Quotes about Not Being Good Enough

Let these quotes about not being good enough help you to recognize that no one else's opinion about you or about your life matters. You are "good enough." You are always more that good enough. You are a miracle. You were created perfect. You deserve to believe in yourself.

I earn scorn; I earn hate; I'm no good; I disgust."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Tonight, late, when I'm still not done with the day

"Fair" is not a useful concept.
Life is not "fair."
You can't make life "fair."

in the name of life being "unfair."
And Life is still not "fair."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The good news is that you aren't
as important as you thought you were.

The world will still be there tomorrow -
as good and as bad as ever.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

dance you want for today -
perhaps a gentle loving dance.

is NOT my responsibility.
There are more than enough things that are my responsibility.

what anyone else thinks or does.

If you doubt the virtue in self-honor,
remember what the flight attendant says,
"Put your own oxygen mask on first."
You are of no use to anyone else
if you have not taken care of your own needs first -
this includes your own emotional,
as well as physical, well-being.
In addition, your greatest value to your children,
your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
- Sheri Rosenthal

Drop guilt! - because to be guilty is to live in hell.
Not being guilty, you will have the freshness
of dewdrops in the early morning sun,
you will have the freshness of lotus petals in the lake,
you will have the freshness of the stars in the night.
Once guilt disappears you will have
a totally different kind of life, luminous and radiant.
You will have a dance to your feet
and your heart will be singing a thousand and one songs.
- Osho

For those men who, sooner or later, are lucky enough
to break away from the pack, the most intoxicating moment
comes when they cease being bodies in other men's command
and find that they control their own time,
when they learn their own voice and authority.
- Theodore H. White

So your father, or your mother,
never thought you were good enough - SO WHAT?
