Courting Me in 2016: Week 8 | Know Your Worth!

Fifth Harmony had it right “Baby, I am worth it!” In every relationship you have to know your worth. No, not how much he spends on a fancy dinner or how much you spend on yourself.  In this instance, I am referring to staying true to your beliefs and morals. Knowing what you bring to the table is sexy! It took me a long time to see this.

Do not compromise who you are for another. Cliche I know, however, this week reminded me of this simple concept. People will want you in their lives for a variety of reasons. Trying to filter who truly wants you for who you are is the challenging part. During this journey I have realized that over the years I have worked endlessly to know myself. I am my brand. Who I am. What I want. The things I value in myself and others is what make me, me. I am willing to change for the better but not lose the lessons I have learned along the way for somebody else.

I struggled with decisions that went against what I had worked hard to learn and cultivate.  Nevertheless,  no one else will value you if you do learn to value yourself. This is where I slowly crawl out of the ditch managed to fall in to. For years it was okay for me to tell this to others but I never believed it about myself. It was not until someone challenged me, unintentionally, that I ignited the torch within myself to accept this concept.

I learned to value myself. I know what I bring to the table whether that person knows it or not. I can look at myself and know that who I am and what I have been through have shaped me into the person I am today.

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” -e.e. cummings

Challenge yourself to learn one new thing about yourself each day or to simply embrace one thing about yourself on the daily. We are more than a body. We are a collection of emotions, experiences, and creativity waiting to be explored.

XOXO,

Damaris
