I hope you aren’t tired of reading this but, You Deserve More!
You are worth more than this world will tell you. Some, like myself, had to figure this out a little late in the game of life. But we’re making it; not just for ourselves, but also for those who came before us, and those who are arriving after. My hope is to teach everyone; because, despite its world’s ugliness, I know we were meant to see its greatness first.
I am a millennial, and I love my generation! We are innovative, rebellious, loving, and experienced! We experienced lack, loss, and a wide range of supposed mental disorders. Those of my generation who haven’t found their way as yet, use these problems as a crutch for their lifestyle. The millennials, however, who are becoming the reason for our name are dropping everything we were once taught to recreate enlightenment, so the rest of the world can wipe their eyes open.
Society…I’m onto you.
Our society feeds on our pain, suffering, and empathy for the worst. Why are people more susceptible to fall into depression than in love? Why are our tv shows always promoting drama, horror, and vulnerability without many solutions?
Do you remember the year that The U.S killed Bin Laden, and everyone danced over the dead?
Some victories are worth celebrating. Yet, some things that we consume, even the junk filling our grocery aisles are not good for us. How do you explain why these are in ours faces so frequently?
How do sex traffickers like Randall Volar and many more get away with ripping the souls out of vulnerable young people? How are their sentences similar to a slap on the wrist? How do we sleep, knowing our children…our people are losing themselves because we couldn’t fight for their worth?
The problem is, our society likes to feed on the vulnerable, weak, and the victimized. Society wants to see how we react… and don’t react. Will we become desensitized? Or will we strike out like a defenseless animal?
Our reactions to the vile of this world are dire to what happens next. The negative responses we emphasize are thus the source of power in this society. We will all encounter bad times. But how we respond will dictate how the world will continue to respond to us.
I’ve got a solution: It’s time we start acknowledging WORTH.
Pay attention to how much you, your companions, and your neighbors are worth. I’m not talking about monetary value. Doing so will only allow you to see yourself in an objectified form, creating another dilemma, and decreasing your worth. I’m talking about the value you give your thoughts, opinions, and individuality. I’m talking about what you have to offer in this world, and what you deserve in this lifetime…no other.
It’s time to take a step back and realize if you are worth the battles you fight regularly. I can guarantee that once you see more than what others see in you, you will notice just how petty some battles are, and you will open your eyes to the battles that you never thought you’d encounter.
Whether or not you are realizing this, one of our biggest battles in this life is for human value. We talk a lot about BLM, LGBTQ, feminism, and the list goes on. I’m all for our many movements! However, everyone wants to divide themselves up to raise awareness of how unfairly they are being treated and why. We are all being treated unfairly. The biggest culprit is the SELF.
You are not treating yourself well. And you deserve the best! Are you fighting for the best life for yourself, and your loved ones?
Or is that battle too high for you to reach?
I met a man the other day, who told me the only one way to find love is through Jesus. I’ve come to realize that a lot of people were raised to not find love in themselves. That one sentence this man told me was living proof that society would rather feed on our guilt and fear for stepping out of line, then tell us how special we are.
I don’t believe religion is a bad thing. I think ignorance is. It’s ignorant to believe that you can’t find divine love ANYWHERE on this planet. With 7 billion people? Hmm. I’d like a fact check on that.
My point is, it’s never too late to learn about your value. Finding this sense of peace will help you with half the battle; because you will truly know what we’re up against.
You are worth every moment that you live. It’s time to take your value down from a high pedestal and walk beside it, hand in hand. Make your worthiness the battle of a lifetime.
