Are you really taking good care of yourself? Maybe, deep down, you believe that you don’t deserve better.
It may not even be conscious …
Perhaps you felt that you had to lower your potential, in order to get the approval from your brother or sister, because otherwise they would resent you. Unconsciously, you might feel like you don’t deserve to be successful.
Or maybe you struggled in school, not because you weren’t smart enough, but you were too intelligent. You had a hard time fitting in, and because of that you didn’t turn in assignments or procrastinated and waited to do them until the very last minute because you knew that it wouldn’t be your best quality.
Fitting in meant playing small…
Many veterans who’ve come back after losing a friend while fighting overseas feel guilty — they don’t feel that they deserve to be happy and have abundance in their life.
Why Does The Word ‘Deserve’ Stop so Many People?
What does it mean to be “deserving”? What type of life do you see yourself living? What has been holding you back from that?
Think about ‘deserving’ like this: to serve. Are you serving others? If so, than you can easily say “I deserve …”
Do You Honestly Value Yourself?
Can you authentically say “I AM a gift to the world!”? Is it uncomfortable or easy and natural?
When you GET it, like in your bones and down to your heart and soul, then it’s so easy because you recognize it in everyone.
There’s no ego in it, just pure, unconditional love.
Yes, You Deserve to be Wealthy … Healthy … Loved … Abundant … Happy!
So if you find yourself in a less than healthy and ideal situation, take a moment and ask yourself:
- How does this relate to your feelings of self-worth and self-love?
- In what ways are you responsible for creating the reality that you are currently living?
After you ask, and can answer, those two questions you then need to move onto creating a new experience for yourself:
- How do you want to be living? In other words, what would you want instead?
- How can you include more self-love into your daily experience?
Start by being aware of how you treat yourself. You can pray, meditate, practice gratitude, affirmations, and ask your inner guidance for help.
You must first love yourself and the rest of the world will undoubtedly follow. It’s an ‘inside job.’ Always remember that you deserve better!
You deserve better! What has been holding you back from abundance in your life?
