I realized this recently about a particular situation I’ve been experiencing for a while, and I realized that I’d allowed myself to continue with this situation that didn’t feel good at all, because I thought I didn’t really have much choice.
It may seem as though there are no other choices, but if you really think about it I’m sure there are. A different choice may take a bit more effort, but if it means that you’re having a better experience, with people who appreciate you for who you are, rather than who they want you to be, then isn’t it worth it?
When you settle for less than you want or deserve, you’re showing a lack of trust and respect for yourself. That’s the realization I had and I decided I would no longer allow that to happen. If you trust and respect yourself enough, then you won’t settle for anything that doesn’t feel good or for people who don’t treat you well.
Action Step: Think of any situation you’re experiencing that doesn’t feel good. Recognize that you deserve to feel good and ask yourself: ‘If I trusted and respected myself enough, what would I do differently?” Seek out the people who will support you, and respect you – but first you must trust and respect yourself.
Let this Unstoppable Affirmation support you on your journey:
I deserve the best of everything and am no longer willing to settle for anything less. I respect myself and trust myself to find the right way for me.
