As a mum, there have been many times when I have wondered if I was good enough. I don’t always get things right and make mistakes, but show me a parent that doesn’t. What do other parents see when they look at me, do they see someone who is winging it, do they see someone who has got it together or someone who is doing the best they can.
As a Friend and human being I have often wondered whether I am good enough, if I was a better person would more people like me. Would I be good enough for them. What do they see when they look at me.
As a Family Member I have often wondered if I was good enough, am I getting it right, am i supportive enough, am I a good enough daughter, sister, aunt, niece. What do they see when they look at me.
As a colleague I have often wondered if I was good enough, am I good enough at my job, am I helpful and supportive. I still have my job, I haven’t been fired yet.
It has taken me a long time to be comfortable with who I am. I now realise that everyone has these doubts at some point in their lives. It’s ok to have them.
I am good enough, I am continuing to learn and grow. Life is a journey of growth. There is no rule book. I just needed to believe in myself and have faith in my abilities.
And, so are you, you are good enough just the way you are.
