rebelling against low expectations

How can I know my worth?


FAITH WRITES: Throughout my life I’ve been emotionally abused and neglected. I’ve been told that I am worthless, and treated as though I am. Because of these things, I developed trust issues and a messed up understanding of what it means to be loved. I’ve never doubted God’s love, but having those lies thrown at me on a regular basis continually hurts the way I see myself.

I know that ultimately my worth comes from God, and that in His eyes I’m flawless. After struggling with these things for so long, that’s not so easy for me to remember all the time. I know that God doesn’t make worthless things, so I’m not worthless, but I struggle with continually having that mindset. How can I always know my worth, even when I’m continually facing negativity?
