worthiness

Investing in yourself

Our relationship to money is more often than not complicated. It's a touchy subject for whatever reason. And it's definitely not evenly spread over the population. But, most people in my closest surrounding have enough to live and eat and even travel once in a while, but still it's complicated. 

I think we so often mirror the societies expectations or given "truths" and take them on as our own. How come we think it's not big deal to spend lots of money traveling to the other side of the world, but to invest in our own health through functional medicine is too much? When the one thing last for a week and the other could change your life quality everyday? How come we can spend thousands on that piece of clothing but when it comes to dealing with the demons in our own head we suddenly get cheap? 

Whenever I talk to potential clients about this I try to help them shift the perspective. The investment needed is foremost in themselves and not in me. And a lot of the time it gets down to worthiness. For some reason they feel worthy to invest in that new pillow case for the sofa but not in personal development. I'm not trying to promote my own services here, I'm just questioning the general assumptions of where it's okay to spend our money. 

What's that new kitchen worth when we still hate being in our own head? What's your take on this?

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,
