Our Right To Be Ourselves
It is time to stop picking ourselves to pieces.
Many of us have walked through much of our lives apologizing for ourselves, either directly or indirectly– feeling less valuable than others, believing that they know better than we do, and believing that somehow others are meant to be here and we are not.
We have the right to be here.
We have the right to be ourselves.
We are here. There is a purpose, a reason, and an intention for our lives. We do not have to apologize for being here or for being who we are.
We are good enough, and deserving.
Others do not hold our magic. We hold our own beautiful, unique magic. It is within us.
It doesn’t matter what we’ve done in our past. We all have a past, woven with mistakes, successes, and learning experiences. We have a right to our past. It is ours. It has worked to shape and form us. As we progress on this journey, we shall see how our experiences will be turned around and used for good.
We have already spent too much time being ashamed, being apologetic, and doubting the beauty of ourselves. Be done with it. Let it go. It is an unnecessary burden. Others have rights, but so do we. We are neither less than nor more than. We are equal. We are who we are. That is who we were created and intended to be.
And that is our greatest gift.
