Do you view yourself as worthwhile? Feeling worthwhile is often the crucial difference between success and failure. It’s often the difference between relationships that connect well and those that don’t. Feeling lovable, feeling like you have worth, caring enough about yourself to take good care of yourself, emotionally and physically, is the key ingredient in developing a strong, loving relationship with another person. To feel worthwhile is to believe you have positive qualities and strengths that others need and want. To feel worthwhile is to believe you have something positive to give others. Love is energy and loving yourself is your basic energy source. The stronger this source, the more love-energy you have to share with others. The deeper your love for self, the deeper your love for others. Take the time to identify any barriers that keep you from feeling worthwhile. Attack and eliminate each barrier, one at a time. The more barriers you eliminate the more worthwhile you will feel. The more worthwhile you feel, the better your relationships with others.
