Yes, I do not have to know you to answer that. You are beautiful, you are wonderful, you are you and there is no one else like you. If you ever need to talk I'm here.

Of-course you are good enough! No-one will ever be perfect. Everyone is special in their own way. Your strength might be someone's weakness. His strength might be your weakness. This is what makes us all unique. We all are good enough in our own ways. Although, it might take time to accept it. But, I can assure you that you are good enough :)

Yes! You will always be good enough. Maybe not in everything, but no one is perfect. I'm not good at government or actually keeping money in my bank account. I'm also not good at keeping my self esteem high, but who actually is? Moral of this is that you will always be good enough for someone willing to look past your imperfections. Don't settle

You are always good enough. Don't let anyone or anything tell you you're not because they're wrong. I had many people tell me i was worthless and that I was never good enough! But i didn't listen and I kept fighting and you will too! (:

Nobody is doing better than you because nobody can do better than you, Where you are right now is a necessary step, Every day brings a choice: to practice stress or to practice peace, You are always good enough to try, and that’s what’s important in the end, You don’t need to get everyone’s approval first. – Stop listening to what the world says you should want. Start listening to who you are. Truth be told, there are only a few people in this world who will stay 100% true to you, and YOU should be one of them.

Of course, you are. Always know that you are unique, and among every single people on earth, you are you, there's nobody like you. You are capable of doing everything and anything, you just need to believe in yourself and have faith. No matter where you are from, what you do, what your background-race-religion is, you are a human, and you are just good enough for being yourself. The first identity of yours would be that you are a human and you are the person who has to take the responsibilities for everything.

There's a Julian Barnes short story that I forget the name of, about waking up in heaven. It's like waking up in a swanky hotel, to breakfast in bed--the most perfect breakfast you can imagine. If there's anything you don't like it changes magically to something you do. The rest of heaven is more of the same--you play golf, go shopping, meet famous people, do whatever you want, and everything is just the way you like it. Eventually you get kind of restless and nervous, and you ask your concierge-type lady where God is, and if you're ever going to get judged. She says she can arrange that, and the next day brings you by limo to an office building. God is sitting behind a desk looking busy, and you go up to him feeling apprehensive and shy. He looks up at you, says, "You're okay," and goes back to his paperwork.

Of course you are! Personality, beauty... they all depend of point of view. If someone wasn't into you, never think YOU were the problem, like if you weren't enough for them or something. You'll find someone who will fufill your need and love you for who you are.

You are as good as you think yourself up to be. Only you can be the true judge of your character.

You are always good enough. Your value isn't measured by others' negative thoughts. You will always be priceless. There's only on of you. No one in this world will ever be exactly like you. You're special. You're original. You're unique. You're certainly more than good enough.

You are always good enough, you only feel not good enough because you see flaws in yourself and don't want to fix them. You also feel like you aren't goof enough because you care about what others think instead of what you think of yourself. All that truly matters is what you think. If you think your good enough, you are.

'Am I good enough?' That was the first question when I got depression. I asked myself this question almost every night, before sleep. I thought about everything I did in my life, every mistake and I was totally down. I burts into tears and can't sleep for hours. After therapist's, friend's and family's help I stopped ask this question. I know that I'm good, that I'm good enough at everything that I try, everything that I do.

Simple answer is... YES! You, me, everyone is good enough! We have to realise that, at times, we allow ourselves and other people to set their expectations to high of us, so it's impossible to achieve but the only expectations that matter are your own. You are the only person you need to be good enough for so, yes, you are good enough if you want to be.

You are the best at being you. No one is ever good enough to be who you are. So be proud of who you are and own up to the person you are because in this world, there is no other person that is exactly like you.

We all make this question at one point in our lives. Is what I am doing good enough for this or that? Am I worth it? How could it be... when I have so many flaws? There's some news for you. We all have flaws, we all are humans. Everyone has a purpose and doing your best will always be good enough. :)

Of course. Everyone is worthy. We all want to be "good enough" but it's up to us to decide if we are or not, no one else.

Yes! You are good enough for those who are lucky enough to realize and appreciate it, because those are the ones who matter. Be kind to yourself my dear and do not question what you already know, that you are good enough and you are not obligated to meet other peoples expectations. just your own.

You are good enough, in fact you're more than just good enough, you're beyond good enough, you're amazing. If people can't see that then they're the one's that aren't good enough for you.

Yes, you're always have to think you're enough for yourself, don't let anyone make you think otherwise. If you have faith that you're good enough for you, you need nothing else.
