The value of self-worth
I've been feeling so strongly about this topic lately.
It hasn't been a good few months for many people around me, and it really pains me to see a loved one hitting rock bottom because of issues outside his/her control.
What makes me feel 心疼 the most is when a person starts questioning their own value as a human being or as a person, asking themselves why this or that happened, and whether it was because he/she isn't good enough, or didn't do something well enough.
I look at all these beautiful people around me who are beautiful inside and out, they are wonderful, successful people with good hearts and souls, and here they are, standing in the bleak shadow of self-doubt, failure and unhappiness.
And I wonder, why they don't see themselves how others could see them! Each and everyone of them are infinitely precious and oh-so-loved in the eyes of many, looked up to, respected, admired.
Respect yourself enough to walk away from anyone or anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.
Our self-worth should never be dictated by how someone or something makes us feel. We all need to remember that in the eyes of God, each and every one of us are more precious than diamonds.
Please don't let anyone or anything make you feel otherwise!
I know how it feels like to never feel good enough, to be unloved, to feel unwanted and to feel like a failure. I know what it's like to be so fearful of trust, so afraid to let down my guard, and so hardened against hope and happiness.
I wish I could give each and every one of my friends a great big hug and put all these convictions and beliefs into them!
Dear loved one, you are worth so much more than you think you are.
Had lunch meeting earlier with @evonnz & @ronineel, who picked up the tab for lunch, paiseh leh! Thanks Ron!!
Now I'm watching some chiobu work on her laptop (I didn't bring out my laptop for once FML you see this is why I carry my laptop around everyday) while I sip on a green tea latte and wait for my shopping kakis @reeniepoh @yingdan and @xiesimin to actually get a move on!
We are going office shopping at IKEA!!!!! *super excited much*
Can't wait to see the girls (been more than a week since we last saw one another, which is very long when we usually see one another 2 times a week at least) 😬
And also, MEATBALLSSSSSSS. 😍
Meatball cravings satisfied, but really, the meatballs aren't as nice as they used to be a few years ago! 😕 At least the chicken wings are still pretty good.
After four hours at IKEA, I left with some stuff for the office, laundry basket, cardboard boxes, organizing racks with wire baskets, a small table for the printer and etc! Hope they will come in handy to tidy up the office!
Thank you @xiesimin for transporting the goods to office for me! ❤️
@xiesimin @yingdan and @reeniepoh plus me after a productive afternoon of IKEA shopping! 😁
$2 hotdog bun + ice cream cone + soda is awesome possum.
