I have a challenge for you.
The challenge is simple, it's just "Remember the Gospel".
What that means is that when people put you down, when they tell you that you aren't good enough, when they tell you that you are a failure. Remember the Gospel. Remember that they are right. Remember that that is why Jesus came. He came because we aren't good enough, we aren't perfect. He knew we would fail, that's why He came. He came so that we could be forgiven when we fail.
So when people tell you that you aren't good enough, that you're a failure, tell them that they are 100% right. That you aren't good enough, and that you know that you fail. And then tell them about Jesus. Tell them that it's okay, because Jesus came so that you could be forgiven. And you are forgiven. If you have accepted Him as your personal Savior, He has forgiven you for not being good enough, for failing, and for missing the mark. And His is the only opinion that matters in eternity.
Just remember the Gospel and you'll be okay.
