Your flaws do not disfigure you, it adds beauty and uniqueness to the work of art that is you. They are those characteristics about you that set you apart from the rest. Your flaws do not disqualify you, it prepares you to the tasks set out for you. Flaws attracts grace. “For the weaker vessels are bestowed much glory” Your flaws are like threads intricately woven into the quilt of your life, delicate patterns of beauty and glory; you can’t and shouldn’t run away from them, you should acknowledge them, and allow the maker to use them to suit His purpose. You are created for a purpose and everything you will ever do and everything able you works according to divinely orchestrated plan for His praise and glory. Your flaws are tools in the hands of the master. Stop focusing on your flaws, stop allowing them to make you feel less and unworthy, don’t let them make you think less of yourself, avoid the low self-esteem. You can do great in spite of your flaws, you can achieve heights unimaginable. Your flaws are not and should not be drawbacks or hindrances. They are meant to be stepping stones, and that is how you should view them. Whatever dream and aspirations you have, don’t jettison them because you feel incapable or unworthy, run with it. You can achieve them all. Never listen to that negative voice that tell you “You think you can do that?” “Are you worthy of this?” “Are you fit or qualified to take this on?” The answer is yes to all of them. Do not think those thoughts, and if they come, pay them no heed. No, do the opposite. Prove them wrong. It’s going to be hard, you are basically fighting against yourself, and that is the toughest war to fight! You are your own worst enemy and unless and until you fight and win against that enemy within, you won’t be able to succeed and move forward. Nobody can make you feel bad if you don’t already feel bad or have doubts about yourself. In fact most times what people say or do to us that gets to us are those things we believe deep down or those we have doubts about. Thus when they say those words, they are saying aloud the thoughts we have been thinking and struggling with. Thus, the change starts from within. In the mind, our thoughts, our self-appraisal and self-worth. It’s time to start looking inwards and to start working on our thoughts and our perception about ourselves.
