix.
I’m so sick of fighting to be worthy of your love, because at the end of the day, I am worthy of love.
I am more than worthy of love.
I deserve good love, and I won’t stop until I find it.
