The Meaning of "I Am Enough"

Positive affirmations are a great way to remind us of the goodness within and beyond ourselves. One of the most popular positive affirmations out there is "I am enough."

Celebrities, writers, and influencers often resort to declaring "I am enough" when talking about well-being. However, we may struggle to accept this affirmation as truth because we don't believe it or we don't understand what it means.

In order for a positive affirmation to renew our minds there has to be some level of trust in the meaning it carries. It would be foolish to use a word without knowing what it means and nobody likes feeling foolish.

In this blog post, we are going to delve into the potential meaning of "I am enough" so that we can embrace the power this affirmation has to enrich our human experience.

What Therapy Teaches

Therapy aims to make the unknown known. It is the place to let your guard down so that you can find new understandings, perceptions, and solutions to psychological wounds.

With psychodynamic therapy, the client often travels to their past in order to find an explanation for what is occurring in the present. Navigating our childhood often leads to life-changing realizations like how a traumatic event affects the anxiety someone feels now.

There are answers to adult problems in the examination of childhood experiences. There are childhood moments where self-consciousness, doubt, and judgment were not part of the picture, and we felt like we were truly enough for who we were.

Being More Like a Child

“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:3).

Similar to the wise words of Jesus, we can tap into abundance when we live more like children.

If you've spent any amount of time with children you realize that they are not worried about measuring up to societal standards. Children live in the moment and know that their worth comes from simply existing.

So, how can we make being like a child practical? The answer is simple. When we know our worth comes from just being a unique, complex, human being, rather than doing something special, we are closer to embodying the affirmation of "I am enough."
