The Invisible Fight

Nowadays, the battles that we fight aren't against each other, but with ourselves. We are fighting an invisible battle known as spiritual warfare, and many of us aren't even aware that we're fighting. It's those conversations that you're having with yourself and telling yourself that you're not good enough, or that you feel as if no one cares about you because of your current circumstances. These types of conversations with yourself build up frustration, anger, and hate. If we aren't careful, we could easily take our frustration out on anyone. We even allow our insecurities to blur our judgment of people and situations. Which causes us to miss out on opportunities or reject the people we shouldn't.  Over time you start to believe that it's you against the world until you can't take it anymore. Thanks to labels and worldly standards it makes it harder to break such a mindset. The good news is that you can win this battle and renew your mind. The bad news is that it takes some time to train your thoughts. I know this because it took me some time to overcame my battles. For the longest of time, I thought I wasn't good enough, that people didn't like me, and that I wouldn't do anything great. Much of my battle was due to insecurities and worldly standards. As a kid, I never really did what other kids did. I just followed the beat of my drum, but that came with loads of criticism from others. Being criticized, at a young age, you start to question yourself and before you know it you doubt your abilities. At this point, you start to feel like an outcast. Then you develop a system where you no longer want to be around people because you're afraid of what they may think of you. The first step to winning this battle is by loving yourself unconditionally. Love every flaw and embrace every insecurity. Once you make yourself aware of that then when someone criticizes you it doesn't bother you, and you no longer question things about yourself. Step two, I can't say this enough, find your purpose. Once you find your purpose, then no one can persuade you otherwise. Last but not least, step three, spend time with yourself. This will allows you the time to get to know yourself and validate who you think you are. All that matters is how you see and feel about yourself. Now, go out and win this battle.
