If we are always on a path of self-improvement there will always be a sense of lack as there will always be something to improve. Always a need to judge and compare.
If we are on a path if self-acceptance then not only will we have inner peace but we will grow without our ego looking for perfection. We will become our true self and not judge ourselves or compare ourselves to others.
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.
