Our value is unconditional because it is based on our innate worth as a human being. It is not something to be earned. We were born with it. It’s the external world that makes us feel unworthy.
As we walk through life, the opinions of others are draped over us like gossamer veils until all that is left is a thinly disguised version of our original selves.
Wrapped in a cocoon of projected ideals and unrealistic expectations, it’s easy to lose touch with our intrinsic self and believe only what others tell us.
Thankfully, no one can take away your essence. It is there, waiting to emerge and fly free once again. Watch a child play, if you need a reminder. That spirited being is inside you.
