Self-worth

Self-worth is not derived from what you do or don’t do, what job you have or don’t have, the car on the drive or no car, the amount of money you have or don’t have, the possessions you own or don’t, what you look like, how many girlfriends/boyfriends you have had or anything in the past or future or now.

We are all born worthy and we will all die worthy, we are spiritual beings and our soul and energy are not defined by the world and what happens. It is only the mind and the collective mind that tricks us into the illusion that self-worth has to be earnt and can come or go based on our achievements, wealth, number of friends or any other societal measures created to be able to judge us and compare us with others.

If we know that we are worthy no matter what, life is joyful and peaceful in this moment.

Perspective

There is a default position whereby we feel like that only bad things happen to us and life isn’t fair.

That our life sucks and we don’t have what others have.

Comparisons with others only seem to go one way, why do we only seem to look for people ‘better off’ in our minds?

Surely, a sense of perspective would show us that there are people ‘better off’ and there are people who are suffering and a lot ‘worse off’ than us.

Better perhaps to stop comparing with other people at all.

Life teaches us that better or worse off are very subjective and in reality with the right perspective we can all have amazing lives, it’s just a question of your perspective and how you choose to see things.
