[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] You ALONE decide your value
To truly be free, we must choose beyond simply surviving adversity, we must
dare to create lives of sustained optimal well-being and joy. Bell Hooks
There's no one else that gets to determine what you allow into your life
other than you. You always have a choice for how high your bar is. So, take
responsibility for your own greatness and aim really effing high.
Your value (of yourself) is literally all that matters. It's the one thing
that no one gets to decide for you, ever.
Not ever. No matter how they talk to you. No matter how they pay you. No
matter what they think of you. No matter if you're hired. No matter if
you're fired. If you're dumped or have a line of suitors. Whether the
trolls think you're ugly and dumb. Or the drunk dude squeezed your ass in a
bar. If they think you're writing is shitty. Or if they all left you out of
the big plans. If he thinks you're too much. If your family is shunning you
for forgetting where you came from. If you got the 17th rejection letter.
So when you do decide your value is higher than the Himalayans (because it
is)...It will change everything. You'll feel so empowered to have all the
conversations you need to have. You won't second-guess asking for more
money or flexibility. You won't think twice about telling him that his lack
of communication isn't good enough for you no matter how much you like him.
You won't wince at speaking your opinion. You'll be OK with people knowing
you're concerned. Asking for different terms. Or telling someone what you
need. Because you value you. You know what you need. You honor what your
heart is asking for. When you've determined what's good enough for you,
settling won't be on the table. Ever.
