Do You Sometimes Believe You’re Not a Good Person?

As durable as the human psyche can be, it can also be very fragile in certain instances. We’re all formed to one degree or another by the things we experience in life, things that are said to us, the way we are treated by others, etc. It doesn’t take long to realize that some of us have a much higher self-image than others. The key to remember, however, is that no one is “better” or “worse” than anyone else when it comes to our intrinsic dignity and worth. Do you sometimes think things about yourself like:

  • God couldn’t possibly have a special purpose for my life
  • I know I won’t be able to finish what I’ve set out to do
  • There’s no way I measure up to (name of someone you admire)
  • All I do is fail whenever I try to accomplish something
  • I’m just not a good person, that’s all
  • I wish I were never born
  • I’m never going to amount to anything

These and countless other thoughts run through many of our minds. How do we defeat them and discover our true self-worth? Reframing who we are, and whose we are, can go a long way toward doing just that. Inside of you is a person made just the way you are by a God who has from all eternity had a purpose that only you can fulfill. No one else! Let’s talk about the very rewarding exercise of learning to think of ourselves and act accordingly.
