Low self worth is displayed in our countenance. The way we present ourselves. Do you walk with your head down? Do you smile? Do you always have a negative attitude? Do you choose to not take care of your body? These are all indications of low self worth. When we behave this way, it is an open invitation for others to treat us poorly. If we don’t respect ourselves or even love ourselves, how could we expect someone else to love and respect us. The problem is that we do expect others to love us when we don’t love ourselves. We look for love in all the wrong places.
Examples of low self worth: A man/woman wants to have a baby so bad because they wish to fill a void of having someone love them. We keep people around us who treat us poorly and dishonor us but because we don’t feel like anyone else will love us, we accept the behavior. We enter into relationships with people of the same sex because we were hurt someone from the opposite sex so we hope they will love us. We stay in a marriage with a spouse that doesn’t love us for convenience because we don’t want to be alone. These are just some of the examples of how we settle in our lives because of a lack of self love. The question now becomes why is it that so many of us don’t love ourselves. What do we do differently so we can start loving ourselves again which will attract other people who will love us too.
First step Sit and evaluate all of your relationships. Are they filled with love? Do the people you surround yourself with have your best interests in mind? Is the relationship a co-dependency?
Second step Ask, what are my fears if I let this person go? What am I afraid of? What would it take to release this person from my life?
Third step -Return to love
Look in the mirror. Write down of your mirror everything that you love about yourself. Keep it there for as long as it takes to remind you of what you love.
I can assure you, using the power of your words and with conviction, you will become lol of those things over time. This is the first powerful step towards self-love You are simply reminding yourself of who you are and who you were created to be. It is a call to action to return to love. Be rare.
