If you allow yourself to BELIEVE you are LESS THAN, you don’t have to do the Work to be MORE. The way you treat yourself is often a reflection of how you see yourself. Many of us willingly choose to view ourselves as insignificant or irrelevant, because we instinctively know that if our self-perception were to improve, we’d be forced to value ourselves more with our actions, and that would require effort. For example, if you started believing you were beautiful, you’d have to start acting beautiful in the way you dressed, interacted with people, and treated your body. Being ugly isn’t necessarily something we prefer, it just requires much less effort. Don’t let lazy, self-valuing keep you from being the amazing person God created you to be. You’re worth the work.
Psalms 139:13-16 ESV: For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
