What were the circumstances that contributed to the person you are today? What do you believe about yourself based on what others have told you? How were you treated?
Both the moments when you felt valued and the moments when you felt unloved defined your history and path in life. You are still here, having survived your journey and what an amazing journey your life has been. Remember, your journey is yours alone, so own it.
Even if you lived through an unloved childhood, or a painful loss of a loved one, there is still only one irrefutable truth: we are all responsible for our own decisions – no other person is or ever can be.
It’s important to know your past history and why you feel the way you do so you can work at healing the wounds of your past. Until you do, you are literally dragging the weight of your past into your present life. And that my friend makes it nearly impossible to move forward in a positive way.
Your life isn’t guaranteed to be free of pain, stress and loss. But it is a journey of learning to love yourself first and then extending that love to others.
What would you do if you were without fear: afraid of making a mistake, feeling judged, looking foolish or being alone?
No one is accountable for your happiness. You’re wasting your time if you are waiting for someone to give you your self-worth.
You must be fearless enough to give yourself the love you deserve. Every day brings opportunities for a new path, for creating a new history that tomorrow you can look back at with pride.
You are worthy – own it – know it!
