Self – Worth
Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not have value. Jealousy scans for the evidence to prove the point that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you. There is only one alternative – self value. If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved. You will always think it’s a mistake or luck. Take your eyes off others and turn the scanner within. Find the seeds of your jealousy, clear the old voices and experiences. Put all the energy into building your personal and emotional security. Then you will be the one others envy, and you can remember the pain and reach out to them. -Jennifer James
There was a time in my life when I struggled loving myself. I always had lots of love coming from others, but there was something about the person that stared back at me in the mirror that felt empty. I looked for mind altering things to fill this void….relationships could not fill it, surrounding myself around others constantly could not do it. Because at the end of the day the mirror was near and I was empty and hungry. Stevie Wonder has a song on his album,” Conversation Piece” that talks about being in a crowd of 10 thousand people and feeling lonely. Been there many times personally! I spent my 30’s clearing away the wreckage of my 20’s and it wasn’t until my 40’s that things started to come together and make sense. I remember looking at me in the mirror to start my day and literally embracing myself in a self hug and saying,” I Love You Man.” And eventually the person that I saw in the mirror stopped staring back! He became my friend and the love of my life. He realized there was no such thing as a good day or bad day, just opportunities to shine and to show your true magnificence. And now that I’m in my 50’s I’m truly starting to live.
The physical image of the person in the mirror will eventually begin to change and fade, but the love we have for ourselves does not have to. These are the things that I try to instill in my girls, “love yourself in a way that know one else can!” If you truly love yourself would you walk into a crowd of people with a bomb strapped to you and destroy yourself along with the hopes and dreams of others?
