Often times, when we go through challenging situations in life, they can make us feel like a fraction of a person. It can sometimes lead to making decisions for yourself that doesn’t reflect what you deserve in life.
I started thinking about my own story when I wrote these thoughts.
You deserve peace.
You deserve happiness.
You deserve freedom.
You deserve love.
You deserve moving into a healthy life and outlook.
You deserve to pursue the things in your heart.
You deserve to be heard.
You deserve to have a prosperous life where you chase after your hopes and dreams without limits.
I have lately in my life having to remind myself what I deserve in life. What I have learned is some people will try to take your light. Potentially leaving you feeling worthless or that your life doesn’t have meaning. Which isn’t the case. I have been learning is that you have to separate yourself in two ways.
- From the person or people who negatively challenge your worth and value. We all have value, hopes, dreams, worth, and ideas; and should never be treated as anything less.
- If you choose to remove yourself from this type of situation, you must begin to speak positively over yourself and have people in your life that can speak life into you.
- Separate the things that are true about you and what is not correct about you from the other person.
- Some people project their thoughts and feelings onto another person to boost their self-esteem. Just check yourself and who you are and get rid of those negative thoughts from your life.
We all have scars that have a lasting impression on us, but when we can begin to identify our worth in the healing process, that can start to help us move forward in a healthy direction were changes can be made that will lead to becoming a better you.
One way you can begin building your confidence is to identify 5 things you deserve in life. Say them in the morning and at night in front of a mirror. Also, recite them every time you begin to feel low. It will start to reshape your thinking.
