It seems like I have been hounded and will continue to be hounded by this terrible plague that does not want to let me go.
Sometimes,most times,it seems like I’ll forever struggle with the answer to the question of all time-“Am I enough?”
I have pleaded and pleaded for it to be taken away from me but it keeps rearing its head up in my life.
This ever present question has followed me right from my days in Secondary school where it was said that I won’t do well because I skipped pry 6 and entered from pry 4.It has followed me all through my University days while studying to be a Law graduate and I didn’t know if I’ll graduate with a 2:1 or less.Its claws eat deep into me whenever I am asked for advice,what is it really that I have to say that can help another? Are my words worth any salt? I want to make my mark in this World before I leave but the Question continues to trail me,”Am I Enough?”
Never mind that I ended up being the best in my art class in Secondary School.
Never mind that I was chosen out of the entire students(most of whom finished pry 6)to become the Senior Prefect and even turned down the position of S.P but was still forced to be an assistant senior prefect in Secondary School.
Never mind that I indeed graduated from University with a degree I never thought I would have.
Never mind that a lot of people say I motivate and inspire them with my words,Never mind that people say I have been a blessing to their lives&that I will go places.
Never mind that God Himself says that I will be a blessing to my generation.
Despite all these,the question still burns within me everyday “Am I enough?”
I think I will forever be hounded by it,I think it will never leave,but for whenever it comes,I know the answer with absolute certainty now;Yes,I am enough!
I am beautiful,I am smart,I will touch lives,I will leave the world better than I found it,I will not leave this earth without fufilling my God-given purpose.YES! I AM ENOUGH!
For everyone also plagued by this question,You Are Enough,We Are Enough!#That Is All.
