The lesson i learnt on a Thursday….
Isn’t it incredible the lessons we learn everyday? My favourite is when you go through something, contemplating why the hell the universe is putting you through that- then that faithful day comes where you realise. Yesterday was that day for me.
Self worth: What a funny notion. As I begin to really discover the meaning of this phrase- I begin to see that a lot of people around me do not even take into consideration their self worth. For me it begins with perception. It may be different for you, but I realised my self worth, by how another person perceived me. It’s really been getting me down. I am a Female Virgo- so when I care about someone, I dive head first. In any kind of relationship. I began to realise that the way a certain person “see’s” me, was affecting me so incredibly to the point where I felt I had to adopt that perception, therefor lowering my self worth.
The way people perceive others, is painted PURELY on what has happened in their life and the experiences they are going through. It could of been an incident, it could of been a sentence you aimlessly said one day. And BAM the perception is created.
So yesterday I discovered firstly why this person sees me in a certain way, lets just say its a “not so positive” light. And I felt like crap for the rest of the day. Because I let myself believe what they think of me is incredibly important to me. However, not everyone is going to see you, and I mean the real you. Some people will always just misunderstand you - and it is not your job to convince them otherwise. You need these people in your life- so the people who really do understand you are more special.
So moral of this ever so long story - is that just because someone’s perception of you is not what you had hoped, doesn’t mean it should destroy your self worth. Everybody makes mistakes- we are all humans and mistakes are how we grow. But from now on, I will not be giving those who are committed to seeing the bad in me, and committed to misunderstanding me and my actions, the power to make me feel anything less than how I should feel about myself. Life is to short to adopt every single bad energy that someone has towards you.
Self worth. Lets all get on board and start loving ourselves. I did yesterday and the universe gave me something so incredibly special last night.
Happy Friday x
