What if your real value is based on how you value yourself?
When you value yourself, you teach others that you have value. It sounds like a simple thing to do, doesn’t it?
If you’ve been thinking it works the other way, and have been trying to find your value Out There, rather than within, you’ve been depending on others to tell you what you’re worth. Or, you’ve judged your value based on how you think you compare to others.
Maybe you’ve measured your own worth by how much you get paid, what you have, how your body looks, or who you know. “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” may get you far in certain situations. But it won’t matter who you know, if you don’t know yourself.
Do you have value because others said so, or because you did?
If you are familiar with yourself, and love what you know about you, your energy will be attractive to be around. If you’re running at the vibration of validation, you’ll more easily attract people who want to validate you. Without saying a word, you are letting others know how you expect to be treated.
When you’re validated from within, you are also more fun to be around. People can relax in your presence, because you’re not divided about yourself. You have a vibration of peace running through you.
Your relationship with yourself is the key relationship in your life. Do you take the time to get to know yourself? Do you know what you truly love, and what you really want? Do you value yourself?
Is it okay to just be you, even if others don’t get you, or are critical of who you are? Are you kind to yourself, kind to your body, or do you constantly criticize and find fault with you?
You don’t need to be better than you are right now, or to fix anything.
If you’ve been divided from within, do this: take a step back and notice what kinds of messages you are giving to yourself. Choose to listen to yourself, and to find your true voice within, and you can realize your own value.
Don’t allow any other person to tell you what that is, or should be. Decide for yourself.
