Some days I feel powerless. I think ‘what’s the point’ and start to question myself. I feel this way when a stranger is rude to me, I work hard and don’t get acknowledged or a loved one ignores me. This leaves me feeling as though I’m insignificant and don’t really matter but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The feeling passes and I start to come up with reasons for why I do matter. I realise each and every single one of us matter and were put on this earth for a reason. I came up with 3 reasons why we matter and each one of us is special. Here they are.
1. You are here. Sometimes we forget what a miracle it is to be alive. We get caught up in believing theres nothing more to life than working in jobs we hate, being in relationships where we’re not respected and appreciated. We forget that we are miracles. You were put on this earth for a reason.
2. There is only one you. There will only ever be one you. No other one person has the same strengths and passion as you. Tap into those, do what makes you truly happy and you will come alive. Keep searching for ways to turn your passion into a job so that work is something you love. Let go of relationships that drag you down and seek ones that lift you up. You will find your purpose, you will realise why you truly are so special.
3. The past. If you still hold hurt from the past it can come up in the present affecting the way you live now. It can get in the way of realising how special you are, how incredible you truly are. You are not what happened to you. You are not your mistakes. You are not the hurtful things people did to you. You are so much more. There is so much more to you than what is on the outside. You are more than you think. You are the soul that lives within, that is strong, beautiful, fearless and wise.
