I Don't Believe You

I don’t believe you.
When you tell me something must be wrong with you, 
that you feel broken or less than good enough,
and that you are the reason you are alone.
I don’t believe you.
You see yourself through the cracked lenses,
of another persons life and some how expect me
to see you the same way they did.
You don’t believe me,
when i say you’re everything you should be
and that all the things and all the pieces
are in all the right proportions.
You don’t believe me.
I see you with my own eyes, 
unclouded by the self doubt you feel
and what i see is clear:
You’re beautiful. 
A wonder.
A treasure that could never be replaced.
You, yes you, just as you are.
You are someone I wish to know. 
You are someone I place value in. 
YOU are someone that a person like me,
would love to call my own.
You don’t believe me when I tell you these things,
and I will never believe those things about you.

This monologue is so beautiful.

It occurs to me that God could say that to each one of us. But we also need to understand other people as saying it.
