To thine own self be true

This above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night the day. Thou canst not then be false to any man.

– Shakespeare

Self worth

What does it mean to know your self worth?Is it merely about self-esteem and self respect? No…it’s waaaaay more!

Knowing your self worth is about self love. It’s knowing exactly who you are, and loving that person flaws and all. Its about acknowledgeding your weaknesses and not allowing them to make you any less than who you should be. Its about knowing your strengths and using them to build yourself. It’s about knowing what you deserve and putting it out into the universe by how you carry yourself. When you know who you are and love that person…there is nothing anyone can do or say to shake you down. Neither praise, nor discouragement…because you KNOW your worth.

This has been my favourite life lesson. Getting to know myself took 25years lol…amd I’m still learning. Its been a long journey. The hardest has been getting to know those parts of myself I would rather keep hidden. Little did I know that I was empowering them by not facing them. And now that I have…I have never loved myself more. I love the person I am. My vulnerabilities make me who I am…they don’t make me any less…

I know who I am, I know what I am worth…and its my responsibility to make sure the universe doesn’t get it twisted.
