We live in a society that bases worth almost exclusively on what the eye can see. Sadly, the value of a human being has been condensed down to external conditions such as of looks, money, or possessions. And worse yet, it’s almost impossible to escape these “norms” due to the billions of dollars put towards advertising.
Society will tell you all of this matters.
I’m here to tell you society lies. All of the time.
Each of us are vulnerable to believing lies like these when we’ve been fed them for so long. The key is spotting them. Where do they show up in your life? How can you redirect your brain to believing something else that will serve you better?
You can begin by knowing that each of us are born with inherent value and we each die with that same value. That value is infinite. Can you add or subtract to infinity? The same logic applies in your life–anything you do or don’t do will never impact your worth.
If I’m inherently worthy, what will I do with my one beautiful life, just for fun?
