Don't ever think you are not worthwhile

The photo has nothing to do with the post. It's just a simple, perfect flower. In my journal of jottings from various self-help books, I came across an entry written in capitals. I replaced one word with several as I know the wonderfully varied community that is myLot do not all subscribe to the same faith. If you have no faith at all you may want to move on to something more interesting at this point. But if you believe in a Higher Being of some sort who cares about what happens to each individual, you might like to ponder on the following: He/She/It did not make junk. That’s all. It’s worth repeating: He/She/It did not make junk. I thought that was pretty powerful at the time – and still do. So if you sometimes feel inadequate and don’t always feel very worthwhile, remember – you’re not junk.

The sentence had a huge impact on me. I didn't have much belief in myself at the time. I'm glad I came across it again.

Very well said Judy, if we are here we worth something as every creature on this earth. This is the reason why it's wise to respect the other humans, but also the animals and the nature. I love your perfect flower.

We all are worthy. But at times that worthy part remains hidden and in some it is highlighted and accepted. When it is hidden seems the feeling of non worthy comes up. But I feel we all are worthy and that worthy is to be highlighted.

Some who are depressed think of this, and I think showing and telling them they are not junk but a very special person who is brought to this beautiful world will make them think about their importance.

I think everyone has worth. It is up to us not to waste that potential...

@JudyEv Yes, totally agree. When you posted this topic I was thinking of those individuals who commit crimes against those less fortunate for personal gain. Actually, all criminals and murderers who choose to waste the potential given to them.

I've heard that before, but sometimes it is hard to believe when someone is throwing harsh words at you.

True I am worthy as others are too. Sometimes it is hard to swallow that kind of an idea in a world that a dominator and dominated exist and where ruler and subjects exist. But despite that I still believe that no matter where I am in that situation I am not made lesser or more than other creatures in this planet.
