Self Worth, Adversity, and Routine.

Happy Sunday Friends!

Today I wanted to go a little more on the serious side of things, and talk a little bit about self worth. It’s something that a lot of people struggle with at times, and we all can question when certain life events take place.

As humans, we are creatures of habit. We go through the motions of our day to day lives, and we come across people on a consistent basis. Psychology itself tells us that just the mere repeated exposure of these people will lead us to like them, but I think this plays a bigger role than we tend to realize when it comes to our interactions with these people. Breaking change is hard. Having the confidence and courage to stand up for yourself in the face of adversity can wear on a persons mind and soul. We come into situations where we stand between a rock and a hard place because someone we see in our everyday lives is treating us badly, and we ask ourselves how to handle the situation. I have been seeing lately that more often than not, people tend to make excuses for these negative people in their lives because it is easier to justify than to stand tall. Not for lack of wanting to, more so because we see these people so often and become so accustom to having them in our lives that we can’t see the other side of things. If we were to stand up for ourselves and not accept the negativity, what would that be like?

I want to challenge the people in my life, the people of the world, anyone needing this right now to stand up and not accept anything less than you deserve. No one in this world has the right to make you feel less than 100% worth it. Your feelings matter, your thoughts matter, and more than that the actions of OTHERS matter. People never have the right to treat you with disrespect. It is ok to set a bar, and hold people to it. It is ok to only accept the best for yourself, and to remind yourself that you deserve anything your heart can dream of. The only way to achieve is to push through adversity. No matter what kind it is.

I am a lover of people with kind hearts, people with great minds, and people who do their best. Remember to do your best in times of struggle, and to not fall down in the face of routine. Remember we get comfortable, and we let that be an excuse to not accept the very best. People come and go in life, but your mind, your body, your well being is forever.

Stand up and be great you guys. Always remember there are people in your life who are standing in the bleachers cheering on your every move. Believe it.
