I KNOW MY WORTH, DO YOU?
Updated: Dec 18, 2019
"I know my worth!" Saying these words to myself has brought profound clarity. Understanding how much I value myself and how much more I need to value myself has opened the door to a lot of self-love and appreciation.
My truth is a lot of the time I looked to people to determine my worth. I needed them to let me know that I was good enough. But when you place something as important as your self-worth on something as fickle as human beings, it is a recipe for disaster.
Knowing your worth, is knowing who you are to your core. It is knowing what you want for yourself and respecting it. It’s choosing yourself over and over again. It’s attracting and sustaining things of value to yourself. When we speak of worth we are not only speaking of material things, we are speaking about how you treat yourself and how you allow others to treat you.
Your worth is derived from how much you value yourself. This is what you communicate to people and the vibe they get off you. Its very easy to beat your chest and say that you know your worth. It’s very easy to say what you deserve but when it comes will you receive it with open arms or will you feel like a phony? Will you graciously accept it or continue to live in situations that do not serve you. And when you are not receiving what you deserve, will you speak up for yourself and ask for what you deserve? It’s time to stop playing small by staying in situations that do not meet your value because the world has convinced you this is as good as it is going to get. It’s not and deep down you know it’s not.
We need to start saying more things like;
· Because I know what I am worth, I will take this job or leave one that doesn’t fulfill me
· Because I know what I am worth, I will ask for more money
· Because I know what I am worth, I will allow my partner to spoil me without feeling guilty.
· Because I know what I am worth, I will leave this relationship because after communicating my needs they’re still not being met.
When you know your worth and allow yourself to be in situations where you are valued, you’re unlocking a new level of personal power within yourself. You are telling yourself that you want the best for yourself. And that’s a great place to start.
P.S if you feel like you’re asking for too much, you’re asking the wrong people. PERIODT!
