I completely relate to where you’re coming from.

Back then, I used to look to other people, people
who I thought would be my friends for life, tell me
what I’m worth. When I was in a long-distance
relationship with someone for 4 years, I was looking
for my partner at the time to tell me what I’m worth.

I realized as time went on though…

It’s a complete error in judgment.

No one can tell you what you’re worth.

Sure, there’ll be people that say nice things,
but there will be people who also say the
most awful, terrible things to you about you.

The sad part is we often believe in the things
people say about us, and we internalize it as fact.

We often look to others, the people in our circle
for validation, but the truth is they can’t give us that.

Nobody can.

Only you.

Whatever you are telling yourself inside your head
on an every day basis, it is so.

If you tell yourself you’re worthless…

You are worthless. Simple as that.

However…

If you change it around and tell yourself
you are worth something, you do have things,
qualities about yourself that you recognize and appreciate…

That will serve you long term.

Quit relying on others to tell you what you’re worth.

Quit asking permission from other people.

The only validation you ever need is your own.

It all comes down to your belief.

Do you believe you’re a worthy human being
deserving of happiness, success, joy, and love?

Whether you believe you are, or you are not…

Either way, you are right.

Be thoughtful of what answer you choose.
