Chapter 4 of the book is a more in depth study on forgiveness. This is a quote from Chapter 5:
“We also doubt God loves us because we don’t think we are good enough. We’ve all had someone in our lives who told us that we aren’t pretty enough, smart enough or we weren’t good at anything. It may have been a parent, or a teacher or a friend. This was the initial cause of our low self esteem. But those people just didn’t/don’t see our potential. They didn’t see how well you could draw or sing or paint or write computer code or give advice. Everyone does something well, God just has to reveal it to you and then you will see just how good you are. You may know what it is but just haven’t shown it to the world yet. Are you afraid that no one will like what you are or what you have done? If God has given you this gift, it is something that is meant to be shared not hidden. Do not hide your light! (Luke 11:33)”
The title of the chapter is “Don’t Let Other People Change Your Self Worth.” There are people that make themselves feel better by making others feel bad. And unfortunately, if your self-esteem is already bad, it just makes you feel worse. Then your negative tapes start all over again. But God does not want that for you! God wants you to love yourself as much as He loves you! He says you are “fearfully and wonderfully made,” “You are His MASTERPIECE!” DON’T LET THE WORLD DICTATE WHO YOU ARE AND BASE YOUR SELF-ESTEEM ON THE ONE WHO CREATED YOU. And this negativity may be holding you back from doing what God wants you to do. There are some visual exercises like the Favorite Body Part Exercise and the Velcro Exercise in “You are God’s Masterpiece!” that can help you overcome those obstacles and transform your negative tapes into positive ones. Or send this post to a friend who needs a self-love transformation.
