Throughout the course of our lives, we encounter challenges that cause us to question our identity. A verbally and/or physically abusive relationship may have caused you to question your value. A parent’s abandonment may have caused you to question your ability to be loved. Company layoffs may have caused you to question your skills and capabilities. Whatever the challenge, it is often difficult to prevent the hardship from negatively influencing your self-worth.
Resist the urge to allow life hurdles to give you a sense of mistaken identity. View each challenge as an opportunity for self-discovery, growth and development. You were created with a unique set of identifying characteristics and no situation should diminish what God has created.
