Today is another one of those days. They seem to come more often now. I feel an unidentifiable absence within me. My soul. My heart. Something is missing.
Probably something to do with self worth. I can’t seem to fill the void with anything else. At one stage I thought I was a “strong, independent woman”, but throw someone seemingly more put together than me in my path and I forget myself again. I want to impress them somehow, and I want them to make me feel valued, but if I don’t value myself first it’s a pointless task from the outset.
I’m not sure how to do it. What is it that gives us our sense of self worth? Is it complacency? Propriety? Conformity? Resignation? How do you measure yourself without comparison to others?
I might have to listen to this a few times to try and get it to sink in..
