I Don’t Know What I’m Worth Anymore

brokenreflection

Through all of the airbrushed, lightened and photoshopped pictures, it can get pretty cloudy and frustrating for some women to fully embrace who God has called them to be. Let’s be honest, the world has become overly obsessed with unrealistic ideas of what they think a woman should look like or even the way she should carry herself. If we’re truly honest ladies we’ve all been there…Unsure if we’re enough, who will love us and all of our flaws or should we settle for “Fool or Mr. No Good” because we don’t want to be lonely. Then we start to unfairly compare ourselves to Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and the like because that’s what seems to draw every man’s attention, all the while not realizing that we’re not comparing ourselves to those ladies at all…We’re actually comparing ourselves to their representative. That’s right! A FALSE idea of who the world thinks that they are.

I try not to pay too much attention to what’s on TV nowadays but the other day I was watching the Billboard Awards and I couldn’t help but see a trend that has become un-shockingly numb to most of our population. I saw flawless makeup, beautiful hairstyles, memorable performances and I also witnessed some questionable fashion statements. I was actually having a conversation with my grandmother at the time and she couldn’t believe some of the stuff she was seeing either. Ok, I get it. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be beautiful or wear a fashionable dress but when did it become ok to wear hardly anything in public? My grandmother raised me to always leave something to the imagination and leave some things for your husband’s eyes only. Sure, I may be a little old fashioned but I still think those same morals can be applied in this era.

Whoever is reading this, I just want you to know that you don’t have to lessen your value in order to be beautiful. You don’t have to post explicit pictures of yourself all over social media to gain the attention of people you’re probably never going to personally meet and you definitely don’t have to sleep with someone to prove that you’re enough. LISTEN TO ME! YOU ARE ALWAYS ENOUGH! You’re GORGEOUS, ONE OF A KIND and ROYALTY. You’re worth is not based off of how many followers you have on Instagram or Twitter. You’re UNIQUE, SMART and in spite of what you’ve been told, YOU ARE WORTHY OF LOVE. Don’t ever allow anyone including yourself, to fill your head with thoughts of doubt.

 

YOU ARE POWERFUL

YOU ARE STRONG

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

YOU ARE AMAZING

YOU ARE LOVED

YOU ARE CHERISHED

YOU ARE GOD’S HEARTBEAT AND…

YOU ARE WORTHY OF GOD’S BEST

  1. Wow thank you so much for your words. I used to think this way when I was single and give so much advice to my sisters that now that I’m in a relationship I needed to hear these words to remind myself that God wants what is best for me and I will not settle down…currently going through a break up💔😭

    1. Diana,
      I’m truly grateful that you chose to not only check out my site but you also allowed yourself to become transparent and reach out to me. Sometimes when we end up in relationships that mean us no good, we tend to lose our identity and our self worth becomes quite foggy.

      I don’t think you making your way to my site and reaching out to me was by chance at all. I want us to stay connected. If you would, please reach out to me via the “Contact DeAndrea” section with your email. Trust me when I tell you Greater Is Ahead for you 😃 God bless you!

  2. Amen! We are ALWAYS enough just as we are. If we WANT to improve something and that’s our OWN wish- go for it. But not if we think we have to to be beautiful or on par with anyone else. We are unique as God created us to be, and when he looks at us, I think he smiles upon his beloved creation. 🙂
