You are worth it...

If you've been reading my blog from the start, you will know that I left an abusive relationship several years ago.  Since then, there have been many ups and downs, but mostly ups.  Life has gotten better and better, and I intend for my life to continue on that upward path.

If you are in a bad situation, or feeling low and worthless, or you just don't know where or how to take your life in a better direction, this post is for you.  You may not be ready to believe it yet, but you can get through, you can survived, because you do have value, you have worth, you are a survivor.

"She decided she was worth it" magnet by allistonstrine on

Once you realize that you have survived your situation,
realize that you will always survive.

You are a survivor.

Nothing can hurt you for long, or do permanent damage,
because you can and will survive.  You will be stronger for it.

If you don't believe that you are a survivor, or that you are strong, or better, or somehow
more than ever before, then you are either still in the middle of your negative situation. 

You must find a path out.

If you are still in it, don't wait for a hero.

Be your own hero.

Make your own path.

Write your own destiny.

Live by your own rules.

Do these things and you will be a survivor.

There will always be someone better off than you.

There will always be someone worse off than you.

They don't matter.

YOU matter.

Now matters.

Here matters.

Be here, be now, be you.
