We assign value to a lot of things in our lives. Whether it’s the actual presence of tangible possessions like a car and phone, or even those things we can’t see, touch or feel like friendships and education – they all are worth something to us!
Why is it though when we look at ourselves, we can’t always see our value? A growing trend has exploded among young people today, looking to others to determine their sense of worth. So many people get caught up in these relationships, where they let the other person treat them bad. It’s almost like they can’t see that they deserve better. The all so infamous words come to mind, “But I can’t help how I feel; I love him/her.” It’s true, sometimes you don’t have much control on how you feel, but you most certainly have control of your actions and how you respond to someone.
To me, when someone stays in a relationship with someone that doesn’t treat them right, it shows a lot about how they see themselves. Often times, we get so caught up in the moment that we fail to remember we get plenty more shots at finding that right person. While the idea of letting go and walking away might seem unbearable, you shouldn’t let people treat you below what you’re worth, because if you can’t recognize your value no one else will either.
