Don’t doubt your value

My friends are just…

Okay, so aside from the awkward moment in Blackness last night there was also this:

You know how you go out for your friend’s birthday and you’re having a great time and then something happens to remind you a person that you shouldn’t be thinking of and so you tell yourself to stop thinking of that person and to go find your friend so you can get out of your head and when you do your friend is talking to that person’s doppelgänger and you just want to scream SERIOUSLY???
Yeah, that.

I was talking to a friend about the details surrounding that and he said:

“Dating sucks, but you’re funny and smart and kind and Christ-like, and are and will continue to be appreciated and enjoyed on so many different levels by so many different people.

In the most recent Narnia movie (yes I’ve seen them all, I loved the books as a kid so I see them), there’s a part where one of the girls feels ugly, and constantly compares herself to her older sister, wishing she looked like her. She tries a spell to make herself look like the sister, then Aslan the mystic Jesus-lion shows up and says a line that stuck with me. He says “You doubt your value,” and continues to explain that it was her that found Narnia in the first place and without her, none of the kids would have found it and fulfilled their fabulous destinies.

But that line stuck with me: Don’t doubt your value.
Because you are valuable, maybe not in a way you prioritize at this moment, but don’t forget what those virtues are and don’t forget that those are what make you.”

    So someone else called you Christlike, too?
