Reclaim your worth

Peace is most ravaged when we convince ourselves that we were treated badly by others, or by someone we trusted, because we weren’t good enough for them.

A betrayal of trust, no matter how noble the person, reflects cowardice on their part.

We only betray the trust that others place in us when we feel burdened by that trust, or we avoid accepting the responsibility that it demands of us.

Either way, it’s a shortcoming on the part of the betrayer, not the betrayed.

Sometimes we’re so focused on getting even with those who betrayed our trust that we fail to notice how that fixation distracts us from fulfilling the rights of others, which in itself is also a betrayal of trust.

Understand the internal struggle of those who treated you badly, so that you will realise that they were simply incapable of being better than that in that moment.

It may not take away the disappointment or the hurt, but that is part of your humanness.

When that disappointment overwhelms your joy in life and steals your enthusiasm for the future, it’s no longer because of how someone treated you,it’s because of how you see yourself because of how they treated you.

It’s that easy to give up your power to influence the outcomes and the happiness that you experience in life.

You do so by believing that how you were treated by troubled souls is a reflection of your worth.

That’s simply ingratitude for who you are.

Misplacing your trust in someone is a mistake made from good intentions.

Discard the mistake after learning from it. Don’t discard the good that inspired that good intention.

It always starts with you.
