KNOW YOUR WORTH

My granddaughter, Brooke, brought this to my attention and I wanted to share it with you.

 

KNOW YOUR WORTH

When someone treats you like you're just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do, because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you. It's not pride - it's self-respect. Don't  give part-time people a full-time position in your life. Know your value and what you have to offer and never settle for anything less than what you deserve.

Hi Wendy,

The work that you do bring love. Thank you for this word and I quote: "Know your value and what you have to offer and never settle for anything else than what you deserve". I agree, and so I choose what I value and what I can offer while I can.

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for sharing your lovely photo and post:-) How have you been doing? I agree with what you're saying, totally, even if it hurts when you're being ignored by someone who is supposed to love you, like family members. It still makes sense.

Hope you're doing well, and having a great day, and week!

Jill,

I totally relate to the family member part you mention. Feels like the largest emotional life challenge to me. Sorry you relate too.

Hi Wendy,

Oh:-( I'm sorry you had to experience that, too, and that you're still overcoming it. It definitely still stings every once in awhile with my family members, but fortunately I don't hear from them that often so in that way it's better. How about you?

My four children have for thirteen years, frozen me out of their lives completely and I havent seen my 5 grand children in 13 years. Why this happened? Cuz my grand children adored me so much and thought I had been put on this planet to spend 24/7 playing with and reading to them. As I look back I know my kids had been brainwashed by my husband since early youth. My mother's goal in life seemed to humiliate and bully daily in private as well as public. I m not a victim type so I know the only way to survive was to silently mantra, "someday I'll show you". And I have.
And of course I have an inner power , life changing I do something much larger than myself. But you also learn to live with a broken heart. . Thanks for answer, Jill. Means a lot to me.

Oh, dear:-( That's very painful.

I'm glad to hear you're not a victim type. It's hard to break out of that cycle. I still even now find myself feeling that way, luckily it gets easier and easier though to get out of it as soon as I recognize it now, however.

Yes, you do!

So, have you reached out to them and they don't want to reconnect? That's too sad:-( I hope you're able to forgive them, if this is the case.

You're welcome. I'm glad that it does.

Hope you have a good, rest of the week.
