May is mental health month and this year’s theme is “more than enough.” It’s such a powerful reminder that despite who we are, where we come from, what we’ve been through, or even our current struggles - we have always been more than enough.
Here are 10 reasons why you will forever be more than enough:
You have inherent value as a human being. You don't need to do or be anything else to be worthy of love and respect. You exist and you take up space in the world and that is enough. Nobody can ever take away the value you have as a living being.
You have unique skills, talents, and qualities that make you special. There’s no one in the world quite like you - with the same fingerprints as you. Embrace all that you are and don’t be afraid to show it or share it.
You are capable of growth and learning. Even if you make mistakes or have weaknesses, you can always work to improve and become a better version of yourself. Use your shortcomings as opportunities to do better and remember that everyone makes mistakes - don’t beat yourself for it.
You are deserving of happiness and fulfillment. You don't need to meet any specific standards or expectations to be worthy of a good life. Generational health and wealth can begin with you no matter what your family background looks like.
You are enough just as you are, right now, in this moment. Whether you’re having the best or worst day, you are enough. Whether your mental health is great or not so great, you are enough in this moment.
You have overcome challenges and difficulties in the past, showing that you are strong and resilient. You have the strength of the hundreds of battles you’ve won to get to where you are today. Don’t doubt your ability to overcome the mountains ahead of you.
You have positive qualities that make you a good friend, family member, or partner, such as empathy, kindness, and loyalty. These are all wonderful qualities to have, and they make you a valuable and cherished member of any relationship. There’s no relationship that you’re not worthy of which also means that nobody is out of your league.
You have unique life experiences that have shaped you into the person you are today and these experiences are valuable and worth sharing. There’s no shame in your story or your scars. Don’t let shame rob you of appreciating your journey thus far.
You have the power to make a positive impact on the world, no matter how small. Your actions and words can make a difference to those around you. Strive to be a good human who treats others kindly and shows up in the world as their most authentic self.
You can define your own success and happiness. You don't need to compare yourself to others or meet anyone else's expectations to feel fulfilled in life. Focus on what matters to you and what makes you feel fulfilled. Maybe it's pursuing a career that you're passionate about, spending time with loved ones, or pursuing a personal goal or hobby. Whatever it is, remember that you have the power to define your own success and happiness.
Always keep in mind that:
You will always be more than enough, even in your lowest moments.
You will always be more than enough, even when others try to bring you down.
You will always be more than enough, even if you make mistakes.
You will always be more than enough, even when you doubt yourself.
You will always be more than enough, even when you feel inadequate.
You will always be more than enough, even if you don't fit in with the crowd.
You will always be more than enough, even if you're not perfect.
You will always be more than enough, even when life gets tough.
You will always be more than enough, simply because you exist.
You will always be more than enough, even if you don't meet others' expectations.
