Whichever way you define it….it is necessary for our esteem. No not just women, all.
Why did this come to my mind?
I was told recently by someone that I didn’t bring value to their life. Ouch! Yes, a hard ouch, a non stop bleeding ouch, a constant burning ouch. But I did what I usually do… overanalyze the fuck out of why it hurt me so bad. Was it because this was the first time I’ve ever been told that? Was I in shock?
It took me a few days…5 to be exact.
Conclusion: I’m not mad at this person more than I’m mad at myself.
I’ve allowed it to happen, I’ve allowed myself to be bullied or maybe I should say pressured to be less than who I am. I won’t go into why because well that would be me analyzing someone else and I’m in no position to do that.
I do know I’m of value. I’m 100% sure of it.
I value myself so much that I will no longer be anyone but me because then is when others will see my value and eat their own words.
Grrrrrr. Basically just value yourself. There really is no other choice.
If you don’t feel worthy of love, respect, happiness how can someone value you? If you aren’t able to see your own worth, how can you expect that from someone else?
And remember: YOUR VALUE DOESN’T DECREASE BASED ON SOMEONE’S INABILITY TO SEE YOUR WORTH.
