Others won’t support us if we don’t support ourselves.

Sometimes we may feel like we get no support or respect. We may have the sense that we’ve been taken advantage of or disregarded. It can seem like others don’t back or value us.

And it may be true. Others may sell us short, not giving us the help we need or failing to respect our contributions. It happens.

But it often happens because we treat ourselves the same way. If we’re not certain of our own worth and don’t support ourselves with confidence and self-care, our feelings about ourselves radiate outward, encouraging others to deal with us carelessly.

Today’s message reminds me to be aware of my value and to back my plays. I don’t need to brag or be arrogant, but calm confidence and self-nurturing will serve me well.

Please reflect and share. Are you aware of your value as a person?
