I Am Worth It

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 506 People

    For many years I believed I didn't deserve a

    good man and that I got exactly what I deserved. I was led to believe that I was there to make the man happy and nothing else. Even at the expense of my own happiness. I grew accustomed to being put down and belittled. I gave in to his pressure every single time, just to make...

    Yeah ... I'm Worth It ...

    I know that I probably come across entirely different than I actually am, because if you really saw me day to day, you'd probably think, 'he just doesn't get it' ...  but I do :) ...  I just react differently, and after thought ...  I haven't always been deliberate...

    Worth It All

    I am worth being happy. I am worth someones love. I am worth indulging in something I like once and a while...or more. I am worth complimenting myself and others. I am worth being kind to others, and hoping for kindness in return. Yes I am, and so are you.

    My entire life I have struggled with my own

    self worth. The second I was rejected, told no, or I wasn't good enough, I would immediately run to cutting and that is something I still struggle with. It took me forever to realize that I AM WORTH IT and SO ARE YOU. Your value cannot be measured because it is simply off the...

    I Believe I Am

    I believe that I'm worth it..I may be emotional at times, maybe a little crazy every now and then,;) have a temper every once in awhile, but I'm also: cool, funny, silly, caring, sweet.

    Believing Is Part One

    I have trouble believing I am worth it, but some part of me knows that I am. I went to a seminar, and created a small peace of knowledge that helps me whenever I say it out loud or in my head. I am a poweful, courageous and pure young woman! I feel good just typing it. I hope...

    I Survived

    All the tears, all the pain, have brought me to the rainbow of now. I'm worth being well loved. I'm worth laughing too loud and loving too deeply. I'm worth this new journey of happiness because the past is gone forever. Now it's time to take a deep breath, dive in, and enjoy my...

    Falling Through The Cracks>>>>>>>>>>

    Because We Are Worth It

    When I first saw this group - the title reminded me of those cheesy L'Oreal commercials - "Because I'm worth it" - but upon reflection, there is a lot of truth in those simple little words. I think sometimes life has a way of tearing us down until we feel that we don't deserve...

    I have always questioned my worth,

    I never thought I was worthy of anything good. This might refer to the violent childhood that I used to live, it broke me but it created something much stronger now, I believe I am worthy of everything good, I work hard for it! Damn I earn it, and yes I deserve it. So now I know...

    Name Your Price...What Are You Worth?

    What sort of values do any one of us place on any set moment or any experience? We don't always stop to think about what each moment is worth. If we were to place a monetary amount on the value of a moment, perhaps we would spend it a bit differently. We often squander...
