I let somebody make me feel small today.
They didn’t try to; I just let them.
I let someone I hardly know take me back to a place of shame I lived in long ago for way too long.
It was like I instantly lost the last six years of data of my own life and got stuck right back in that all-too-familiar shameful place of insecurity, inferiority, unworthiness, and self-disgust.
And then I remembered.
I remembered that I am not what I did.
I am not my mistakes, I am not my poor choices, I am not what other people think, I am not what a filter-and-photoshop-obsessed world wants me to be.
DO NOT LET THE WORLD REDUCE YOU. This is how the enemy wins.
May we have the courage to stand tall in who we are. Shaped in the image of the One who created us, who made us into beautiful things out of the dust.
We’re divine inside… I want to live like it.
