A message to anyone who has ever wondered if they’re “good enough”
Hello, my name is Linda Bjork. I’m the founder and executive director of Hope for Healing, and I have a personal message for anyone who has ever wondered if they’re good enough, or felt like they’re not good enough.
I get it. I understand how that feels.
I spent the majority of my life believing that I was unworthy and undeserving of love. I knew that there was love in the world, but I thought it was for those who were worthy of that love, and I simply wasn’t one of those lucky enough to have fate smile upon them.
What can make a person feel like they’re “not good enough?”
Why did I believe this? Mostly it was because of events in my early years that I interpreted and misinterpreted. I was six years old when I made the conclusion that I wasn’t worthy and deserving of love; and that belief system would remain with me, and define my world, for the next forty years.
How did this belief system affect me? My self-esteem was basically at zero. It’s interesting that after deciding that I wasn’t good enough, no amount of success or accomplishment could convince my mind that I was enough. The decision had already been made. Period. It didn’t matter that I performed at Disneyland with my choir, or performed onstage in dance performances, and in musicals. It didn’t matter when I received trophies for debate competitions. It didn’t matter that I graduated at the top of my class, and spoke at graduation. It didn’t matter that I received a four-year, full tuition scholarship. It didn’t matter when I graduated college with honors. It didn’t matter when I served in community and church leadership positions. It didn’t matter that I had a wonderful husband, and raised a beautiful family. It didn’t matter what I did, because I already had decided that I wasn’t good enough when I was six years old, and that belief system remained solidly in place. I wasn’t consciously aware of what I was doing, but those underlying beliefs ruled my world.
Discovering the reasons and learning what to do about it
Later, I sought help from a mentor who helped me uncover the reasons why I felt the way that I did. We found the source, and I realized that my reasons for deciding that I was unworthy and undeserving of love were not valid.
However, just knowing the truth wasn’t enough to change a lifetime of habits and beliefs. I was like a recovering addict who wanted to keep going back to what was familiar. It seems so strange to want to go back, but there is a feeling of safety in familiarity. The unknown can be scary, but now that I’m breaking free from a lifetime of addiction to unhealthy and untrue beliefs, my life is so much better.
I know there are others out there who, like me, have been tied down to false beliefs for one reason or another; and I know they would be so much happier and feel more fulfilled, and enjoy so much more peace and abundance, if they only understood the truth. I invite you to believe and to share this message of hope: You are good enough!
