I had this interaction the other day in which I felt kind of chastised. Reflexively, I wanted to scramble to make sure the other person understood my value.
Instead, I paused. I noticed what was coming up for me in response. I wondered about why I felt that way, when I had first felt that way, and how to respond differently.
By the next morning, it was crystal clear. “Do not try to prove your worth to anyone.” Full stop.
The people who are meant to be a part of your journey already see your worth. They can see how brightly your unique light shines from miles away... no convincing required.
The energy of convincing is low-vibe. It’s an energy of insecurity and needing others to validate your worth creates a power differential where the other person holds all of the cards. In NLP terms, it puts you at “effect” instead of at “cause.” No thanks.
Personally, I’ve worked way too hard on myself to give away my power ever again. I am 100% at cause for my life and I’m not handing over the reigns to anyone else. That means no hustling to prove my worth to anyone ever.
Instead, I know that it’s my job to show UP every single day as fully and as authentically as I possibly can. It’s my job to share my story and the messages that I am called to share. The people who are meant to be my people WILL notice. I will shine my light in all of its unique weirdness as brightly as possible because the brighter I shine, the easier it will be for my real people to find me. The ones who don’t need any convincing.
And you... it’s true for you, too. I’m completely sure of it. 😘
How are you showing up fully today?
