I used to look for my worth in relationships with men, in accomplishments, in clothes, shoes, and handbags. I would go to the mall swiping my card as if I could buy my worth. It all worked for a while. Then, something would happen and I’d find myself maxed out and emotionally bankrupt.
They say no pain, no gain. Well, all that pain. All those disappointments pushed me. The pain from feeling like I wasn’t enough pushed me to want a breakthrough. To fight for freedom from my emotional struggles. To move above and beyond my emotional limitations. I wasn’t just disappointed in other people that I’d felt let me down. Mostly, I was disappointed in myself.
Deep down I knew I was worth more than I was giving myself credit for. And I knew that I had some serious healing work to go through. I had to get over hurts from my past. I have to forgive myself for the mistakes that I’ve made in my search for self worth.
Self worth comes from self. Duh?! I know, this seems like common sense. Unfortunately, so many of us walk around waiting for people and conditions to validate our worth. You may be waiting for that stamp of approval to say “I’m worth it!”. Significant others, jobs, titles, social media likes, and money don’t make you worthy.
You are already worth it! The simple idea that you’re breathing says that some force that is larger, stronger, bigger and more powerful than any human believes you are worth life. No matter what you’ve done or what’s been done to you. You are always worthy. It’s not something you earn. You’re born this way!
