    Am I?

    I hope I am worth it, although to be honest I wouldn't think I am a lot of the time....

    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...

    Oh Yes, I Am.

    Yes, I may be different, unpredictable, naive at times and yes, immature.Yet you listened to me, held my hands, looked me in the eye and say the words that swept my feet away...  "You are worth it."You are worth the respect so I hear you out.You are worth the time so I am here...

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

         Many seeds were planted in me when I was little. The seeds came from ones that I should have been able to trust and love. The first seed came from a step father who molested and threatened my entire family. The second came from my mother who was too afraid to do anything...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.
