I have a question for anyone who would like to answer it: Where do we get this ridiculous idea that we are not “worth” our life? That we are not good enough? I’m really curious to know because your life, your mind, and your dreams don’t have the time to be wasted. The world needs you! We only have so many tomorrows and right now is the only time we are guaranteed. So again, I ask, where do we get this ridiculous idea?

I have seen, read, and heard countless images, sayings and songs all of which allude to the fact that we are worth the time and space we are given to experience every good thing life has to offer. But hold on for just one second. While I am extremely grateful for the existence of all of these, I still wonder when it is that we began to believe the contrary.nyone who would like to answer it: Where do we get this ridiculous idea that we are not “worth” our life?

The way I see it, you are one in 6, 775,235,700. You are an incredibly rare, unique, beautiful and essential resource. I truly believe you were not given your life to spend it believing you don’t deserve it. You are here to witness the many miracles that life has to offer, the surround yourself with those you love, and to make a difference in a world.

I beg you, please stop thinking that you are anything less than wonderful. Is that easier said than done? Absolutely. Is it worth the time and work it takes to do so? More than you can imagine. To prove it: take a moment and try to picture what the world would be like if we were all the same person.. If we all looked the same, wore the same style of clothes, spoke the same language, and saw the world in the same way. How boring, right? We would lose everything that makes our world interesting and beautiful. That is exactly why we are all so unique. Without different perspectives, opinions, and experiences, not only would life be extremely dull, we would also lose all the magic and small miracles that comes with it.So here it is, your chance to look yourself in the mirror, say “I’m worth it” and start believing it. To see that amazing person everyone in your life gets to know. You are one of a kind. You are beautiful. YOU ARE WORTH IT! In the wise words of Dr. Seuss “Today you are you. That is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you!”-Cammy
