Know your worth, who you are and what you deserve. Sounds simple right? Yet so many of find it hard to put this to practice.
Life comes with a lot of give and take. Compromise and understanding but one thing that should not be up for debate is our worth. There are somethings we may want but don’t necessarily need, things we may desire to achieve but life has other plans in our journey. Relationships we may want to keep but are not good for us as individuals. And here is where our self-worth gage needs to step in. I believe knowing your worth consists of recognising your morals, your potentials and your character and learning to meet them at high standard through the things you do, the things life throw at you and the people you keep around you.
In order to know your worth there will always be an eliminate of self-care, self-love and selfishness. Of course we need to learn our worth in the first instance and understand who we are. What do you want to achieve in this life? What do you want in relationships with people around you? Knowing your worth is having the answers to these questions and knowing what is worthy of your time, energy and passion.
While we can comprise for the greater good, we must not take the loss of respect or love in our journey. I mean these are things that make everything worthy right? Feeling genuinely respected and loved. We must always bear in mind how things make us feel, what sets our soul on fire in the best way possible and not sell our self short of our morals and values because we may think our current situation is “the best that we can get”. The universe consists of unlimited space, endless opportunities and a magnificent amount of people. None of us are stuck in receiving less than we are worthy of.
Ultimately, what we accept is what will continue. Our energy, confidence and attitude is our very own currency so spend these things wisely. Practising self-love and knowing yourself along your journey is so important. You dictate your own worth and are the only person who is allowed to do so. It is not something that is decided by your friends, your bank account, weight, the things you are yet to achieve or even your current lover.
No-one else is allowed to have a say on your SELF-worth. Knowing your worth truly comes from you. How you treat yourself will reflect on how others around you will treat you in return. And always remember that if a person or situation treats you badly this is your cue to walk away and let that become a factor of how worthy they are not the other way around. Do not be afraid to have demands and requirements for how you wish to be treated. That is YOUR right and should reflect on YOUR self-worth.
Know your worth and what you deserve by knowing yourself first. The right opportunities, people and love will be there for you.
