Why You Matter

If you’re scared that you don’t matter …

In his song “Turn Around,” Matt Maher talks about being scared that you don’t matter. Whether I verbalize it, I have had this fear many times.

I think it’s behind a great deal of suicidal thinking and ideation, including my own. When you feel like you really don’t matter to yourself, to anyone else, or even to God, it can be a devastating feeling.

So what’s the answer to feeling like this? For me, it has been learning to love myself more and see my problems and fears as less.

Throughout the rest of his song, Matt has some really good advice about “turning around” and realizing it’s not too late (now is the perfect moment) to start on a new path:

If you’re scared that you don’t matter
If you’re lost and need to be found
If you’re looking for a Savior
All you gotta do is turn around
