We all have self-worth issues

I heard the brilliant JP Sears say this:

"There are two different kinds of people in this world; those of us who have self-worth issues, and those of us who are in denial of having self-worth issues. It makes us human."

I do believe that this is true. Whatever issue we have in life, when we really drill down to it, we always get to the same root, self-worth. Either we deny ourselves love because we don't believe we deserve it or we deny others love because we believe we need to prove our worth by positioning ourselves against others. Whatever the case we're choosing fear over love and that's always what hurts us and other people. 

If we could just all remember that this is part of the human condition and whenever we do something to hurt ourselves or others, it's because of our own self-worth issues, we might stop resisting it and start working towards loving ourselves and others a little more freely. 

Are you aware of your self-worth issues and actively working on resolving them whenever they show up in your life or are you in denial? Let's all work on it together. 

With all my love,

Everything is progress. Progress equals happiness.

What if this is true? Does it ring true to you? 

If everything happens for a reason, if there's a meaning to every event, then everything is progress. What if we are here to grow and learn and all experiences help us do just that, then we're always progressing in our development. 

Advancement in our soul is what we're here for, that's what makes our soul happy, advancement is progress. Therefore progress equals happiness. 

What do you think? 

I don't know that this is true, but I like to believe it is. We will never know anything for certain as long as we are here, that's one of the perks or pitfalls of life, so, we might as well decide what we want to believe. 

I believe we all have an ego mind that plays a lot of tricks on us. I believe we have a soul that is so much wiser. Sometimes we mix them up. That's okay. We're all human. It's all progress. Progress equals happiness. 

With all my love,
