I grew up in a great home. I was reaffirmed positivity on a daily basis. Yet it took ONE relationship. ONE single relationship to come along, at a young and vulnerable age, to knock me off my feet. It was a wrap. How could ONE relationship undo all of the years of love and support?
My self-worth shattered into a million pieces. Before I was even sure of who I was, I unconsciously allowed another human being to storm into my life, rico suave-like & implant feelings of unworthiness. I stopped valuing myself.
Maybe that’s why I’m so passionate about self-worth today. Because I struggled for close to ten years putting myself back together and rediscovering my value and my worth as a human being.
I lost the truth of who I was. I am, just as you are, priceless. I was made in love. I am love. I am worthy. I am deserving. And I don’t need to do or be anything special to feel that way. I just am. And so are you.
I find a lot of women, in my everyday life, walking past me in the mall or distressed in the grocery store checkout line, who have been put down. Put down. And put down. And put down. To the point where that little light that shined within no longer shines. It’s absent. Because it’s hidden beneath scars and bruises, deep down…
It took me close to TEN YEARS… to finally start FEELING that I was worthy of the life I wanted to live. I was WORTHY of a man who treated me well, who respected and honored me. I was WORTHY of being happy and living a life of ease. I always knew and kept the faith that I would overcome those feelings of unworthiness… because I am not my feelings or my emotions. I am so much more than that. I am strong and brave and resilient. And I’m not ashamed of that. Because I know I will use those qualities that are within me (and within you) to inspire others.
So I’m going to tell you, what I’ve been telling myself. Over and over and over again. Because I will no longer, ever again, in the entirety of my life, allow another human being to let me feel like I am less than whole or unworthy.
You ARE whole. You ARE worthy. You ARE powerful. You ARE a powerful force for GOOD. You ARE light. You ARE love. And God is within you. You are amazing and beautiful and sexy. You ARE whatever the hell you please to be, you choose to be, you desire to be… Who the f*%k cares what another person has to say about you? Their opinion of you is their business and a reflection of their inner world, NOT a reflection of your worth or who you are.
You are profound and inspiring and intuitive. You are divinely feminine, divinely made with divine gifts and abilities and your own unique voice that not one single person in this entire world shares with you. It is yours, and yours alone.
So who are you? Beneath the lies, the hurt, the scars? Can you let those go? Or at least start exercising the thought of letting them go? A lot of us hold onto our past as a form of protection from it happening again.
But here’s a secret for you, they don’t protect you one bit. All they do is further damage your sense of self and block LOVE and JOY, the most amazing and greatest gifts in the world from flowing into and through your life. You are always divinely protected. Because God is within you, whether you recognize it or not. You are always safe. And all is well.
Here’s another secret for you, if you reenact your past experiences that have brought upon you so much pain, and take a step back, as if you were watching yourself on stage in an award winning performance, you would naturally being to detach yourself from the emotions and feelings that experience brought about. While you watched yourself up there on stage, you could also try to figure out what the grander purpose of that experience is and what it was trying to teach you. When you figure that out, that stage will begin to diminish. And you will not identify with that experience or those emotions like before. Now, it’ll just be a small film in your mind, filed away, no different from a simple experience you’ve had like eating breakfast or walking your dog. An experience only has as much power as we give it. And when you realize that, you begin to take back your power.
Cheers to your divine feminine power, ladies.
