My worth is not defined by…
… how (in)expensive the clothes I’m wearing are
… whether I have a „significant other“ or not
… whether I earn more or less money than the girls I went to school with
… how many friends I have – both on- and offline
… how much attention the dance/yoga teacher pays to me in class
… my inability to think logically aka the almost complete absence of a left brain
… the number of followers my blog has
… the ability to balance on my head or hands or bend my body into fancy poses
… how many „spiritual“ books I’ve read. or how many pieces of „classic literature“
… friends who fail to keep their promises
… whether I have an academic degree or not
… how many „important“ people I know
I could go on and on. Writing this list was actually not hard at all.
What’s hard is reminding myself of all the points in the list every single day and not forget about them when I feel hurt or insecure or lost.
What would you add to your list?
