I am worthy because I exist

I am worthy because I exist

At times, life has a way of challenging me in ways that make me question my self-worth. But when these trials come, they provide me with opportunities to reflect on my own worthiness.

I ask myself, what does being “worthy” really mean? A little research informs me that being worthy means that I am “good,” “deserving,” and “right.” If I believe that we are all born basically good, then I, too, am good and worthy of living.

When I think about my self-worth, I recognize that I am a human being who is “equal” in all general aspects to other human beings.

Although my character is unique and sometimes flawed in its own special ways, I am still worthy of life.

Perhaps there are people in my life who send me negative messages about my own worth. When I feel that others are putting me down, I reflect on these situations as they occur. Then, I make clear decisions regarding how to respond. I use tact and care as I protect my self-worth by standing up for myself with others.

I am worth it. Why? The reason is simple: everyone “matters.” Regardless of what I do or any shortcomings I might have, I still have self-worth. In essence, I am worthy because I exist.

Today, I plan to take the time to list all my positive characteristics. I unearth my inner self to identify all things good about me. Regardless of the length of that list, I intend to celebrate my own self-worth today.
