To be seen for our heart–who we really are, and who we have the potential to become–is a beautiful thing. This video (set to the music of Mindy Gledhill) has a charming message about seeing past someone’s scars to their lovable and valuable core.
I’ve been thinking about how much time and energy we can spend trying to measure up, fit-in, and prove our worth to others. At some level, I think we can all get caught up in these anxiety/fear-driven efforts, only to feel more drained, lonely, and discouraged. We can work so hard to prove through outward efforts (e.g., how we dress, how hard we work, how much money we make, etc) that our inner person—who we are—is capable, competent, and lovable.
It is very possible that someone in your life sees only their own scars and deficiencies, and feels that he/she is not worthy of being loved, right now, as they are. Does anyone come to mind? If so, perhaps this video and its message hold a calling for you: Reach out today. Let this person know what you see and value about their core–not what they do, but who they are.
You can make a difference today.
