We can only try our best. We’re not all-powerful and we’re not all-knowing. We can only make decisions to the best of our abilities. If we do that, we can bear the many mistakes we’ll make and the troubles that life will bring. Because we can’t ask more of ourselves than our best. We’re only human and that’s alright.
It’s hard for us to tell ourselves that we’re beautiful and intelligent and loved. Maybe that’s because we haven’t been loved in the past or maybe that’s because we have been taught not to love ourselves. But we are all beautiful and intelligent and loved, even if we can’t see it. Our differences and our weaknesses only enhance that beauty, intelligence and love. Let’s stop doubting our worth, our capability or our strength. It’s all there, even if we don’t see it.
The world teaches us to always focus on our weaknesses, our cracks, our flaws. But we need to stop ignoring and hiding what we’re good at. We need to play to our strengths to play the game. And we all have strengths, whether in our personality, our intelligence, our skills, our outlook, and so on. We just need to look. We should start using them, showing them and celebrating them. We should turn our flaws into strengths by embracing them. Focus on your strengths, teach yourself to love yourself.
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is most adaptable to change – Charles Darwin
