In a world driven by appearances and external validation, it's no wonder that many of us struggle with feelings of worthiness.
We often find ourselves chasing after fleeting moments of validation, hoping that they will fill the void within us and make us feel "enough." But what if I told you that self-worth is not something you can simply feel?
It's not an emotion to be sought after, but a fundamental truth that resides deep within each of us.
Picture this: You're standing in front of a mirror, staring at your reflection, and a wave of doubt washes over you. Thoughts of inadequacy flood your mind, and you can't help but wonder if you're truly worth anything.
If this sounds familiar, you're not alone. We all struggle with the notion of self-worth, constantly seeking validation and assurance. But here's the truth: self-worth is not a feeling—it's a fact. And just like knowing you're human, it's time to embrace this reality and let go of the need to "feel" it.
We live in a world where we are bombarded with messages that feed our insecurities. Social media, societal expectations, and even our own inner critic constantly remind us that we need to be more, do more, and have more in order to be deemed worthy. This creates an endless chase for external validation, hoping that one day we'll stumble upon that magical feeling of self-worth. But here's the kicker: it doesn't work that way.
Imagine if we relied on feelings alone to determine our existence. Do you feel human, or do you know you're human? Think about it. We don't wake up every morning questioning our humanity or waiting for a feeling to confirm it. We accept it as an undeniable fact. The same principle applies to self-worth.
So, what sets self-worth apart from mere feelings?
Self-worth is not subjective; it's not contingent upon external circumstances or fleeting emotions.
Instead, it's a solid foundation rooted in recognizing your inherent value as a human being. Just as you don't need to "feel" human to be human, you don't need to "feel" worthy to be worthy. It's an unshakable truth that remains constant, regardless of how you may feel in a particular moment.
Think of self-worth as an unwavering fact, much like the Earth revolving around the Sun. Just because you can't "feel" the Earth moving doesn't mean it's not happening. Similarly, your self-worth doesn't vanish just because you can't "feel" it at every moment. It's there, whether you acknowledge it or not.
Now that we've debunked the myth of self-worth being a feeling, it's time to embrace this empowering truth. Recognize that your worthiness is an inherent quality, not something you need to chase or earn. It's not dependent on external validation or the opinions of others.
So, let go of the need to "feel" it and instead focus on recognizing, nurturing, and celebrating your worth. You are worthy, and that's a fact that can't be shaken. You were born worthy, now what are you going to do with that fact?
Sending you so much love,
