Knowing Your Worth

Is there a small voice in your head that tells you you’re worth more? That there is more to life and more to you? Have you had chit chatter and a constant story going on in your head? If your answer is “Yes”, you’re not alone.

I had a similar voice in my head for many years. For me it wasn’t about being worth more money, or owning more possessions. It was about smiling more, knowing what it truly felt like to relax and feel like I was worthy. It was about smiling more and knowing what it truly felt like to live an effortless life that I loved.

One definition of WORTH is the level at which someone or something deserves to be valued or rated. If you have ever felt unwelcomed, did not belong, unworthy or not enough, I can relate to your story. For many years I had a similar voice in my head. For me, it wasn’t about owning more money or more possessions, it was about the trauma of living my life in fear, anxiety, stress, hiding, feeling invisible and unvoiced, and learning how to embrace my worth, my value to accept and love myself.

Having been an undocumented immigrant for many years, I lived most of my life feeling unwelcomed in America, not knowing my worth. I struggled with depression, grief, sadness and the fear of being deported. In order to quiet the chit chatter in my head and address my feelings of unworthiness, I had a wake-up call. I needed to listen to that little voice inside myself to learn how to embrace my worth, my value, accept and love myself. This has been a source of transformation in my life. I know now that I am worthy! I’m here to tell you that you are worth more than you could ever imagine. There is more to life and more to YOU!

What are the ways in which you find yourself feeling unworthy? How do you consider or judge your worthiness?
