You are worthy of love and of all good things.
Why do I say this?
Because you are. We all are. Not one more than the other. We are all the same in our worth.
So why do we then think one better than the other? Because we are told that there is such a measure. Being better implies that there is someone worse.
You could argue morally there are some that are worse than others, but doesn’t that just make us better than the actions the supposed worse person is doing?
What is worse and what is better is relative. One person doing worse things than your better may thrive while you feel undeserving. Your better thing may be someone’s worst yet they see you thrive.
What does it feel like to feel unworthy?
Like any pain in your life, any loss or any lack is because you have done something somewhere that you believe a higher power is judging you for. You see yourself as bad, tarnished, imperfect and flawed. Any happiness you do receive or any desires you are delivered come with a price and are fleeting. This makes receiving any blessing scary and you end it before it leaves you so that you’re not caught off guard and disappointed.
You do everything half-fast. Never putting too much effort into anything and always settling for less than your true desire. At times, even your lack of effort is an effort. So you give up.
Within the darkness of giving up there is always a spark of hope. Go to that. The spark is any beauty that you become aware of. A patch of blue sky on a dreary day, a scent of a rose or a beam of sunlight through dust in the air. Let any feeling of beauty and peace be your reminder that you are deserving of more. Let this awaken you.
It is the worthy that believe they are not. It’s only in your goodness and grace that you feel unworthy.
Forgiveness of self and compassion brings a feeling of worthiness.
A lack of worth will raise emotion in you when worth is talked about. Just by hearing the words “you are worthy” may send a twinge of ache through your body. Question that. Feel worthy of love, because you are. Feel worthy of all good things.
