We are only as good as we allow ourselves to be. Self-worth plays such a big part in setting the stage for the future we build. When we believe in who we are and what we can do, we climb mountains that lead us to our higher selves and our higher sense of joy. When we fail to believe in our fundamental right to thrive, however, we can find ourselves struggling to find our feet in an increasingly chaotic world.

Are you someone who struggles to see your inherent strength and beauty? It’s time for you to build up a strong foundation of self-worth so that you can empower yourself to move upward and forward in your life. No one can give you the family, or the job, or the home that you want. No one can provide you with happiness or rewrite the narrative you’ve been stuck with.

Although our partnerships are supposed to bring us love and joy, sometimes they can bring us stress and hardship. This stress can be toxic to our sense of self and even our physical wellbeing, causing us to unravel in a number of ways as the negative feelings compound and drag on. Believe it or not, a relationship that’s fraught and turbulent is one that which can be dangerous to our health as well as our happiness.

If your relationship has started to impact the quality of your life, then it’s time for you to stop and reassess where you’re at. Although we might love our partners, lives which are filled with insecurity and pain are not lives which are aligned with our deeper truths. We all deserve to be happy, and we all deserve to be respected.
