Do you think you are worthy of love and belonging? If yes, why? If no, why not? Are you too fucked up? Too addicted? Not good enough? Too ugly? Too fat? Too unaccomplished? Too sad? If some random stranger walked by you and said hello, are they worthy of love and belonging? Yeah sure! I mean why not. So why aren’t you? Brene Brown has a whole thing about this. If you believe you are worthy of love and belonging, then you simply are. That’s it. If you believe you are worthy then you become someone who has love and belonging. So look at yourself again and ask. Are you worthy of love and belonging? If you can’t see yourself as someone good, then look at yourself the way your friends look at you. They look at you worthy of love and belonging. They wouldn’t be your friend if they didn’t. No friends? Then look at yourself like a stranger looks at you. You don’t walk around town cursing at every stranger. They’re just neutral and there. Not thinking anything negative of you and you to them. So look at yourself like you look at them. Just somebody who is there and present. So don’t look at yourself who is fucked up and too broken. Trust me. I think of myself like that. But it’s not true. I am worthy of love and belonging. And I don’t give a shit about what anybody thinks of it because it’s not their choice. it’s not up to them. It’s my decision, and I say that I am worthy.
