You are worthy!
One of the reasons I am doing this series is to help inspire people to love themselves. Quite often we shy away from things because of doubt, fear and worry which we talked about the other day, but sometimes hiding behind the wizards curtain is the fuel of worthiness. Do I feel worthy? Am I worthy?
What is worthiness? According to the dictionary, “the quality of being good enough; the quality of deserving attention or respect.” There is nothing wrong with feeling worthy of something or someone. When it comes to relationships , perhaps someone feels they’re out of someone else’s league, but that is a lack of worthiness.
Perhaps there is a goal or a dream you have that you want to pursue, but you don’t, because you don’t feel worthy. So here is goes, STOP IT. You are worthy of anything you want to pursue. It may not always turn out the way you want it to, but if it doesn’t, it could be because it is guiding you down the path you should actually be on. Either way, go for it.
I am a story writer. My mind is filled with characters and battle scenes, and love stories and mystical beings, but people kept telling me that I should write down the advice that I give others and don’t follow (haha!), but I told them, “no, why would people want to hear what I have to say when I can’t even get my own life right?” Truth is, I didn’t feel worthy of sharing my story. I felt like a hypocrite, but never in my mind would I have thought I would even be working on a book about this. Something out of the realm of fiction.
Worthiness is tricky, because there will always be someone saying, “Get your head out of the clouds”, or “stop being a narcissist”, but feeling worthy isn’t your head floating in the clouds, or you making it all about yourself. If done with humility, it is simply you saying to yourself I am worthy of self-love, I am worthy of [fill in the blank]. Don’t ever sell yourself short. Everyone is born with amazing potential, we just sometimes let outside influences cloud our judgement and think for us.
Repeat after me and as needed, “I am worthy.”
