Are You A Worthy Woman?

by Maxi

Worthy WomanThere is one expression that I have never agreed with: I don’t like you but I love you. To my mind … you have to get past like to get to love.

As a young child terrible circumstances caused me to be withdrawn, shy … not worthy. As an adult I became introverted, pessimistic, negative … not worthy.

Is this you? Hiding at the computer? Or at home? Or in your cubicle at work?  Afraid to make the connection with others? Not worthy?

For years I said: “Some people are not meant to be happy and I’m one.”

It took years of hospitals and therapy before gradually I began to “get it.”

It’s up to us—we make the choice. If you can look in the mirror and like the person looking back you have chosen your destiny. It sets you free. That’s the only person you’re beholdin’ to. Until you’re responsible to that person, you can take care of no one else. It’s that person who decides your happiness. And if you like her/him … you are worthy.

Hide behind a smile; it helps me to this day.

May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
