This world is full of material things, money, and the mindset that you are worthless if you don’t have lots of money, look rich, or wear items that are recognizable to those who you feel are judging you based on your looks. I will tell you what my thoughts are. If we were all stripped naked and every dollar was taken from us, would we, ourselves, still believe we had value? What makes you valuable is not your net worth or your looks. How are you as a human being? I think of myself this way, I am a soul with a body, not a body with a soul. We could change our exterior and appear more important to those who are looking at us. If we did that, what would that do for us? Would it give us a sense of purpose or make us feel good about ourselves? Well, maybe on a temporary level. Deep down, it does nothing positive long term. If we spent more time on what is truly worth our time, we would feel better. I am not saying I have never felt my exterior needed to compete in this world. As a matter of fact, when I was younger and an adolescent, I fretted over my appearance. Wisdom does come with age and experience. I am grateful I get to grow older and make the next day better than the previous. The older I get, the less materialistic I become. I am not going to judge someone on their net worth. I once heard a story of a girl with 2 guys. The one guy gave her $20, the other gave her $50. She chose the one who appeared more generous. Now let’s break this down. The man who gave her the $20, that was literally all the money in his pocket. The one that gave her $50 had $100 in his pocket. So, you see how shallow the choice became. It is about the heart. It is about intention. Don’t judge based on appearance. What you think you are seeing may not and is mostly not the whole story. It takes time to get to know someone. It takes time to trust and to truly fall in love with the person. If you are holding onto the material possessions in this world, that will make it that much harder to look with eyes that can see deeper. You are valuable because you are unique and you were created out of love. You are loved and I hope you look deep within yourself and try to understand who you are. I am very confident that a person cannot love another( mate wise) if they do not love themselves first. I have heard so many woman say that a man is too good for them or they don’t deserve such a wonderful man. Then they look for the as*holes that treat them like dirt. Why do humans punish themselves through crappy relationships. I DESERVE a man who will treat me like the most important person in their life. I DERSERVE to be thought of as number 1. We all do!!!! Stop the negative thinking and stop derailing what could be the love of your life. Just as you DESERVE to be treated this way, your mate DERSERVES the same! Never stop telling them you appreciate them. Never stop going on dates. Always cherish and guard your time together. Carve time out because you choose to not because you feel obligated. Love is selfless and forgiving. Start by forgiving yourself and move forward. YOU DERSERVE NOTHING BUT THE BEST person to love you and hold you and cherish you as a person, not what you have or how you look.
