Don’t Beat Yourself Up For Where You Are

Dear Someone,

I want you to take a moment and breathe. Take a moment and remember how far you have come. Take a moment to be thankful for everything thrown at you, and take a second moment to thank God that you are still standing.

Life might not have been fair, but do not let a slight inconvenience ruin your day. Don’t beat yourself up for where you are.

People may not have been so kind to you, but don’t let all that they have done to you hold you back. It will always be on you, to get you, where you want to be.

You may have been misunderstood, misjudged, maligned, and maltreated, but never put out your fire because someone else doesn’t understand your flame. Don’t let their negativity overshadow the good.

You may have been told time after time that you are worthless, incapable, unfit, and classless just because you have refused to be ordinary. Breathe, knowing that your peace is way more important to you than letting people’s opinions stop your good energy.

You may have been stuck somewhere you don’t belong, but you are not behind in life. This chapter of your life is yours and yours alone to write. Don’t hand the pen to anyone else.

I may not know exactly what you’re going through, but breathe and carry on. I may not know how deep it hurts, but stop questioning yourself just because someone doesn’t get you, love you, or appreciate you.

I don’t know who you are, Dear Someone, but I want you to always remember that God’s mercies for you will never come to an end. Never! They are new every morning (see Lamentations 3:22-23).

May God richly bless you as you read this letter over again and may His mercy, peace, and love be yours in abundance (Jude 1:2) in Jesus’ Name.

In His Grip,
Ali Papa.
