Something I struggle with on a daily basis is honestly being myself. I’m one of those people who needs everyone to like me, and I try to do anything I can to be the person that people like and want to be around. I try to be smart enough, and pretty enough and happy and social, and it can be exhausting. Sometimes that isn’t me, but rather the ‘me’ that everyone else wants to see. The thing that helps me deal with it, though, is the reassurance I get from my friends. The people I can be completely myself around, and who love me no matter what. And, really too, I get the reassurance from Jesus that I was made in his image. Sometimes I may forget that I’m made perfectly how I should be, but I’m reminded that he makes no mistakes, and that pushes me through day-to-day.
