Am I good enough?

In relief society today our lesson was on Am I good enough? 5 women got up and just jokingly we started to compare them to one another, we were laughing but you could see how uncomfortable those ladies were. So the point of the president was why do we do this to ourselves?! Why do we compare our weaknesses to others strengths?

It's easy to compare yourself to others on social media because you see these beautiful pictures that show their lives put together and everything seems perfect and you just feel like you aren't good enough and that you are a failure.

Then we talked about how we as parents we cheer on our children and are so proud of their accomplishments. Heavenly Father is the same way, he doesn't sit there and think "wow she isn't doing good enough" NO he sits there and cheers us on, we used the analogy of a referee vs a cheerleader. He is our own personal cheerleader, not the referee. He is happy for those who do the best they can do, even if their best for that day was just surviving, or if your best was completing homework or dragging your butt to work, or just being kind to another.

So I just wanted to post this on here just in case someone else needed to hear this today as well. Because I sure needed to hear it. We need to hear it everyday. YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH! and you DO ENOUGH!
