Now that my kids are grown I have been struggling with feeling worth something. What is my niche? What is it I am supposed to be doing? I have been looking for work since last June but because of Covid, it is even harder to find a job that I can do with my disabilities. I have a Social Security hearing coming up soon. Fingers crossed that it turns out positive for me. Still, what do I do with myself. What is my worth? What do I contribute to society as a whole? This is a question that still haunts me.
It's 3:53 in the morning and I can't help but realize that I see myself in you.
We may see something inadequate, or something broken. We notice all that is wrong yet have no idea how to feel like we're worth something spectacular.
That's the thing, we can't see how worthy we are of life sometimes. We define who we are by what we've done or how bad we've screwed up something. Over and over we may come to a place where we can't see the value we possess.
Here is a message I tell myself daily and would like you to know too: You are of value no matter what you are doing or what you've done. You wake up with purpose and will always have purpose. Adequacy, worth, value, peace, joy, calmness, balance, and wholeness is all that is you already. You just have to believe it to be true. Believe in your healing. Believe in your recovery. I love you guys.

When someone leaves you because of your struggle with chronic illness; it doesn’t mean your worth giving up on... it means they aren’t the right people to surround yourself with... never confuse seasonal people with lifetime friends and family... your worth and journey is not defined by others ability to see your worth. Keep going; stay where your loved and supported- don’t stay because they make you feel worthless without them... that’s not love- that’s abuse of a persons soul #PTSDSupportAndRecovery #innerstrength #yourestrongerthanyouthink
If you are ever scared you are not a good person, remember bad people do not care about being better. #worry #Anxiety #Depression #Suicide #Life #live #Hope #MentalHealth #beyondworthy #worth #MentalIllness #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder #psychology #Recovery #positive #EatingDisorder #Anorexia #anorexiarecovery
Think of someone you adore,
Their presence and problems are never a chore.
You want to protect them and see them smile,
Everything about them makes living worthwhile.
What if this person was actually you?
Would you give yourself a hug when you are feeling blue?
Would you care for yourself when you are physically frail ?
and be kind and encouraging when you fail?
Love yourself and you won’t feel so alone,
You will also be braver when you step out into the unknown. #Love #beyondworth #MightyPoets #Poem #Poetry #Selflove #Kindness #worth #Anorexia #Health #Suicide #illness #MentalIllness #help #Inspiration #AnorexiaNervosa #Anxiety #Depression #MentalHealth #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder #Recovery
