“I don’t want to see anyone. I lie in the bedroom with the curtains drawn and nothingness washing over me like a sluggish wave. Whatever is happening to me is my own fault. I have done something wrong, something so huge I can’t even see it, something that’s drowning me. I am inadequate and stupid, without worth. I might as well be dead.”

― Margaret Atwood, Cat’s Eye

We all feel those blue moments of non-worthiness, shame, and guilt when we criticize ourselves for the wrongs in our life. We abuse ourselves for not doing anything significant in our lives. Filled with wrath and anxiety, we wish to slap our cheeks.

Is it wise to insult ourselves?

We often forget that we may not be good enough for many people, but we’re no less than a superstar for a few of our loved ones. They love us unconditionally.

In times of despair and desperation, recall your memories of the past when you were enjoying quality time with those loving people. Be grateful for their generosity and unshakable faith in you. Trust your ability to generate better returns for them.

Life doesn’t walk in a straight line. It’s a zig-zag movement. Rigidity breaks our nerves. The more flexible you become, the better you’ll become a success.

Be flexible with your thought and self-image. If the ‘time’ is not in your favor, wait for the next call. It’s not that life is cruel for you; it’s just that you’re in a learning phase of life, and there is a beautiful lesson in the circumstances around you.

You can learn the lesson with patience. You’ve not been degraded but are distracted and can restore your self-worthiness with a mouse click. Come online and search for the artworks created to help you recollect your self-worth.
