Fully Living Life

Who has struggled with their own self-worth? Who has seen themselves through someone else’s judgmental eye or the expectations of society? Who has accepted some of those judgmental labels from others as your own thoughts? I want to say I am stronger than that. Stronger than to ever accept less than what my God says I am. But, if I’m being honest, I can’t say I’ve done that my whole life.

As a child, in school I was afraid to speak up, afraid of being judged or criticized. So, that crept into the beginning of my adulthood as I was afraid of taking risks, afraid to step out, especially in front of my peers, those I hoped to earn acceptance from. However, that is not fully living. Unfortunately, it took a moment of almost losing my life to realize this. God does not cause bad things to happen, but He will carry you through it and use it. In that moment He taught me not to go through life without fully living it.
