Hitting Rock Bottom
Self worth is a very important part of our lives impacting us emotionally, mentally and behaviorally. Depending on the value we place on ourselves, we approach life a certain way. As our opinion of our importance in the world changes we may make decisions differently. Keeping this in mind, we are able to reflect upon who we are at this moment and who we want to be in the future. As we think about our self worth, we ask ourselves many questions. Who am I? Where do I fit in this world? Am I a just one of many in society? Do I contribute anything of value to the world? We ask you to consider how you come up with your own value? What are the deciding factors? Who and/or what influences your perception?
Often times we find that as we struggle with the hardships in life, we catch ourselves falling fast and even hitting rock bottom. At every challenging turn, we convince ourselves it is only getting worse and continue down the path of destruction and despair. Instead of bringing ourselves down and giving up on the world, we must develop a strategy to lift ourselves back up and pull out of this pool of negativity and lost hope. There will always be difficulties we must face in life, it is up to each individual to decide how each will act during these times. The strong ones will accept what has happened, keep their heads high and have a strategy to push forward knowing things will eventually turn around. Continuing toward your goals is the quickest way out of these bouts of frustration and despair. Remember, when you feel you cannot do anything and nothing is going right, tell yourself you CAN do it! Each step forward brings you one step more in the right direction and closer to making your ultimate dream a reality!
This week, we challenge you to think about what you tell yourself when you fall into this funk and how you behave. Write it down and throughout the week, think about a plan you can develop for yourself to stay strong and lift yourself up and carry on.
Get Fit For It,
