Do We Believe in Ourselves When No One Else Recognizes It?

July 31, 2010

What is My Worth?

Am I attractive enough? Do I have what it takes to be accepted? Social Acceptance is what we all look for in life. Being social allows us to feel appreciated and helps us feel a part of. Naturally, we want people to care about us. We want to have someone be there to build us up.

What is my worth? And is my worth measured by someone’s judgment? What if I told you I listen to love songs to get my compliments? Why do I judge myself and believe that I am not good enough?

These questions are universal and I want to shed some light to all people who think less of themselves than they really are.

Self esteem has a lot to do with our natural make up of people’s judgments. Judgments on themselves and judgments towards others. People do not self-love but see that they are not good enough so in turn, may make others think that they are less than rather than greater than. Young children and teenagers, ranging to adults, feel the need to “fit” in or be a leader of a pact. To do this, they manipulate others by doing something to make them look important. This happens a lot in the work place. I see it all the time.

The most important part of this is love for self, understanding that human nature in all of its flaws can be a beautiful thing. By understanding that  media brainwash and people’s need for power and affluence, shouldn’t make you feel or believe that you are not good enough, skinny enough, thick enough, smart enough or “anything” enough. You should be encouraged to gain wisdom by knowing the habits of man and knowing that we are all a beautiful entity.

We are ever changing so judgments or what others believe have no significance at all. By doubting self you doubt your potential and lose out on the greater things in life that you wish to possess. Smiling and using positive affirmations are essential for growth. No one is a failure, we all make mistakes to learn from them and grow. No one in this life time that’s successful has done everything perfectly. Trust me, many successful inventors and the like have to work extra hard to get something the way they desire it to be.

To everyone out there, please believe in yourself, please love yourself, please cherish yourself, please see the potential in you. Without that, we would all suffer.

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

Buddha quotes (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.)
