the worst thing about being shy is that you most of the time come off as cold and arrogant like you think you’re better than everyone else and thats why you don’t talk to people or hang out with them but it’s really the opposite its like you’re so uncomfortable with yourself that you don’t wanna share it with anyone else so you just don’t and people think you’re an asshole but you’re actually just really scared
And so He gently said to her, in the midst of her self-doubt, “My dear, why is it that you desire to find your self worth from others? Why is it that you do not seek to receive your worth from Me? You see darling, I’ve already given it to you.. Remember my grace. Yes, my grace - It’s a free gift and it does not come through anything you believe you deserve or can achieve by aiming higher. It is designed perfectly for you; freely. And so I urge you daughter, to rest in My grace. You will tire from seeking to find recognition in the eyes of others, from desiring to be well-liked and to be included in the worlds view of popularity. I see your heart, my daughter. I see it, I see within your want to be appreciated. But dear, I want you to know that you already have an elevated position. It is because of your relationship with my son, Jesus Christ, that You are already appreciated. Already a part of My kingdom as my daughter, and co-heir with Christ. Because you are the daughter of Me, Your Lord, Your King… You are given the position of being a princess. You are My princess, dear. Remember the truth that I tell you; in that an earthly princess is not made wonderful and precious because of who she is or what she can do nor offer, No. She has status and position for her father is a king. She has royalty in her blood, running through her veins.. You, my daughter; You have royalty in your blood as well. You are my daughter and I am the King. And no matter what you do, your status will never change. I have chosen you and I have planned out your life. I will not forget you and will be with you forever and always. I have engraved you in the palm of my hands. And so I urge you now, my beautiful daughter - to rest in the knowledge of who you are in Me. Nothing else outside of me, will ever be enough. Not words, not actions, not thoughts you can produce- But above all -You are my daughter and I love you. And in that you may rest.”
"Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself. you have to know that you’re a good person & a good friend. what’s meant to be will end up good & what isn’t, wont. relationships are worth fighting for, but sometimes you cant be the only one fighting. at times, people need to fight for you. if they don’t, you must just move on & realize what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you. hopefully, people realize great things when they come around & don’t lose something real. always fight until you cant anymore, & then be fought for."
