Wake Up to Live! You Are Worthy

Wake Up to Live! You Are Worthy 

Wake Up to Live by Desiree Leigh
How many times have you resolved that your value is based on someone's ability to see it?  Perhaps, you don't actually acknowledge this consciously, however if you take the time to reflect on this question, maybe you will find out that you really do base your value on someone else's ability to see it.  

Many of us see our value only when someone else sees it.  Take, for instance, how many friends you get on Facebook; how many Likes you get for your post; what your boss or professor says to you or doesn't say to you at work or university, respectively.  Many of us will deny that this (the examples I have mentioned) does not affect how we feel about ourselves (our worthiness), but I'd like to call their bluff.  

There is a negative effect when we stay in denial.  When we deny this to our authentic Self, nothing can change from within.  Our value, thus, will always be based on someone's inability or ability to see it.  It is one thing not to acknowledge your distorted self-concept in public, but if you don't acknowledge this current truth to your self, you stay in the dark and what you want or hope to change cannot.

Once you realize and accept your distorted belief--once you put it in the forefront--which could be that your value does decrease if someone does not see it, you now have the ability to change, to reprogram, what is distorted to the correct version.  This process is actually quite simple, but it takes work; it takes effort.  The acknowledging itself is usually the struggle.  It's moving past denial and speaking the truth to what is 'really' happening inside your brain--your thoughts.  

In order to Wake Up to Live Life fully you must be honest with your authentic Self.  This can be the most humbling process you will ever experience, but it is worth the effort! 


I invite you to leave a comment below.  Let me know how you liked my post and what sorts of posts you would like to see more of. 




Wake Up to Live is about awareness in every aspect.  Waking up to live life is about questioning the social norms and the things that feel uncomfortable to talk about.  Wake Up to Live is about becoming awake to our biases, prejudices, and injustices. Waking up to live life is about waking up from unconsciousness to see what is really true.  Although waking up to live life with awareness and clarity may be difficult to do because now we must begin to make the hard choices, we must strive to Wake Up to Live and be responsible for our actions and the actions of others.  We are in this life together!
