“Self worth, or how you feel about yourself, is arguably the most important possession we own.”
A sense of ‘self worth’ and a sense of ‘purpose’ are imperative ingredients that contribute substantially to our overall well being, the neglect of these key components can lead us to a place of emotional bankruptcy.
Let’s take up a short story to know our ‘self worth’
Once a famous speaker had come to a city, and hundreds of people had come to listen to that speaker, the speaker was holding a Rs. 2000 note in front of his audience. Showing that Rs.2000 note to everyone, he asked everyone – “Who wants to get this note?”
Almost everyone answered yes. The speaker said that I will give this note to one of you, saying that he twisted that note.
He asked- “Now who would still like to have it?” Almost all hands were still standing. He then took that note and rubbed it thoroughly with his shoes and then twisted it.
He picked up the note and showed it again in front of the crowd and asked again – “Now who still wants it”, because this time it was messy and twisted. Almost all still raised their hands.
Seeing this, the speaker addressed the crowd and said what did I do with this note, but still you all want to get it, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth Rs 2000. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We may feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
Most of our lives also mess us up in the dirt by giving us similar twists and problems, and because of this, we underestimate ourselves, no matter what happened and what will happen, you are still worthy and priceless to those who do love you .Do not forget and move forward.
Do you find yourself worthy? Comment in the comment section and let me know.
