Thoughts from Books (#3)

“What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.”

Some people believe that I have my life in order, and that I know exactly what I want to do and how to attain it. Honestly, though, I don’t. I’m struggling just like everyone else. Am I good enough? Does anyone actually like me? These thoughts plague my mind continually, and are some of my deep-rooted insecurities.

It’s okay if you don’t “have it all together.” Don’t be ashamed of your problems or discouraged by your thoughts. Don’t hide behind a mask of “perfection” and good behaviour because it’s expected of you; let others know that you are just as broken as they are, if not more so. Don’t just be someone who others can look up to; be someone that they can relate to. Be a friend. Be honest – both to yourself, and to others. Let’s stop pretending and struggle together.

Which quotes have resonated with you lately?
