God is in love with you; He is in love with your individuality, it’s His perfect masterpiece.

Do not despair, dear heart, but come to the Lord with all your jagged wounds, black bruises, and running sores. He alone can heal, and He delights to do it. It is our Lord’s office to bind up the brokenhearted, and He is gloriously at home at it.
The true mark of maturity is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.
