This is the work! The work to believe you are worth it, you are lovable, you are valuable, you are enough, you matter, you are needed, etc.
Daring to believe all of the beautiful things about yourself are true no matter what you've been told, who told you, or what you learned by watching the grown-ups as you grew up. Choosing to believe the good, not just the shamey, shitty, things you took in.
Because the truth is still the truth whether you believe it or not and you are worth believing it. Not just believing the good in others but the good that exist in you as well. Daring to give yourself the unconditional love you didn't get from the people in your life that you were supposed to get it from, that no strings attached love from, that huge unfathomable love, the neverending love that helps us grow up with less shame and less doubt.
Consider this offer a kind of self-reparenting--you may not have gotten what you needed when you needed it but you can always give it to yourself now. And another beautiful thing is no one can stop you! Every day, multiple times a day, wherever you are, you can remind yourself who you are and the love and care you deserve.
And no one needs to know or will be able to stop you!
Every day you will be a little bit closer to knowing that--
YOU ARE WORTH LOVING
YOU ARE WORTH KNOWING
YOU ARE WORTH BEING IN THIS WORLD
