Are you good enough?

You may ask yourself this question everyday because there are always those people that look at you in a different way, and make you feel like your not as good as them but guess what? You are. You may let yourself get down on their level but there is always going to be that one person that will pick you back up when you fall. They might not be who you expect, but there is always someone out there who cares. You may not think so, but there are so many other people out in this world that is in a more difficult situation than you. I'm not saying that situations here in America aren't bad but there are a lot of other people who don't have some of the luxuries that we have. Be thankful for what you have and not for things that you have lost or forgotten. You may miss those things that you lost , but most of the time you cant get those things back. So be thankful that you had those things at one point in life and learn from what happened and learn from that mistake. If you are getting bullied you need to tell someone, even if your scared. If you are getting bullied online, you really need to tell someone, you shouldn't let this person get in your head, and you shouldn't listen to what they have to say because most of the time, they are always wrong. 

If you feel this way about people not caring, then you should do something about it. Go out and find some new friends that are similar to you. They may not be perfect but that person is better than nothing. You shouldn't care what people think of you because they don't know what you've been through or if your going through something. They also don't need to know unless you want to tell them and you feel comfortable doing so. If you ever feel like nobody cares, you should really go to a teacher at school that you trust or a family member that will listen. You never know who you could talk to and trust until you do talk to them and see how they react. You might be able to go onto social media and talk to people you have never talked to.(Obviously someone you know) Send them a message, you never know what might happen unless you try. Some people will ignore you but some people are different, they will actually talk to you.

  • I feel like everyone is always good enough for something or someone. Most girls don't think they are good enough for their boyfriends, or even to hang out with people. They ARE good enough. Girls just like to settle less for what they are actually capable of getting (boyfriend wise).. That's completely normal. People should not care what others think of them. Everyone is unique in their own way and people just have to accept that at sometime, but I know with this generation, everyone is judged. It's easy to think you aren't good enough but always just know you are whoever you are :)
  • Thank you for posting this because a lot of people feel they are not 'good enough" but the thing is, is who are we judging that is "perfect". No one is perfect and that is the ironic thing about people not feeling good enough. People are judged by other people and compare themselves to others. But those other people are comparing themselves to you which leads to a lot of insecurities.
  • This is such an uplifting post, thank you. We can actually use social media to our advantage when we reach out to someone to help ourselves, or when someone reaches out to us to help them.
  • You make a good point. Social media can be a force for good, if we choose to use it in that way.
  • There are a lot of people that do feel this way and that's what is good about social media. Some people may not like talking to someone face to face and with social media, they can talk to someone whenever they want.
  • I LOVE this post. Many people often feel "not good enough." Not good enough for society, for family, for friends, for significant others, or even for themselves. I think self-love is something we should all be learning from the time we can understand the differences we all have.
