Don’t forget your value.

Don't forget your value - you are priceless.
You are priceless!

They say that one person’s “trash” is another person’s treasure.  I suppose that could be applied to people as well, couldn’t it?  Are there many people who haven’t been made to feel like we really just don’t matter  to one degree or another at some point in their personal relationships?  I don’t just mean love relationships, I am referring to any type of relationship in which we care enough about someone to actually value what they think of us.

Once we’re made to feel like “trash” it is difficult to then not question how we appear in the eyes of others that we care about.  Here’s the thing though; the perception of others is just that – perception.  The way that they see us is their reality, not ours.  To quote Lee Atwater, “perception is reality”.  When we adopt the reality of others as our own, we forget who we really are.

One person’s perception of us does not constitute reality, especially not our own.  The more we forget that, the more we lose who we are and we devalue ourselves.  We are not going to be of value to every single person we encounter in our lives.  However, to the right person, we truly are priceless.  Most of all, let’s concentrate on how valuable we are to ourselves.  At the end of the day, it is how we see ourselves that matters at all. ~Gia
