It takes a lot to learn how to value yourself.
Your quirks, differences, and uniqueness are extremely special.
Somethings I have learned along the way are outlined below and I know they will help you value yourself.
Treat Yourself Like Would Treat Your Best Friend.
In life, we make up the meaning behind the actions we take.
We internalize and analyze our decisions and then create opinions like those of a martyr.
Why? If these actions were taken by your best friend, you would have a completely different response.
You would be kind, loving, and forgiving, so from here on out, I encourage you to do the same for yourself.
Ignore the Shitty Committee
We all have voices in our heads.
And some we need to listen to more than others.
The ones that are not encouraging and cheering you on are from an ego-based thought process.
The ego wants to keep you small, safe, looking good, being right, being in control, and come nowhere close to fulfilling your destiny.
I took a class once that taught me to name these little voices something silly so that I could politely tell the said name, ie Controlling Cathy, to “Thank you for caring but f*ck you for sharing.”
Seems harsh yet that voice is not being your best friend, so you get to ignore it.
Oddly enough, it makes you laugh rather than becoming fearful of those thoughts.
Share Your Uniqueness
No two fingerprints are the same.
And no two people have the same gifts, personalities, passions, or purposes driving them through this life.
I want you on fire every day of your life sharing your uniqueness with the world.
Your mark on this world isn’t just the success in business, the title you display, or the money in your account.
The mark you make is in sharing your light with others.
So laugh out loud, sing at the top of your lungs and make those awkward jokes because that is exactly what people will remember about you and what you will most value about yourself at the end of your life.
You mean so much to us, and it’s time you began to value yourself as we value you.
Holding you in high regards,
