No matter what you do or how good you do it, there are always people who will be dissatisfied with you, criticize you and try to change you and claim that you need to change.
If you are always listening to other people’s voices and opinions and try to change yourself to please others, you will end up lost, confused and with an identity you can’t identify yourself with. You will end up living for others and you won’t walk the right track that leads you to the fulfillment of your life purpose.
Walk The Narrow Path that leads to God, by being yourself and not being what everybody else is or wants or expects you to be.
HOW PEOPLE ACT WHEN THEY DON’T FEEL WORTH OR VALUE
When people don’t feel worthy or valuable they start searching for value outside of themselves. Many start seeking approval from others through accomplishments; the more they accomplish the more valuable they feel. This is especially a trait in workaholics; their worth is in what they do and what they achieve, rather in who they are and their personality.
When people feel like they’ve been disrespected, picked on, stepped on and hurt too much, they compensate with telling themselves: When I get more money, when I buy that car or that house, then I will get happy. When I have that job, or when I’ve accomplished or reached that goal, then I will get happy. When I lose that weight, when I buy that dress, when I buy those shoes, then I will feel better and then I will feel happier. Then I can feel some worth and value.
When people don’t feel good about themselves they start to be jealous of what somebody else got, and qualities and things other people got, that they would like to have. And to feel better about themselves they look for mistakes, faults and imperfections in other people that they are jealous of, to feel better about their own weaknesses and mistakes and the things they feel they lack. Not understanding that they are everything they are supposed to be, and everything they need to be, and that the best of them already lies within.
You worth and value comes from who you are made by God. If you have a newborn baby in your hands, do you think of that baby as a being of no value? Do you see that baby as worthless because he/she doesn’t have any accomplishments, fashion clothes, money or wealth? The baby is of great value without those things, and so are you to God. Or what if you had a 100 dollar in your hand, and you crumbled it or stepped on it would you consider it less valuable? No you wouldn’t, it would still have the same value. And so do you have.
You are not your mistakes, you are not your failures, and neither are your accomplishments or your profession. What you are is a valuable soul and being made by a God that loves you regardless of what you’ve done or haven’t done.
God made You and every single person the way they are for a reason, everybody has a different life purpose, different gifts and talents and comparing yourself with others will always have the same result and that is misery. Comparing yourself will always make you feel less worthy, valuable or loveable, because there will always be someone out there that got something you want, and dream of having. There will always be somebody that’s better at you in something, and jealousy won’t solve that it will only make it worse, the only solution is acceptance- acceptance of yourself. To accept everything you are and everything you’re not.
And instead of trying to be somebody you’re not get good at being yourself, because nobody can’t play your role and your part any better than You!
