“Believing you are worthy of love means that you believe I deserve to be treated well – with respect and dignity. I deserve to be cherished and adored by someone. I am worthy of an intimate and fulfilling relationship. I won’t settle for less than I deserve. I will do whatever it takes to create that for myself.” -Suze Orman

Sometimes life surprises you. You wake up one day and realize that things are going pretty well for you. 2011 was full of struggles for me, most of which involved inner-battles with myself. How did I screw up? What did I do wrong? What could I have done right? What was wrong with me? However, I think I have come full circle and realized that was never the point. The divorce wasn’t my main issue last year, but it was a direct link to the real problem. I didn’t think I was worthy. I didn’t feel worthy and since I felt unworthy I was ok with living in an unhealthy marriage. I was going to settle for what I thought I deserved. I was going to suck it up and live with the consequences of my actions. I look back and realize that coming to the decision to separate and get a divorce was one of the most difficult decisions of my life, but today I am able to look back and realize that it was the start of something new. It was the start of me believing that I AM WORTHY. I’m not perfect. I have my faults. I can be selfish. I can be rude and not even mean it. However, I give my all to the people who I love. I work hard. I am funny. I don’t like to hurt people. I live this life once and I am going to live it right. I’m seeing someone right now that sees the good in me. He sees that I am worthy. It’s an amazing feeling to finally see myself as others see me.
I AM WORTHY.
