Your body is nothing
but a home for the
heart, and if they
cannot fathom value
past your skin, they
do not deserve to
be let inside of you.
They do not deserve
to touch the walls
of the place in which
that beautiful, bleeding,
giving thing resides.
“do not ever let them tell you that you are not good enough” 
Emma Bleker

My heart bleeds a lot, no question. But is has neither strength nor courage. Which makes me wonder about the last line. They don't tell you you're not good enough... but sometimes... you know it anyway.

Oh Jo.
You ARE good enough. You are good through and through.

Ah Jo, big hug.
It's a pointless struggle. I know it very well. I try to remember there's no point feeling shame about everything. It eats energy. All the energy you put into feeling bad you could put into doing something fun and getting back to where you want to be. (Easier said than done, I know.)
