Sometimes the people you love the most, that you hold in the highest regard, and which you have the deepest respect for, can often hurt you with unkind words and believe that it’s ok. It isn’t ok.
Words matter and they can hurt. Deeply. And it’s not because we are too sensitive, it’s because it does matter what we say and what we do.
I know that I am imperfect and have many flaws and that at times I am full of mistakes. I also know that God made me in his image. That I am uniquely made to provide something special that this world needs. My own gift and contribution, that God specifically created with me in mind.
So while yes it does hurt when someone I’m close with feels the need to point out that they are better than me at something, it’s a relief to me to be able to say to myself, and most importantly believe, that God truly loves me so.
I am doing my best and that’s good enough for God and me.
