"She is worth far more than rubies."
This last week I felt as if I have been trapped in a life hiccup. Things just have not been going my way. Which is okay. In the mist of all the hiccups, I've found something far more valuable than rubies... my worth.
One thing I have always preached about is having self-love. I even wrote a paper in college about "The importance of having self-love." Self-love is far more than what you think. Worth is knowing you have love for yourself and realizing it is time to change some things around and do what's best for you. No matter the outcome.
I have been really diving into the book of Proverbs and discovering the power of taking care of yourself. I have always been the type of person to think about everyone else besides myself. I think that's why we get hurt so easily, we are so invested in other's around us that we do not stop to even think about ourself.
Don't get me wrong, it's important to build relationships and help each other as much as we possibly can. But, there are times when we need to take a step back and analyze the situation and figure out if it is worth another emotional pain.
It's okay to choose yourself.
It's okay to make hard decisions for your best interests.
It's okay to let go and try make right.
Life is hard as it is. Do what's best for you, always.
I have invested too much of my time thinking I need to know everything. To be frank, I have no idea where life is taking me. And I am okay with that.
I am okay with not knowing.
But I do know one thing, that we all deserve to be happy. We all deserve to feel worthy of ourselves and to not give up on ourselves. We owe it to ourselves. I am sure everyone has had to make a tough decision for their own best interest. I am sure it was hard but we did it.
The worst thing to feel is not enough. The life you are living can change. You just need to realize how worthy you are. There is not one thing that should stop you from finding inner happiness.
Maybe it's time to simply let go.
Let go of that job.
Let go of that relationship.
Let go of that fear.
Let go of whatever it may be that is stopping you from feeling worthy.
I pray for anyone reading this that has not been thinking of themselves. I pray that whatever circumstance you are going through that you can break free from it. I pray for those that do not feel enough. I pray for those that just need hope.
You deserve a lot more. You deserve to realize that you are far more worthy than rubies.
