good enough, A message to anyone who has wondered if they’re good enough

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.

An invitation

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!
