She’s a lot more awesome than she thinks she is. Maybe you are too.

This cartoon (which I found on imgur, but has apparently been all over Tumblr, so attribution would be appreciated) really spoke to me.

I’ve been struggling with feeling … worthy. With feeling that I’m a worthwhile person. With feeling like I’m not the “least worst option” lately.

I recently met someone new who I really enjoy being around.

And when I told her that, she dissembled.  She questioned her own worth, and my judgement.

I know she’s wrong. But trying to get her to believe it … well, I realized it’s very much like trying to get me to believe it as well.

And I know she is pretty awesome, so by association, that means… I might not be completely awful myself.

I’m working on it, I know.

But at least it’s a start.
