You Are WORTH More Than You Think...

By: John Patrick Adams

 Life has screwed some of you up pretty bad…  Right now at this very moment, you’re feeling worthless; like your life has fallen apart and left you there to die… You’re walking around masked with a smile outwardly, yet you’re screaming as loud as you can inwardly…  Not sure why or how you’ve reached this place, but whatever has happened, it has left you feeling like crap… 

 

Words hurt, don’t they???  Words have crushed some of you… Not sure who spoke them, but whomever it was they were important enough to wound the core of who you truly are… Their words had so much meaning in your life until now you question your worth… You’re questioning if you’re good; thin; smart; pretty/handsome enough…   You’re questioning everything about yourself all from the words spoken by a hurt person aiming to hurt you…

 

Divorces hurt, don’t they???  Divorce has crushed some of you… Not sure what happened, but the residue of your marriage/spouse leaving has left you feeling as though your heart was ripped out; no one else will ever want to marry you; or that you’re washed up goods and should hide in a corner…  You’re now questioning if someone will love someone like you; want someone like you; find someone like you attractive…  You gave him/her the best of you, now you’re left feeling as though you’re left with the “worst of you”…

 

Getting Fired hurt, don’t it???  Getting fired has crushed some of you…  Not sure exactly why you were let go, but being fired has tarnished your ego…  You’re now feeling a sense of embarrassment; defeat; and the constant thoughts of being a failure has flooded your mind…  You’re now questioning whether or not another company will hire you with the crumbs of a fire on your resume…  You’re questioning your career path; your passion and sadly to say, some of you are questioning your purpose…

 

Being molested, raped, and taken advantage of sexually hurts, don’t it???  Being abused sexually has crushed some of you…  Not sure exactly who it was, how it happen, or when it happened, but being abused has left you feeling like the dirtiest woman/man in the world…  You feel no man will ever want someone who carries the wounds of violation; scars of sexual abuse; or someone who screamed for help, but no one could hear nor did anyone help…  You feel no woman will ever want a man who was penetrated against his will; raped by someone he trusted; left with the mental scars of another man touching him inappropriately…  You’re feeling worthless because why would someone want a person who feels as though what should be a gift (sex) is a curse…

 

What I know for sure is…  YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN YOU CAN EVER IMAGINE…  Life has a way of beating us down and causing us to question exactly how great we are…  Some of you have gone your entire lives questioning your value because of a parent who said “You ain’t shit and you never will be”….  Some of you are questioning your value because an ex-spouse said “You’re fat/ugly/unattractive/stupid and you better thank God for me because I’m the only one who will ever want your ass…”  Some of you are walking the "hall of shame" because you were fired from a job you were so excited and happy to have gained…   And then there are those of you who are carrying open wounds of an act done against your will…  Again, whatever the case may be, I’m telling you that you are PRICELESS, VALUABLE, FILLED WITH GREATNESS, UNIQUE, A ONE OF A KIND, AND YOU ARE IMPORTANT…  Hurt has a way of breaking us down, but healing is a choice YOU MUST CHOOSE FOR YOUR FUTURE….  I know it may hurt, but staying in the hurt won’t heal nor help you…  COME OUT, YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU'RE WORTH AND MORE…

 

You Are Worth More Than You Think!!!
