Many people believe and love God, yet don't celebrate and believe in themselves?

Woman of Purpose
You say you love God?
You say you believe in God?
But do you love yourself?
Do you believe in yourself?
"When God created you He said it was good",
Many people believe and love God, yet don't celebrate and believe in themselves?
I believe this is one of the obstacles in walking out your purpose. When God created you He said it was good, He created you unique, in His perfect image and likeness, with your unique talents and gifts yet we try to meld in and be what everybody else is doing or what other expect from us. My revelation. (I got to be honest here). We try so hard not to be like the world. But how many of us get lost in being like everybody in church. There is a culture in the world but there is also a culture in the church. We got to be careful that we do not become religious like the religious people back in the days of Christ. They all dressed the same, talked the same, walked the same and preached the same. They had beautiful words but no revelations. Their lives did not represented anything what God stands for. Love and acceptance. When was the last time you genuinely spoke, listened and show interest in that person in church but also to that man or woman outside in the world. Christ didn't look like nobody, He walked with all people, the prostitute, the liar, the thief, the prisoner and He never judged them. His ministry was also not limited by the four walls of the church building. He was out there!. He rocked His own outfit and talked totally the opposite of what the high priest were preaching. He only did what the Father told him and He embraced his uniqueness. He knew who He was with confidence. He didn't shy away from who He was and what He was born to do! And the most beautiful of His character, He never placed himself above anyone and with dignity he would also serve.
Revelation: Don't forget to love yourself? How do you do that? Start with being honest with yourself? How do you talk to yourself, How do you talk and treat other people? Are you positive or constantly tearing people down. This is a reflection of your own self worth. If you cannot celebrate somebody else that means you cannot celebrate yourself. Pray and ask God to get to the root of this and to create in you a clean heart and a right spirit. Than start speaking life into yourself, tell yourself all the things God would tell you? Start being thankful for what you have instead of looking at what you miss. Encourage yourself? Allow yourself to live and enjoy life? Eat and have a healthy lifestyle. Get rid of all the toxic thoughts and words you speak to and over yourself. Believe in yourself, take leaps of faith, listen to your heart desires and dreams. God gives you them, allow them to live. When you do that you embrace who God created you to be. Be your Unique self! You are created in His image and in His likeness. Look in the mirror and see God in you.
Genesis 1:31 
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Have you too forgot at one point to believe in yourself? What did this do to you and how did you tackled it?
