I was thinking today about some of the past struggles I have had. Depression can be paralyzing and it can suck the life out of you. One of the things that I struggle with is allowing people to define my worth or my value. I guess if I were to go back into the recesses of my childhood, I might find the root cause of this heavy burden.
However, it wouldn't solve much, no matter what the professionals say about coming to terms with your past hurts. All I know is that there are moments when I let people around me define my value.
No matter what people say about you, you can count on God to value you and love you. The Father created you and knows exactly what your value is and He is treasuring every bit of you.
