A Question of "worth"
Updated: Aug 6, 2022
I used to wonder about my worth, big time.
Then, someone else outside of me challenged my worth.
(my usefulness, my intelligence, my fortitude, my integrity, my relevance)
I had to dig deep and answer for myself, and by myself,
if I embodied those qualities or not.
Turns out... I did & I do - in all aspects.
And then I wondered if I needed to be all of those things,
all of the time, to be worth "it".
(someone else's time, respect, consideration).
Turns out... No - I don't.
Now it's about me & only me,
and it's not about me at all.
(connection, communion, intimacy with my god, my goodness, my highest self)
(the effort, the risk, the vulnerability, the time, the energy)
...Turns out... Yes.
Yes, it is.
Every. Single. Time.
