YOU have total control of your own VALUE. DO NOT sell yourself short.
YOU are in control of your vessel when you are AWAKE that is… first you have to be aware that you’re not sleep-walking throughout life. Many perils await when opportunists can sniff vulnerable ‘bystand’ers who’d ‘stand by’ their disguised enemies not knowing they’re about to get ambushed.
DO NOT give your good heart to such people who would use and abuse you. YOU are much better than that. And even if you’ve been used and abused before, DO NOT let them corrupt YOU. Do NOT become whom you despise, or you’ll end up hating yourself.
DO NOT put yourself in a position where your vessel can get hacked by a wolf, seeking to devour the last droplets of innocence that may still remain, resulting in your efforts becoming in vain.
When such tragedies do occur, learn to forgive yourself. Dwelling in the pain that causes mental swelling won’t take back what happened. Your remorse brings you into a different course, a more prosperous one, and you may feel you don’t deserve it after all the mistakes you’ve made. This is where the battle of the mind kicks in. You feel you’re not good enough to accept that new path ahead even though IT’S RIGHT THERE!
The path is there for you to walk to. But your mind cannot fathom it. The one thing holding you back is the belief YOU SET FOR YOURSELF that ‘you are not good enough.’ But who told you that? WHO made you believe you’re so unworthy? The same people who made you feel unworthy are the same people who most likely are narcissists who live with no remorse or empathy, they’ve become hollow vessels, and they’re seeking to recruit more miserable people.
DO NOT sign up for that club. The fact that there is a path for you is enough hope for you to FORGIVE yourself and WALK with fortitude. Tune out the nay-sayers, they don’t care. They’re mad they cannot access the path that YOU can. Why can’t they access it? Because they’ve chosen to relish in bitterness, anger, and absolute misery. They’ve volunteered to become an architect of their own hell, and they wanna hire you for another position at the Misery Company.
Decline that offer, otherwise that offer will make you decline.
DO NOT follow behind the footsteps of the misery company, don’t let their dark clouds hover over you, but the longer you spend being close to them, the more those dark clouds will lean over and overtake you, to the point there’s no overcoming.
Please know YOUR value is precious. If you can still see the path then it is not too late. For most of us, we struggle to realize we can make it through, and despite our flaws, our past, we can get passed it by finally backpacking down that path.
Where does the path lead to?
Away from self-destruction, and into a new, cleaner place of peace, pristine with tall trees that remind you of prosperous longevity. Tree branches resemble the inside of your lungs, the broncioles, which do supply the body with oxygen, needed for you to breathe.
The fact that you’re still living is a gift that should remind you of the possibility of YOUR longevity.
But it is now up to YOU to accept the path to reach that goal. Now, YOU must FORGIVE yourself, and move on. This trail isn’t going to walk itself. 😊
